"At that time, there was no plan to redevelop the society. Fifteen days ago, Latesh Gada of L K Infracon told me he was redeveloping the building and three days ago, he put up aluminum sheets to barricade the site. In spite of the precaution, I noticed debris would keep falling onto the road. I was afraid the memorial would be damaged and he offered to remove it properly and put it back in its place after the building was ready. We got the memorial dismantled and have preserved its pieces and the BMC plaque in my office, so there is no question of razing it down with a bulldozer," he said.
Ravrane alleged MNS was deliberately politicising the issue with an eye on the 2014 assembly elections. "Where were they when we built the memorial? They are only doing this because elections are approaching. I am ready to face probe."
