Yash Gourkhede, a social activist and founder of Jan-badlaav movement from Nagpur spoke to Nation Next about the situation at city’s slum in Gautam Nagar, situated at Nildoh, Hingna tehsil. 

Gourkhede said, “On January 17, on a court’s order, Tehsildar Hansa Mohane demolished the slum. There were kids and women in the houses, yet they (officially) brutally continued the process. There were around 5o houses in the slum. These slum-dwellers are poor labourers!”

The social activist informed that the slum existed before 1995 and the slum dwellers’ names are also mentioned in the voter list of year 2001.

“They are protected under law and are bound to be rehabilitated. So it was the administrator’s duty to get the people new homes, but nothing like that happened,” he added.

He further said, “After the demolition, Mohane and senior Police Inspector Narke brought trucks at their own cost. They promised homes to a few slum dwellers and filled the vehicles with their belongings without consent, just to later abandon them (slum dwellers) everything mid-way.”

Gourkhede accused the officials of allegedly treating a handicapped lady named Pushpa who belongs to the Scheduled Caste. “Pushpa and her eight-year-old son were dragged out and left on the road. The boy resisted and as a result, his nose got injured in the process and both were thrashed by the police. Speaking about another lady, her household items are missing too.”

“Before the demolition drive, the now homeless people were sitting inside a mandir for shelter when two bouncers and some people came and started fencing the place,” he said.

On the account of arriving Republic Day festival, a heritage dialogue was held on January 22, 2023. The aim was to celebrate the buildings that are living witnesses of the spirit of power centres belonging to today’s Indian democracy and the era of 1903 when Nagpur was the capital of the Central Provinces.
 
The walk included a brief narrative from 1861, where after the mutiny, the detached position of Nagpur District and territories of Saugor and Nerbudda led to the formation of a new province termed “Central Province.”
 
The walk covered the architecture of the structures that were the centre of British rule in the central provinces. Various public buildings of that era, such as the old secretariat, the old High Court building, and the General Post Office, which are eminent examples of British colonial architecture, were covered. Materials like sandstone, basalt, and brick masonry are used to craft the elements of the building’s architecture.
 
During the walk, the stickers designed by team Sakha were distributed to participants as a souvenir, which was one of the key attractions for the participants and a reason for enthusiasm too.
 
The walk was followed by snacks and tea, over which dialogues on improving the condition of heritage structures were held. The citizens sharing their independent opinions was the true celebration of Indian democracy.
 
The walk was organised under the leadership of Ar Sandeep Pathe by team Sakha, which includes Ar Mayuri Deodhar, Ar Amruta Gangakhedkar, Ar Renuka Marotkar, Ar Yashwardhan Pincha, Ar Asmita Korpenwar, Ms Anjali Karpate, Ms Sakshi Mishra, Ms Shruti Beohar and Ms Vrushal Gurbaxani
