Gadchiroli Feb. 14 (District correspondent) The gap between poor and rich has been increasing in the country. The maximum wealth of the country is accumulated in the hands of a few moneyed people while the number of people below poverty line has alarmingly increased. Democracy of the country is in danger due to several undemocratic and unconstitutional acts of the government, said Prof. Shyam Manav, noted social worker while addressing a public lecture here on Monday evening.

Akhil Bhartiya Andhashraddha Nirmulan Samiti and Jan Adhikar Manch had organized this lecture on the grounds of Shivaji Mahavidyalaya here. Dr. Shiwnath Kumbhare, President of Gurudeo Sewa Mandal, presided over the programme while Mr. Marotrao Kowase, former MP, Dr. Namdeo Usendi, ex MLA, Suresh Zurmure, State Secretary of ANIS, Hasanbhai Gilani, senior Congress leader, Adv. Govind Bhendarkar were prominently seated on the dais.

Mr. Manao strongly criticised the central government for selling out the public undertakings of the government which were raised by the previous government for the development of the country. This government wants to make the handful of corporates who are close to the ruling leaders, more rich at the cost of the public property, he alleged and warned that this act is quite injurious for the sound economy of the country.

Mr. Manao also described the central government decisions like de-monetization, corona measures etc very wrong and the promises like bringing back black money, depositing Rs. 15 lakhs in the accounts of the countrymen and providing 2 crores of jobs to the youths very misleading. He called upon the people to dethrone this government in the next election and save democracy and constitution.

Mr. Manao also criticised the recent attack on journalist Nikhil Wagle and tow other social workers in Pune and said the state government is responsible for this cowardly attack. The secular forces will continue their work despite such attacks, he declared.

Dr. Kumbhare in his presidential speech said democracy is the root of this country and it needs to be strengthened. All the people should work unitedly for this, he appealed.

Dr. Usendi and Mr. Zurmure also spoke on the occasion. Mr. Manohar Hepat made an introductory speech, Prof. Sandhya Yelekar conducted the programme and Vilas Nimborkar proposed the vote of thanks. Mr. Gautam Meshram, Dewanand Sontakke, Dharmanand Meshram, Hansraj Undirwade, Raj Bansod,  Purushottam Thakre,  and others took pains for the success of the programme which was largely attended by the people.
