NMMC WARD OFFICE VOICES HELPLESSNESS OVER ILLEGAL HAWKERS MENACE AT NERUL RAILWAY STATION

nerul-hawkersThe spot outside Nerul station is become problematic due to hawkers who have flanked on the footpath outside the railway station. Many citizens complained about the menace caused due to these hawkers as well as the migrants. The entire stretch outside Nerul station east has taken a filthy look with hawkers illegally sitting outside the station. According to the citizens, the entire footpath is being covered by these hawkers due to which it becomes very difficult for the pedestrians to walk on the footpath. The hawkers have even taken over the staircase leading of platforms. Besides these hawkers, people who have migrated from different places have occupied the footpath. They stay in a small slum beside the railway station. They litter the place and carry out their daily activity here. Residents have expressed their anger over the authorities for not taking any action. We visited the Nerul ward office then where NMMC Deputy Municipal Commissioner Namdeo Jadhav seemed unperturbed and gave a very vague answer of taking action the very next day. The ward officer Sunil Thakur interestingly stated that they evacuated the place everyday but the hawkers found their way back. He also informed about stationing a security guard at this place to avoid the encroachment. With Kala Jadhav, Vrushali Chitre for NMTV news.
