Veteran lawyer and former speaker of legislative assembly Shantilal Chaplot started his “fast unto death” stir today demanding establishment of High Court Bench in Udaipur. President of Ration Dealer Association, Roshanlal Samota also joined Chaplot in the hunger strike.
Chaplot said that they had to take this extreme step since they were only getting false assurances from the government but no tangible measures. Chaplot added that UDH minister Shri Chand Kriplani wanted that Chaplot does not sit on hunger strike but he was determined to take the stir to logical conclusion and would not even mind giving up his life for this movement.
