Mumbai | Monday, Apr 20 2009 IST
Farmers and tribals activists group Vidarbha Jan Andolan Samiti (VJAS) has extended its support to Independent candidate Vikram Bokey for the Pune Lok Sabha seat, who hails from that region also.
Asserting that Mr Bokey had worked for agricultural sector and prevention of farmers' suicide in west Vidharba, VJAS president Kishore Tiwari, in a statement, has urged the more than one lakh electorate in Pune to vote for him.
Mr Bokey, an ex-IPS officer, had a distinguished career spanning 20 years in the Indian Police. Apart from targeting anti-social elements and criminals, he also headed the highly acclaimed ''Delta Force'', active in providing security on the Pune-Mumbai Expressway. He is also the president of Maharashtra Organic Farming Federation, which takes up activities for farmers' welfare, including the suicide prevention schemes in 1,680 villages across Maharashtra, he added.
