CBD BE­LA­PUR: Dis­tressed by the long- pend­ing prob­lems of New Pan­vel and Khanda Colony, mem­bers of Peas­ants and Work­ers Party ( PWP) or­gan­ised a huge rally to City and In­dus­trial De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion’s ( Cidco) Pan­vel of­fice on Tues­day and de­manded res­o­lu­tion of the prob­lems.

The protest rally, l ed by for­mer MLA Vivek Patil, started from Tulsi Heights com­plex of Sec­tor 5, New Pan­vel.

“Res­i­dents are fac­ing prob­lems such as ir­reg­u­lar wa­ter sup­ply and is­sue of plots for re­li­gious places. There are no plans for slum re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion. There are no pub­lic toi­lets, gar­dens and play grounds. We have listed 18 such prob­lems that need im­me­di­ate ac­tion from Cidco,” said Patil.

“Cidco must change its style of func­tion­ing or else peo­ple will change them to get their ba­sic needs ful­filled,” said Pail, who also op­posed the gov­ern­ment’s de­ci­sion to re­open ladies bars.

“Cidco had a lease deed of 60 years but the houses con­structed are in pa­thetic state, merely 20 years since they were con­structed,” added Vivek

A del­e­ga­tion of PWP lead­ers led by Pan­vel Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil’s op­po­si­tion leader Sandip Patil held dis­cus­sions with Cidco’s su­per­in­ten­dent en­gi­neer and Pan­vel ad­min­is­tra­tor Sud­hakar Visale.
