After the darbaar when the media quested Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik about the same, he once again criticized the attitude of NMMC officials and said that the bills would be corrected. With a murder reported two days back and three stores looted, another issue that was taken up by the media was the growing crime rate of Airoli to, which the Minister said that the police is trying to control it.
