RESIDENTS OF SEC 17 UNITE TOGETHER TO TEACH A LESSON TO GREEDY PUBLIC REPRESENTATIVES

Sec-17Residents of Sector 17, Vashi showed politicians their standing in society by coming down heavily on them during a public rally to protest converting a garden into a parking lot. Situated in the midst of 83 buildings is a garden and a playground for children at sec 17 Vashi. However, NMMC without taking the opinion of the local residents have decided to built a multi-storeyed car parking on the garden. When the media exposed the same, local residents came together and strongly protested against the decision. Some women residents calling it the movement of the people stated that they would not take the help from any political party. Looking at the intensifying protests, some political leaders too jumped in but it was rather an embarrassing situation for these leaders when the residents blamed them of deception. The local leaders where seen only defending themselves. NCP’s Sudarshana Kaushik tried to insist that she too was a part of the rally as a local resident but her efforts proved futile. This historical protest by the local residents of sec 17 Vashi is not just a lesson for political leaders but is also a motivation to all those residents who sit mute to the injustice done to them. While the civic authorities sell off barren land, it is quite unfortunate that in the constituency of the Environment Minister Ganesh Naik, his own party coporators are and are now eyeing gardens which are a very important to the environment.
