Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - HTNAVIMUMBAI - G Mo­hi­ud­din Jeddy ht­for­nav­i­mum­bai@hin­dus­tan­times.com

The Peas­ant and Work­ers Party (PWP) or­ga­nized a mas­sive mor­cha to CIDCO Kharghar of­fice on Tues­day. The party sub­mit­ted a mem­o­ran­dum of 18 de­mands re­lated to civic is­sues of the node and de­manded that they be re­solved within a month. The party has threat­ened to or­ga­nize a mas­sive ag­i­ta­tion at CIDCO head of­fice if the de­mands are not met in the spec­i­fied time.

The mor­cha was led by for­mer MLA Vivek Patil and in­cluded PWP district sec­re­tary Balaram, zilla par­ishad mem­ber Ram­seth Kar­avkar, J. M. Mha­tre, sarpanch An­jali Thakur, for­mer deputy sarpanch San­jay Gharat, gram pan­chayat mem­ber Ashok Gi­ramkar, Gu­runath Gaikar etc.

Kharghar’s pop­u­la­tion has in­creased rapidly. How­ever, the res­i­dents are up­set due to in­ad­e­quate wa­ter sup­ply, garbage is­sues, lack of pub­lic toi­lets, cul­tural au­di­to­rium, health is­sues, lack of li­brary in a node known as the knowl­edge city.

The hawk­ers have taken over the foot­paths at sev­eral places, garbage is not picked up reg­u­larly which has put the health of the res­i­dents at risk.

A del­e­ga­tion of PWP work­ers met CIDCO of­fi­cials and sub­mit­ted the mem­o­ran­dum of de­mands to them and warned of a mas­sive ag­i­ta­tion.

CIDCO of­fi­cer, Pradeep Dhake said: “Three recre­ational cen­tres will be de­vel­oped for the res­i­dents of Kharghar area by March-end. Fa­cil­ity of Ghanta gadi fa­cil­ity will be pro­vided, two cul­tural au­di­to­ri­ums in the node and vil­lage wise com­mu­nity cen­tres for the vil­lagers.”

Ex­ec­u­tive en­gi­neer (wa­ter sup­ply) Ramesh Giri said, “Wa­ter sup­ply has also been planned from Hetawane dam which will help re­solve wa­ter short­age.”

PWP TAR­GETS MLA

Balaram Patil said, “PWP has for the past 10 days been plan­ning the ag­i­ta­tion. As soon as Pan­vel MLA Prashant Thakur learnt about it, he got the bhu­mipu­jan done of 26 play­grounds and gar­dens to be de­vel­oped by CIDCO. PWP has for years been fol­low­ing up on the is­sue while the MLA is try­ing to take credit for it.”
