While speaking in a monsoon session on Thursday, Chief Minister Eknath Shinde informed that a comprehensive policy will be prepared soon for the redevelopment of dangerous police colonies in Mumbai and its suburbs. CM Shinde said he earlier visited the police colony in front of the Tehsildar’s office in Borivali West and inspected the horrible condition of this building.
He said, “The condition of many police colonies in Mumbai is very pathetic and the families of the policemen living in them are living in their hands”.
The CM said he visited the police colony and interacted with the police families to know their problems.
CM Shinde informed that the issue of police colonies has been pending for a long time and he has also discussed with Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis about finding a solution to it. In the past, an attempt was made to define a policy in this regard, but it could not be implemented. So now after taking the post of Chief Minister, a comprehensive policy will be prepared to solve this problem once again. For this, CM Shinde informed that a meeting will soon be held with all the major officials of the Home Department on this issue.
The CM also interacted with the police families living there. At this time, he clarified that the problem of your houses will be solved as soon as possible and also efforts will be made to increase the number of police houses.
CM said by pitching private builders and developers, the government can propose extra FSI and give affordable houses to Mumbai police.
