Airoli MLA Sandeep Naik has been demanding that the illegal construction in Digha be regularized under the cluster, BSUP or SRA scheme both during the last Congress-NCP government and to the present BJP-Shiv Sena government. Under the banner of Digha Ghar Bachao Sanghursh Samiti, the MLA has been constantly writing letters to Chief Minister Devendra Fadavnis. The continuous follow up seems to be finally seeing results as residents living in illegal constructions in Digha might soon get relief from demolition action.
During the on going State Winter Assembly Session in Nagpur, Airoli MLA Sandeep Naik raised the issue again. Citing the example of how the state intervened in the Campa Cola matter and ensured the homes of around 230 families were saved from coming under hammer, on similar grounds he appealed the state to save the homes over 35000 people living in illegal constructions in Digha. He urged the state to file an intervention for relief in the matter before December 31 this year.
Replying to MLA Sandeep Naik in the assembly, Minister of State for Urban Development Ranjit Patil assured that they will not let any injustice happen to citizens and the state would see to it that relief for citizens was taken up in court in time. Airoli MLA Sandeep Naik paid gratitude to Chief Minister Devendra Fadavnis and State Minister Ranjit Patil and others who have played a crucial role in saving homes of citizens living in illegal constructions in Digha
