Son of a Dhule farmer who died

after consuming poison at Mantralaya seeking compensation for

his land warned Friday that he too would commit suicide if

three Maharashtra ministers who `broke' their promise to the

family did not quit.

On January 22, Dharma Patil (84) consumed poison on

the premises of the state secretariat Mantralaya here,

demanding adequate compensation for his land which had been

acquired by the government for a solar power project.

Patil's son Narendra said Friday that he has written

to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and asked him to sack

three of his ministers if they themselves did not quit.

If they did not step down, the chief minister himself

should resign, Narendra said, warning that he would jump off a

mobile tower otherwise.

After Dharma Patil's death, ministers Girish Mahajan

and Jaykumar Rawal had assured that action would be taken

against those found guilty, Narendra said in his December 6


Chandrashekhar Bavankule, another minister, too had

given an assurance in writing, and yet no justice was done to

the family, he alleged.

"In the event of the ministers not resigning...then

you (Fadnavis) should accept moral responsibility and resign,"

Narendra wrote.

"Immediate action must be taken....Or else, I will

have no option but to commit suicide," the letter said.
