huger-strike-3The BJP party has gotten into the election mode. The party recently took up the issue of encroachment at the Thane Railway station and have sat on a hunger strike. The party is protesting the Satis project in Thane which has led to congestion in the station premises. Massive developmental work is being carried out at Thane railway station under the Satis Project for quite sometime now. The railway station is also flanked by rickshaw stand and several shops making it difficult for pedestrians and vehicle drivers to find their ways through this congestion. All the more, illegal hawkers sitting on both sides of the road have added to the problems of the commuters. Not even a single footpath is left for the citizens to walk along. The BJP party has taken up this encroachment issue. Speaking to the media, party workers stated that despite 16 security guards stationed here, hawkers continue with their business. The protestors have stated that they would continue with the strike till the entire area is not made free of encroachments. From Thane, Manoj Singh for NMTV news.
