Mahul pipeline affected residents to gherao MLAs, seek implementation of HC order

In a major victory for the Bhar Bachao Ghar Banao Andolan (GBGBA), the Bombay High Court recently asked the Maharashtra government to either relocate or compensate the the Tansa Pipeline Affected Persons in Mahul. The compensation, HC said, should be enough so as to enable them to rent a house in Mumbai.
In its order dated August 8, 2018, uploaded a couple of days ago, the Bombay HC asked the government to decide on one of the two options latest by October 1. "We have not heard of any decision from the government till date. Residents of Mahul feel agitated by this callous attitude of the government even when the HC has approved of their grief", GBGBA says.
It adds in a statement, "Aggrieved residents of Mahul have decided to do the gherao of the MLAs of the areas where they were previously residing. As the residents of Mahul are still listed as the voters of their previous areas, they think that their MLAs -- especially who are part of the party in power -- are duty bound to work for their welfare and resolving the issues of their rehabilitation."
The residents in Mahul resettlement site have been resettled from different locations in Mumbai. All these residents have written to their respective MLAs way before requesting them to resolve the issues of their rehabilitation. After receiving no words from any of the MLAs, the residents decided to do gherao of MLAs outside their residents/office to ask what have their government done to resolve the issue of rehabilitation, especially on the lines of directions given by the HC.
The gherao will take place on October 2.
