While MCGM might be patting its back on the crores of revenue collected in its Clean Up Marshall drive, it is being said that these Clean Up Marshalls are more like hooliogans in uniforms. It was few days ago that MCGM Additional Commissioner R A Rajeev had boosted about their Clean Up Marshall drive stating that in the last six months they were able to collect over a a crore. But looking at this chaos ahead of the Shivaji terminus one would know how much the locals are frustrated with these Clean up Marshalls. They allege that most of the marshals are street side hooligans. The youngsters appointed as the Clean Up Marshall are becoming infamous for petrifying the locals. The locals state that MCGM should first concentrate on cleaning the public toilets and roads and then speak about the public. Some voiced that instead of collecting fine, MCGM should ask the person to clean up himself if he spits on the road and conflicts would not be raised. While it is right on the part of the corporation to take action against those who dirty the city but it should bring about some changes in its Clean Up Marshall drive so that the tax paying citizens are not harassed by them.
