corporator-2In our series “Your Ward ! Your Corporator’s Performance !” today we take you to ward number 49, of Vashi. Vrushali Chitre meets residents of the ward that includes Sector 10, Vashi to find out that they are upset with their Corporator Ramesh Shinde who’s been unsuccessful in solving the grave problems faced by the residents. The residents have specifically complained about the failure of the Corporator to do justice to the most burning issue of the ward – that is redevelopment of CIDCO-built dilapidated JN 1 and JN 2 apartments. The Corporator of Ward No. 49 – Ramesh Shinde belongs to the ruling NCP party in NMMC. This time in our series “Your Ward ! Your Corporator’s Performance !” The NMTV Team visited this ward that comprises of Sector 10, Vashi. A survey exposed that residents are unhappy with their corporator Ramesh Shinde. The biggest failure of the corporator according to residents has been the issue of redevelopment of CIDCO built dilapidated JN type apartments. This is the same ward that houses Shradha Apartments. While redevelopment is the most burning issue of the ward, its not like the corporator has faired any better on other civic fronts. For instance locals complained about the poor conditions of roads and hawkers’ menace. At the appeal of the corporator Ramesh Shinde, the NMMC has constructed a Samaj Hall on this plot that earlier housed a stage. Residents say that they do not see the logic behind making a Samaj hall that prevents them from, organizing cultural festivals like before. Another civic issue that haunts residents is stray dogs. A resident highlighted another major point – he said that prior to Ramesh Shinde, his wife was the corporator of the ward. That means the public gave the Shindes not one but two chances to represent their issues in NMMC and get them solved but they have failed the people. And while NMMC has started laying new water pipelines inside condominiums, a resident made grave allegations that the pipelines were not new but old ones just painted fresh and laid again. Residents say that ever since Shraddha apartments was vacated, there has been absolutely no cleaning done by NMMC that has resulted in debris thrown all around. And if you think this could be all, there’s more. Even water being supplied in the ward is dirty, say residents causing diseases. We also met Corporator Ramesh Shinde who had nothing to offer but lame excuses for his failure to perform on any of the burning issues of the ward. Making another lame remark Ramesh Shinde stated that the problems he has failed to solve till date will be solved soon. Stay tuned to “”Your ward !
