Suresh C. Angadi, MP, has threatened to launch a “non-cooperation movement” against the district administration if it failed to remove a controversial grave near Khanjar Galli in the city by Wednesday.
Talking to presspersons here on Sunday, he said that Feroz N. Sait, Congress MLA, had clarified that he was neither in support of those who brought up the grave overnight two months ago nor opposed to its removal.
Therefore the grave should be removed, allowing the Belagavi City Corporation to resume construction of a parking area for public.
Abhay Patil, former MLA, who was also present, said that some persons had made false claims on the site of the grave. However, Mr. Angadi declined to look into the old records but wished to go by the tahsildar’s claim that the site belonged to the BCC for over two decades.
