VASHI: Mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Tukaram Mundhe’s ‘Walk with the com­mis­sioner’ re­ceived an over­whelm­ing re­sponse in Vashi, on Satur­day, with a large num­ber of res­i­dents turn­ing up to jog and talk with him.

Mundhe reached Vashi’s mini seashore at sec­tor 10A at 6.15am, 15 min­utes be­fore the sched­ule time tak­ing most of his of­fi­cials off guard. He then jogged around the pond with the res­i­dents be­fore hear­ing the is­sues.

The res­i­dents spoke to Mundhe on is­sues of water sup­ply, hy­giene, en­croach­ments, park­ing, roads and foot­paths, con­struc­tion of util­ity build­ings, beau­ti­fi­ca­tion, gar­dens, drainage lines, toi­lets, health, and trans­porta­tion.

Said Mundhe, “The res­i­dents have raised lo­cal is­sues that af­fect them. Un­like other nodes, Vashi is a de­vel­oped node with a large up­per mid­dle class pop­u­la­tion and hence they have ad­di­tional is­sues.”

He added, “I as­sured them that we will take ac­tion within seven days on is­sues that can be tack­led im­me­di­ately. For the long-term ones, we will take pol­icy de­ci­sions and act at the ear­li­est.”

He added, “We have taken some de­ci­sions right here. There was a com­plaint of mo­tor use, that pre­vented 24x7 water sup­ply in an area. We got the mo­tors re­moved right now.”

Mundhe told the res­i­dents, “To save you the trou­ble of com­ing to all the way to NMMC head­quar­ters, we have equipped and em­pow­ered our ward of­fices to take de­ci­sions on mat­ters.”

He added, “We have taken up large-scale use of in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy to pro­vide max­i­mum on­line ser­vices.”
