At 10.30 am today, hundreds of police people along with MMRDA officials, private security-people and half a dozen bulldozers demolished all the houses that people had re-built as part of the Ghar Haq Satyagraha in Mandala ten days ago.
Residents of Mandala were gathered under the main tent as their houses were being demolished around them. They have vowed to keep their Satyagraha non-violent and did not fight the authorities. The authorities said they would ensure a meeting with the Collector today which seems rather unlikely since most people present at the site of the Andolan were arrested and taken away in police vans to an undisclosed location.
