“It is high time you stopped living in illegal structures or constructing illegal houses. Think of the next generation, your children, and decide what course you want them to follow. I will of course demolish the illegal structures,” said Mundhe, while meeting residents under his walk with the commissioner initiative on Saturday.
He said, “I can see you here with smart phones for which you have spent thousands of rupees. Why don’t you build private toilets in your houses for which we are providing financial assistance?
Later speaking to mediapersons, Mundhe said, “There has been improvement in cleanliness here but there are not many private toilets in the shanties. We will hold a special twoday camp from Sunday for the residents.”
He said that they can submit an application at the camp for the toilet and the civic body will provide Rs17,000 from the government scheme for the construction of private toilets.
Mundhe said, “There are public taps here and hence I have asked the residents to apply for individual water connection. They need only two documents — Aaadhar card and a receipt confirming that their shanty has been built before 2000.”
