fisher-man-1The condition of the fish market near the Turbhe ward office is in such a dire state that the fishermen have no option but to carry out business in front of the ward office. NMMC had developed the Turbhe fish market couple of years ago. However, the fish market has seen no repair or maintainance work forcing the fishermen to market in dire situations. The roof looks as if they would fall any day, walls are cracked, there is no provision of electricity supply, water supply or even the basic hygiene necessities and the fishermen are forced to carry out their livelihood here. Their pleas falling on deaf ears, the frustrated fishermen have warned Tubhe ward office that if their conditions were not improved then they would be forced to sell fishes inside Turbhe ward office. Fishermen are praying that NMMC’s next budget makes allocation for conducting repair and maintenance work for their premises as well. With cameraperson Ravi Nikam, Archana Tripathi for NMTV News.
