Rajan Vichare unhappy with the NMMC for failing to take action against the accused responsible for illegal construction.
Shiv Sena MP from Thane Rajan Vichare alleges that a local NCP leader had illegally constructed nine seven storeyed buildings on the land meant for construction of garden at sector 16 A in Nerul, Navi Mumbai. The Cidco had signed an agreement with the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation for the construction of a garden in 2007. However, the rules were flouted as illegal buildings have come up in this area.
Rajan Vichare said, “I am unhappy with the administration for failing to take action against the accused responsible for the illegal construction. If the corporation can’t stop unauthorised constructions then it should be dissolved.”
Rajan Vichare had met Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation Commissioner Abasaheb Jarhad and expressed his unhappiness over the biased attitude adopted by the civic agency. Shiv Sena leader Vijay Nahata, District president Vijay Chougule, Communication PRO Vitthal More, Deputy District president K N Mhatre, City head Suresh Mhatre, leader of opposition Saroj Patil and several corporators of Shiv Sena were present. Vichare also demanded strict action to be taken against the NCP leader and the officials who were hand in glove with him. He expressed unhappiness over the civic body’s apathy towards assigning tasks to corporators. Vichare was not pleased with the slow paced decision making process of the corporation.
Shiv Sena leader Vijay Nahata said, “We won’t tolerate the harassment meted out against our corporators while performing their duties. Officials must stop interfering in their work and allow them to work.”
Mr Vichare had visited Bhayander railway station to understand the problems faced by commuters from the suburb. He also had promised to construct elevators for benefit of commuters at the station. Vichare had recently met Central Railway general manager, S K Sood, to demand an increase in the train frequency on Thane-Vashi-Panvel route. He suggested 12-car rakes be provided instead of the 9-car ones, considering the increase in the number of commuters.
Vichare wanted the corporation to take steps to curb the spread of dengue and resolve the problems pertaining to the issue of garbage pick-up vehicles.
