Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVI MUMBAI - TAS­NEEM KAUSAR

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.
