Telecom official gets goods lost during quake Thursday, August 23, 2001

TIMES NEWS NETWORK
PALANPUR: Believe it or not but the Bhuj police returned the refrigerator and some clothes only last week to Dinesh Kumar Rohatgi, general manger of BSNL Palanpur who lost his valuable during the earthquake. When he was in Ahmedabad on official work he was amazed to get the information.

It was really an inexplicable pleasure to receive a thing that he never thought he could ever get back. Indeed, it was a telephonic message from Bhuj police that the home appliances reportedly belonged to some telecom official have been recovered by the police from a person who during interrogation confessed to have stolen the wares from a Sahajanand flat, which was abandoned as it was in a dangerous condition.

First he could not believe that he could get back his belongings. However, on the insistence of his colleagues, he sent his daughter and wife to Bhuj where they found that the fridge and some clothes were in the police custody. Soon he, too, left for Bhuj and collected the lost articles.

The joy of recovery of the lost articles was great, but 'the prompt action initiated by the police lent me greater satisfaction and so also respect for the Bhuj police who speedily restored the valuable items to the rightful owner.

Usually it takes months to take the possession of stolen things as the police has to traverse the long litigation route.

Rohatgi, who has been transferred here from Bhuj, was a witness to the dance of destruction on January 26. After having witnessed such a great tragedy he had given up all hope that he could ever recover the valuable items of his household.

"Let us hope that many others like me would be lucky to see their lost valuables", was his fond wish as we parted.

Fishermen delegation from South Gujarat to seek CM's intervention Thursday, August 23, 2001

TIMES NEWS NETWORK
SURAT: A 11-member delegation of fishermen from coastal areas in South Gujarat left for Gandhinagar on Wednesday to seek Chief Minister Keshubhai Patel's intervention in the deadlock arising out of a fishing row between the state and Maharashtra.

About 750 fishing boats from the region have been banned from entering the 'Bhaucha Dhaka' in Mumbai. If the problem is not solved in a week, all the 1000-odd boats will set sail for fishing and "matters will be tackled on the spot as the situation demanded", said Shree Gujarat Vahnavatu and Machhimar Sangh spokesman Subhashbhai Tandel.

With the new fishing season having commenced on Tuesday, several hundred fishermen families have been stranded on shore with no solution to the imbroglio.

In a meeting held on Tuesday evening at Pardi near Valsad, under the banner of the Sangh, it was decided that the state government be pressurised to intervene in the matter for an amicable solution, Tandel said.

Around 230 boats _ whose licences are yet to expire for entering the fishing jetty in Mumbai _ ready to set sail on Wednesday had been asked not to do so in solidarity with those who had been denied entry, Tandel added.

For over 30 years, the trawlers have been landing at the fishing jetty in Mumbai and the ban on their entry will not be tolerated, Sangh sources said.

It was also resolved that the state government should ask the Centre to persuade the Maharashtra government to reconsider the whole matter and lift the ban at the earliest. Meanwhile, the issue was also raised on the floor of the state Assembly recently by Umergaon MLA Ramanbhai Patkar. According to Patkar, there was no communication by the Maharashtra government in this regard.

However, a long-term solution would be to develop a commercial port at Umergaon at the earliest, for which provisions have already been made in the state budget. But, as of now, things should be pursued vigorously by the state government keeping in mind the fact that fishing is the only means of survival for thousands of families currently stranded on the shore, Patkar added.
