Shiv Sena goons vandalised ‘Adani Airport’ board in Mumbai

Published

on

Shiv Sena, a member of the ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi alliance in Maharashtra, is opposing the renaming of the Mumbai airport after the Adani Group.

In July this year, Adani Group took over the management of the Mumbai International Airport from the control of the GVK Group. The Adani Group controls a 74 percent stake in the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport, with 50.5 percent stakes being bought from GVK Group and 23.5 percent from minority partners, including Airports Company South Africa (ACSA), and Bidvest Group.

The goons damaged boards naming Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport as Adani Airport on Monday. They shouted slogans against the signboard when the airport is named after Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.

Some of the workers later came on to the Western Express Highway located nearby due to which traffic movement on the city’s arterial north-south road was disrupted for some time, an official said. He said some of those involved in the incident were detained and the process of registering a case was underway.

On The Sukhapur To New Panvel Route, Commuters Suffer From Potholes

Published

on

The Adai Circle area’s roadways have suffered greatly from heavy rains, creating large potholes that are now a major hazard for travelers. Large potholes causing traffic congestion and car damage have made the section of road under the Panvel Municipal Corporation’s (PMC) authority from Sukhapur to New Panvel especially problematic.

The worsening road conditions have been a source of irritation for commuters heading towards Panvel from the Nere Dhodhani, Akurli, Harigram, and Morbe regions. Due to the uneven surface created by the difference between the lower tarred road and the recently built cement concrete road, cars must drive more cautiously, which lengthens travel times and frequently causes traffic bottlenecks during peak hours.

A commuter from the area said, “The potholes are not only slowing down traffic but also causing damage to vehicles.” “It’s becoming increasingly difficult to navigate through this area, especially during office rush hours.”

The Panvel Municipal Corporation is being urged by locals and commuters to act quickly to fix the potholes and restore smooth travel on this important route.

Proposal To Turn Belapur Playground Into Hospital Is Opposed By Forty Plus Cricket Association

Published

on

The Forty Plus Cricket Association protested in front of the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) offices on July 12 to voice their strong opposition to plans to turn a playground in Belapur into a hospital. Through City Engineer Shirish Aardwad, the association sent a declaration to Commissioner Dr. Kailas Shinde claiming that they had constructed grounds in Sector 15, Belapur, and Ghansoli on their own dime. Strong opposition has been expressed to the abrupt decision to use the Belapur stadium for a hospital, despite it having previously been recognized as a designated field in the Development Plan (DP).

The group raised concerns by pointing out that the planned location is located in Coastal Regulation Zones (CRZs) 1 and 2, where building is not permitted. The government has stuck to their choice in spite of this. The injustice of reallocating land area for a hospital when there are other suitable locations was highlighted by President Pradeep Patil.

Patil insisted on moving the hospital to a new location away from the allotted playground. Officials including Vinod Mhatre, Dr. Rajesh Patil, and Vikas Mokal were present during the demonstration, along with cricket players and other association members.
