Several slum dwellers residing at Juhu have been forced to leave their settlements by BMC due to lack of legal documents. The slum dwellers residing at Juhu are facing a lot of problem as their shelter has been taken away from them. Last month, BMC demolished the illegal settlements, which have forced the slum dwellers to now live on the footpaths outside the buildings. Although the slum dwellers who possessed the necessary documents were shifted to Mankhurd by BMC. However amongst all of them, 93 slums were considered illegal by BMC and not allotted any rehabilitation. However the residents claim that they have been residing here for the last 30 years and despite they having the mandatory documents like ration card & electricity bill, BMC declared the slums illegal. They added that BMC’s actions were unjustified as there was also a security office in the area, which was not demolished by BMC. The residents are now living on the footpaths stating that they would not live the place until justice was served. With cameraperson Lahu, Shailendra Upadhaya for NMTV News.
