Every monsoon while brings relief for the citizens from the scorching heat, it also brings a sense of doom for the people as there is always one question in the minds of the people, will the city survive the rains or water accumulation and logging will become the order of the day. We went out on the streets to know what Navi Mumbaikars felt and found out that many thought the city was not prepared for the monsoons. The people raised the concern of cleaning work still unfinished as rains are likely to hit the city early. One of residents stated that while the cleaning workers cleaned the drains, the stretch was left as it is and that NMMC should not just give away contracts but follow up the work done too. While residents are praying that NMMC’s pre monsoon work on time, the biggest concern for Vashi remains that despite assurances, the illegal garden built inside the Mini Seashore holding pond has not been restored and so experts feel heavy rains might lead to flooding in adjacent sectors of this holding pond in Vashi.
