You may aware thet people of iruvappapuram panchayat of thoohukudi district are having struggle for 100th day today since october 2nd 2007,by demanding sperate panchayat which was merged with sayerpuram town panchayat in the year 1964.This satyagraga was energised the people to take up non-violent direct action.
Some of the people of sayerpuram are objecting this satyagraga and are pressurising the district administration to stop the same.Meanwhile,on 7th january morninga lady named Muthar expired at pethanachiamman nagar,one of the hamlet of iruvappapuram panchayat.Since the panchayat was merged with the sayerpuram town panchayat and continuosly neglected for development work.it does not have burial ground.So people appealed to the district administration for providing burial ground.Therevenue officials came down to the village they surveyd the land and allotted a place.They requested the people to bury the body.The suggestion of the governemnt officials was honoured by the people and the body was buried on thet place. Yesterday morning the police arrested Mr.Jeevankumar and his collegues for trespassing the same land for the same purpose for the same body.And he prevent the governmnet officials to deliver service.
- Can you find any trespassing in it?
- Mr.Jeevankumar and others could be arrested for th trespassing the land, What punishment can be given to the government officials who motivate them to do the same.?
- Mr.Jeevankumar and others did what the governemnt officials suggested.Do you find anywhere in this case history,Jeevankumar and others prevented the govrnemnt officials to deliver their service?
This is the reveng action of police because Jeevankumar and their collegues are struggling to attain dignity at iruvappapuram.Though they observed and motivated last 99 days non-violent struggle at iruvappapuram for seperate panchayat the police got angry and revenged them.
