KALAMBOLI GETS CENTRES FOR SENIOR CITIZENS
KAMOTHE: With Cidco beginning construction work of four recreation centres for senior citizens at Kalamboli, costing Rs45 lakh, a recreation centre at Kamothe seems a distant dream.
Senior citizens in Kamothe have been waiting for such a centre. Despite Cidco’s managing director Sanjay Bhatia’s order to set up a centre in Kamothe, no action has been taken. Cidco officials said the recreation centre has not been set up owing to legal hurdles.
Centres at Kalamboli gardens in Sectors 2, 6, 8 and 10 will be thrown open to public after monsoon.
Giriraj Shinde, a Kalamboli citizen, said, “The existent parks are in a shambles. There are no street lights. Anti- social elements thrive there.” Kamothe does not even have a garden.
“Former Cidco chairman, Pramod Hindurao, had promised us a centre here,” NS Karandikar, president, senior citizens’ sanstha, said.
