shivaji-chowk-2The Shivaji Chowk situated at Panvel is a live example of how the Panvel Municipal Council has pathetically maintained the historical monument. The monument and its surroundings are crying for the authorities’ attention. A look at the Shivaji Chowk at Panvel shows that while Chattrapati Shivaji Maharaj is an icon and hero for most, looks like the Panvel Municipal Council has been neglecting the popular Shivaji Chowk. Surrounded with garbage and jungles of grass, the once shining sculpture is crying for the authorities’ attention which even lacks a nameplate. There are no proper lights, fountain is for namesake. Look at this visual now. Reliable sources reveal that the organization which is supposed to look after the chowk is illegally supplying the water and electricity to a nearby Chinese stall. Panvel Municipal Council has spent lakhs of rupees in its installation. The concerns were however, underplayed by Panvel Municipal Council President Prashant Thakur who does not think there has been any negligence on their part. And interestingly, he showed concern on the illegal supply of water and stated that enquiry would be done. With cameraperson Dyaneshwar Mali, Sudhir Sharma for NMTV News.
