Mhatre said, “I had been following up on the illegal Digha buildings issue for the past two years. I had asked for the buildings to be regularised after the residents being charged a penalty or that they be rehabilitated.”
She added, “I had also demanded that the land mafia that cheated them be brought to book. Action should also be taken against the officials who provided them with electricity and water all these years giving legality to the buildings.”
