Pravin More had started a similar fast unto death on April 26 this year for the completion of a main road which passes through his ward. The fast was suspended after the Chief Officer of Palghar Municipal Council had assured to complete the work.
The administration of Palghar Municipal Council turned a deaf ear to demands of development work raised by Councillor More which prompted him to start the fast again. The administration has been assuring Pravin More about the completion of work but More is not convinced by oral assurances by the Council authorities
