He informed that the proposal of rebuilding the houses of the PAPs has been sent to the Chief Minister and they would try to get it approved as soon as possible. Informing about the other works being done by them, he informed that very soon an Agri-Koli Bhavan would be constructed for the locals of the area and that a 2000 meter plot has been allotted for the building of temples. Other projects being carried out by CIDCO is the flyover from Karawe to Seawoods and the Vashi Exhibition Centre.

Speaking to NMTV News, an ired Namdeo Bhagat stated that the names of the individuals who had protested against him were sent to State Congress President Manikrao Thakre. He further refuted all allegations of not working effectively as a CIDCO Director.
