CBD BELPUR: Af­ter tight­en­ing his ad­min­is­tra­tion, mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Tukaram Munde has de­cided to go out and get first­hand in­for­ma­tion on the is­sues in the city from res­i­dents them­selves.

Start­ing this Sun­day, Munde will, along with his of­fi­cers, meet res­i­dents ev­ery week at pub­lic places like gar­dens where peo­ple come in large num­ber for their morn­ing walk and other re­cre­ational ac­tiv­i­ties.

This ini­tia­tive was started un­der the ‘Walk with the Com­mis­sioner’ drive.

Un­der this drive, he will at 7 am this Sun­day morn­ing go and meet res­i­dents at the Sa­gar Vi­har jog­ging track, sec­tor 15.

“The com­mis­sioner will in­ter­act with the res­i­dents and hold dis­cus­sions with them on civic is­sues that con­cern them,” said deputy mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Ja­gan­nath Sin­narkar.

“He will get to know their de­mands and ex­pec­ta­tions. The res­i­dents will get an op­por­tu­nity to meet the com­mis­sioner per­son­ally and in­ter­act with him,” Ja­gan­nath added.

“I am of the view that in­stead of the res­i­dents com­ing to my of­fice to meet me, it would be bet­ter if I my­self went and met them,” said Munde.

He added, “My ob­jec­tive is to make Navi Mum­bai a mod­ern and smart city based on the sug­ges­tions and con­cepts that the res­i­dents give me dur­ing the drive.”

He said that he was con­fid­ednt that the res­i­dents would re­spond positvely to the ini­tia­tive.

My main ob­jec­tive is to make Navi Mum­bai a mod­ern and smart city based on the sug­ges­tions and con­cepts that the res­i­dents give me dur­ing the spe­cial drive. TUKARAM MUNDE, mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner
