NMMC carried out a massive demolition drive at the godowns situated at Mafco Market. A month back, NMMC had sent notices to these godowns to remove the illegal sheds but with no response, NMMC carried out the drive. There are around 150 godowns and cold storages at Mafco market, Turbe. Many of these godowns had illegally put up sheds in their shops which were not just dangerous but also were loss of crores for NMMC. NMMC’s hammer came down on around 12 godowns including Ashok Foods, Harsda Foods, Bajrang Cold storage and others. These shops had illegally covered around 10000 sq mt y putting up shed. NMMC has faced a loss of around 4 crores between the month July to October. While many are saying that NMMC is stalling its demolition drive due to political pressure, AMC Suresh Patil does not think so. With cameraperson Abhay Prasad, Sudhir Sharma for NMTVNews.
