Strong BJP performance, declining Cong, and positive student perception of AAP



Saurashtra University students frequently express their support for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP, but there is also a continual hum of concerns about unemployment, test paper leaks, and price hikes.

Many students claim that the BJP has brought “vikas” by upgrading the electricity and water infrastructure and creating roads, but some of them also cast doubt on its track record in the areas of education and health.

And some of these first-time assembly poll voters seem to have taken notice of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), rather than the Congress, who has historically been the BJP’s major foe.

Ranva Dalip, a Morbi native and first-year master’s student, says of the AAP, “AAP ka vichar achchha hai education par (AAP’s thoughts on education are good)”. He swiftly adds, though, that it will take time for the party to become well-known.

The loud campaign of the Arvind Kejriwal-led party in Delhi, which is focused on corruption and other concerns like education and health, has found some supporters on the campus of the largest institution in the area, which enrols students from all across the region’s several districts.

While many poll experts feel that the Congress is still the BJP’s main competitor in the state, the majority of these young people perceive the party to be unappealing, creating an opening for the AAP to enter the race.

Mehul Makwana, a BCA student, praises the BJP for improving facilities for state residents and declares emphatically, “Modi hi aayega” (Modi will definitely win again), unfazed by the fact that the prime minister’s position is not up for grabs in these elections and highlighting how he is seen as synonymous with his party in his home state.

There are, however, a few opposing viewpoints as well.

One student claims that the state administration responded to the Morbi bridge collapse disaster slowly because Delhi has “control,” while another claims that while Modi has done a lot of wonderful things for the nation and the state, he hasn’t been able to stop the rise in prices.

A master’s student named Kachhot Kaushik claims that higher education has gotten pricey and expresses support for Kejriwal’s pledge of free power, health care, and education.

According to him, the regional party’s leadership in Delhi and Punjab has received positive reviews.

The state has seen a few incidences of question paper leaks, which is a common issue. Some students also criticise the Gujarat government of failing to provide adequate work chances for them.

Even though the BJP looks to be maintaining a strong presence, the AAP seems to have been able to leave an effect on the young minds dissatisfied with the ruling party for a variety of reasons with its aggressive and visible campaign.

A total of 451 CCTV cameras have been installed at Taloja Central Jail as a key step towards improving security and surveillance in order to avoid inmate conflicts and misbehavior. Amitabh Gupta, Maharashtra State’s Inspector General of Prisons and Correctional Services and Additional Director General of Police, presided over the sophisticated CCTV system’s inauguration on Monday.

In the next stage, the remaining cameras will be placed. AI technology is included into these cutting-edge cameras to improve their surveillance capabilities.

Amitabh Gupta spoke to the group and underlined the value of these CCTV cameras in stopping prisoner misconduct and guaranteeing efficient inmate supervision. It is anticipated that the technology would reduce misbehavior and enhance Taloja Jail’s general security protocols.

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



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.

The Ecological Balance Of The Mangrove Zones Of Navi Mumbai Is Threatened By Illegal Godowns



Illegal godowns threaten Navi Mumbai’s ecological balance in mangrove zones.

The Godowns

Illegal godowns built by filling them with waste pose a severe danger to Navi Mumbai’s delicate mangrove zones. In addition to upsetting the natural equilibrium, this illegal practice increases the likelihood of flooding during periods of high precipitation.

According to reports, there is a rising tendency of land grabpers encroaching on mangroves and filling them with garbage to make way for unlicensed warehouses, such as coal and scrap godowns, to establish flat areas. Vital drainage systems in the Thane Belapur region are under risk due to the fast encroachment of areas like Sanpada, Juinagar, and Nerul.

The way in which the authorities have handled these crimes is being scrutinized; concerns have been made concerning the illicit generation of considerable income and the delivery of energy to these godowns. Fears about Navi Mumbai’s long-term effects on the ecology and infrastructure are voiced by concerned individuals.

The urgent necessity for action to safeguard mangrove ecosystems has been emphasized by the Forest Department, which has elevated the matter to CIDCO. This urgent environmental situation will be discussed at the conference tomorrow, highlighting how vital it is to protect Navi Mumbai’s natural legacy.

“We have sent a detailed report to CIDCO and it will be discussed in detail during a meeting,” a Forest Department Officer stated.
