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

Prob­lems re­lated to park­ing, street lights and garbage were dis­cussed dur­ing the walk with the com­mis­sioner ini­tia­tive of mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Tukaram Mundhe on Sat­ur­day. Mundhe met res­i­dents at Chin­choli pond in Shi­ra­vane.

De­spite the rains, a large num­ber of res­i­dents as­sem­bled at the venue. Mundhe also re­ceived com­plaints about san­i­ta­tion, water sup­ply, con­struc­tions, elec­tric­ity, en­croach­ment, health among oth­ers. He as­sured that the lo­cal is­sues will be re­solved in 7 to 15 days while pol­icy de­ci­sions will be taken where re­quired.

“The ma­jor prob­lems here as per what the res­i­dents com­plained about are street­lights not work­ing, hap­haz­ard park­ing

and lack of park­ing space and un­hy­gienic con­di­tions due to garbage,”said Mundhe dur­ing his visit.

The com­mis­sioner en­sured that the street lights will be re­paired at the ear­li­est and ac­tion will be taken against the con­trac­tor if he fails to ful­fill his com­mit­ment.

Speak­ing about the park­ing is­sue, he said that the prob­lem arises due to il­le­gal park­ing in the area which is done by com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles.

“I have is­sued in­struc­tions to the traf­fic depart­ment to take ac­tion in the mat­ter. If there is re­peated breach of con­di­tions, par­tic­u­larly by the com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles, we will have their li­cences can­celled,” he said.

“There is a grow­ing park­ing is­sue in the city for which NMMC is tak­ing ur­gent mea­sures. The park­ing ar­eas in com­mer­cial places are be­ing opened up. Plan is also be­ing read­ied for no park­ing zones, one way roads and park­ing plots .The res­i­dents need to co­op­er­ate with us,” he added.

Re­fer­ring to the com­plaints of garbage, the com­mis­sioner said the prob­lem arises due to the ven­dors in the area who sell veg­eta­bles.

“For per­sonal and pub­lic health it is es­sen­tial that garbage is seg­re­gated. Cit­i­zens should en­sure that there is min­i­mum garbage. They should not lit­ter the roads or spit in the open,” said Mundhe.
