Hindu Janajagruti Samiti memorandum to the MLAs of Ratnagiri district
MLAs promise to study memorandum and present it in the session!
Chiplun : According to the report of the National Crime Records Bureau, the state of Maharashtra ranks first in cases of missing women and children in the country. What happened to the missing women from Maharashtra? Did some of them face the same fate as Shraddha Walkar? 9 states have laws in place to prevent the spread of ‘Love Jihad’. This law should also be implemented in Maharashtra. Incidents of religious conversion are also on the rise in the state. According to the recommendations made by the Justice Chandrasekhar Dharmadhikari (retd) committee, the Maharashtra Government immediately implement the ‘Anti-Conversion Act’. These demands were put forth in a memorandum submitted by a delegation the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti to Mr. Yogesh Kadam (Balasahebchi Shiv Sena MLA of Khed-Dapoli) and Mr. Shekhar Nikam (NCP MLA of Chiplun-Sangmeswar). The delegation also presented relevant documents while discussing these issues.
After this discussion, MLA Yogesh Kadam and MLA Shekhar Nikam responded positively and assured the delegation that they would study the available information and raise this issue in the session.

Assurance by MLA Yogesh Kadam and MLA Shekhar Nikam to the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti
The birth place of the great patriot Lokmanya Tilak in Ratnagiri is still under grave neglect. The birthplace falls under the Department of Archeology, Ratnagiri, Government of Maharashtra. An Urdu Bhavan has been announced at Ratnagiri; however, the government has shown apathy towards the birthplace which is a national heritage site. The Hindu Janajagruti Samiti shared the information received under the Right to Information Act and the documents regarding the various agitations and memoranda from across the state to MLA Yogesh Kadam and MLA Shekhar Nikam. “We will discuss this with the District Magistrate and Minister Sudhir Mungantiwar,” they said.
The Samiti delegation also raised the issue of unchecked ticket prices being levied by private travels, which ultimately is a burden to the common man. MLA Yogesh Kadam was also requested that the government should look into this and solve this issue.
