Bharat Mukti Morcha condemns Agasaim Police inspector Devendra Gad for slapping Vishnu Kankonkar on April 19, 2014 on Bambolim beach.
The Police Inspector has transgressed his police duties in order to slap Vishnu Kankonkar, a fisherman in Zuari river from Bambolim.
Fishermen of late has been agitating against the infringement of their fishing rights after Hotel Grand Hyatt commissioned water sports with speed boats in the Zuari river.
Fishermen has raised objections to the authorities and once succeeded in convincing fisheries department to revoke the No Objection Certificate (NOC) granted to Speed boats for tourism purpose.
Police Inspector Devendra Gad has intervened on behalf of the Hotel Grand Hyatt as if he belongs to their private security team and slapped Vishnu Kankonkar.
This very act of his is so harmful to himself as he does not know the value of mulnivasis even though he himself is a mulnivasi but acted on behalf of Bamon raj to suppress the uprising of the fishermen. It is a shame for him to raise his hand for those who are fighting for the true cause of humanity and mulnivasi’s freedom.
