Many areas were flooded due to heavy rain in Mahadevpur constituency on Monday. On Thursday, MLA Arvind Limbavali visited the Raj Canal area near Whitefield Cody Circle in Nallurahalli. The situation there was reviewed. A portion of Ameela’s commercial building next to the Raj Canal was demolished by the authorities with the help of a bulldozer. Ameela came to the MLA while he was touring and tried to bring to his attention that the wall was built legally. They tried to explain by showing the documents. But there was an unexpected response from MLA Arvind Limbavali.
The MLA tried to grab the documents from the woman’s hand. Arvind Limbavali abuses Amila despite her pleading to hear her argument. The entire affair was recorded on camera. In the video, Limbavali orders the police to take the woman away from there. It was recorded in the video that the woman was being beaten and asked to be locked up. Amila says that it is not government land and she is speaking with respect. Please realize that you are talking to a woman.
But the MLA is not only encroaching on the land but also questioning whether they want respect, it was recorded in the video. The video also warns that another kind of language will have to be used at the same time. In the video, MLA Arvind is clearly heard saying that they have occupied the Raj Canal area with the help of corrupt officials. Arvind warned in a stern voice that they should take Amila and make her sit in the police station, not only are they encroaching on government land but they are also asking for respect and courtesy. Later, Amila was dragged away by the women police.
A case was registered on the grounds of obstructing official duties and taken to Whitefield Police Station… They were released at half past seven in the night due to the agitation of the Congress ranks. Amila said that the commercial complex has been constructed at Raj Kanalua as per the rules. The project map has also been approved by BBMP. He said that when he tried to show this map and other documents, the MLA abused him with offensive language. They complained that they had asked to give some time to stop the demolition but they ignored it. He said that the MLA threw away the documents from his hand. Ameela expressed her grief that despite all this happening, the police did not pay attention to anything and did not register a case against the MLA.
On the other hand, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala, who shared this video, complained that this is BJP’s attitude towards women’s safety. Arvind demanded an apology from the woman. Arvind Limbavali, who rejected this, accused Ameela of being a Congress worker. He said that he is ready to apologize if she is evacuated from there.
