The poor maintenance of a civic garden near mini sea-shore in Vashi has irked the residents and the daily joggers. The mess seen at the garden has forced residents to question NMMC about the funds allocated for maintenance of gardens. The poor maintenance of the greenery at mini sea shore is pointing a finger at the much-talked initiative of private enterprises in looking after the civic gardens. Started on a good note, the merger of private enterprises and the NMMC civic department is reported to have fizzled out. However, residents are complaining about the litter, dried plants scattered around the garden, the un-kempt jogger’s path and non-functional play things. Frequented by joggers and evening strollers, the absolute neglect shown by civic officials towards the green zone has alarmed them. The sorry state of civic gardens is not restricted to one particular area. Even the garden adopted by private firms in return of free publicity is in a bad state. Barring the publicity factor, the condition of the gardens has only deteriorated further. With cameraperson Dyaneshwar Mali, Shailendra Upadhyay for NMTV News.
