At this time Shri. Ravinra Padwal explained his points on why it is necessary to establish a corporation for the protection of forts and castles. Descendants of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s maternal uncles also expressed their views to remove all Jihadi encroachments from the forts in Maharashtra . Explaining the role of ‘Maharashtra Gad-Durg Rakshan Samiti’ behind the march, Shri Sunil Ghanwat said that more than 100 unauthorized RCC constructions were revealed in Vishalgarh. Similarly, houses, graves, dargahs, mosques and other types of encroachments have been illegally encroached on 35 important forts of the state including Raigad, Lohgad, Kolaba, Vandangad, Durgadi Fort. These encroachments on the forts of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj are not only offensive to the believes of Shivaji  lovers, but also cause great annoyance. Officials of Archeology Department who are responsible for such encroachments should be identified and legal action should be taken against them.

 Drinking alcohol, tampering the art works or damaging the walls, nuisance to violate the sanitary situation etc. within the premises of many forts should be stopped and also the archaeology department should pay attention to stop the large-scale collapse of many forts, dilapidated towers and cannons. The government should appoint sufficient staff for the conservation of the forts, and for the regular cleaning and sanctity of the forts. It is also suggested that, the government should take the help of fort-loving organizations. The Department of Archaeology should launch a website that provides proper information and legal aspects of all the forts. There should be facility for the citizens to register their complaints about their reactions and suggestions for the protection of such forts and castles . In the meeting, various demands were made to include the public and organizational representatives working for the conservation of the forts along with the descendants of the Mawalis, the lovers of forts and Shivaji Maharaj. The upcoming Corporation for the conservation of Forts and castles must include such representations from all sorts of public inspired by the ideals of Shivaji Maharaj and Maratha legacy. The fight which started with the inspiration of Chhatrapati Shivaraya will continue till the forts are protected and conserved, Mr. Ghanwat said.
