The walkers and joggers of mini sea shore Vashi have to face the brunt of foul smell due to the garbage dumped in this area. Instead of fresh air and cleanliness, the walkers and joggers of mini seashore are forced to move about in foul smell and dirt. The mini sea shore has become the dump yard for the people to dispose off their garbage which is creating a nuisance for them. People knowingly throw garbage in the water, thereby polluting the environment. Senior citizens, who came here for walking are affected due to the foul smell and the breeding of mosquitoes. While on one side of boating activity is carried out, on the other hand, huge dump of garbage can be seen. Residents voiced that each one should themselves initiate and help to keep the city clean. Walkers also voiced that NMMC should take the matter seriously and restrict people from dumping garbage here. When we tried to contact the local corporator Pranali Lad, she was unavailable for comment. Last year at this time, corporators were actively seen running around promising to solve civic issues in their ward, in lieu of civic elections. However, with elections over, looks like the local Congress corporator Pranali Lad has disappeared even as Mini sea shore reel under pathetic conditions.
