NMMC APATHY ONCE AGAIN EXPOSED AS NERUL GARDEN REELS UNDER PATHETIC CONDITION

garden-2A garden situated at Nerul is losing its charm with NMMC too turning a blind eye to it. Instead of a green plush environment, this garden at Nerul is quiet the opposite with broken lights and scattered garbage. Many a time couples are found wandering about who conducting offensive acts. Kids who come to play in the garden complained that the couples do not allow them to play as the kids disturb them. Shockingly, some of the students who come to study in the garden alleged that anti-social activities are carried out in the night here. With lights not working, the light poles have open electric wires lying about. This garden once had a beautiful fountain & a pond but today the fountain has not water and the water pond has become so unclean that it has turned green and even green snakes are seen moving about in the water. In the last Standing Committee meeting, Chairman Sandeep Naik too brought about the pathetic condition of gardens in the city and requested DMC Sinarkar – the officer in charge of gardens to look into this apathy of affairs. Every year lakhs of funds are allotted for beautification works to NMMC, but unfortunately many a times these funds are used to fill some alleged officials’ coffers while the people have to face the brunt of it.
