We have learned from movies that sometimes it takes a big fight to expose corruption in a work. But many times it also happens that people spend half their lives fighting wars but they do not get justice. Consider this the helplessness of our society and law that people give their lives but their names do not come out. One such case has come to light from Mathura, a pilgrimage town in Uttar Pradesh.

An old man, who had been on a fast against corruption for four months, died in Nauzil Police Station area of ​​Sri Krishna’s Nagri Mathura. His health deteriorated late on Tuesday evening. When his health deteriorated, his family took him to the CHC, where his condition was critical and he was referred to the district hospital. But he died in the district hospital.

Devkinandan was on hunger strike since February

66-year-old Devkinandan Sharma, a resident of Mathura, has been on a fast to death against corruption since February 12, 2024 at the Nagarkot Dham temple built at his residence. Their main demands are to investigate the corruption in the work done by the Zilla Panchayat Raj officials, village toilets, community toilets, mini secretariat, MGNREGA. They wanted that the corruption taking place in these cases should be investigated and the guilty should be punished.

Was complaining for 13 years

He had been sending complaints continuously for the past 13 years. Dharnas, fasts, marches, almost every method was adopted, but the authorities did not listen. On the contrary, officials hush up the matter by filing false reports on complaints. But still he went on a fast unto death over these issues and continued to protest in his own way.

He died in the district hospital

SDM Adesh Kumar reached the protest site on Monday evening after seeing Devkinandan’s deteriorating health. After finishing the fast, he asked for a body checkup, but asked Devkinanda to resolve the issues in writing. This matter could not be discussed as it is outside the jurisdiction of SDM. His family took him to CHC Naujil late on Tuesday evening when his health deteriorated, but he was referred to the district hospital where he died.

The officials did not pay attention

Information has surfaced that elderly Devkinandan Sharma was on a fast against corruption for the past four months. But no officer even noticed it. If the authorities had been careful, the old man might not have lost his life. He sat on a fast and gave up all food and water, but the authorities did not listen to Devkinandan and with his demands, Devkinandan bid farewell to the world.
