‘NO RE­SPONSE FROM GRAM PAN­CHAYAT OF­FI­CIALS’

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVI MUMBAI -

The Ganesh Ghat lake at Mi­lap­na­gar is part of the 27 vil­lages that were ear­lier un­der the rule of the gram pan­chayat. It is now un­der KDMC’s ju­ris­dic­tion.

Ear­lier, Jy­oti Iyer, a res­i­dent of Dom­bivli, had com­plained about the ill-main­tained lake to the civic of­fi­cials and had de­manded not to give per­mis­sion to im­merse huge idols in this pond.

But, she did not get any re­sponse from the gram pan­chayat of­fi­cials.

“Ear­lier, the gram pan­chayat used to clean the pond a month be­fore Gan­pati fes­ti­val. The clean-up was only once a year. Flo­ral waste and bro­ken parts of the idols have made the wa­ter un­clean and have spread diseases,” Jy­oti Iyer
