Reportedly, Ali went to Bordoli village in his constituency, where large tracts of land belonging to the Vaishnav Satras had been freed by the authorities from the clutches of illegal settlers.

There he tried to provoke the people by giving an inflammatory speech against the government and even uprooted a pillar erected by the authorities on the Satra land as an act of defiance.
