The Standing Committee Chairman Vijay Chougule got all the nine proposals on the agenda of the Standing Committee approved unanimously without a single word of debate, even as all the opposition members continued to shout slogans and protest against the high handed conduct of the meeting by the chairman. Navi Mumbai News Special Correspondent from NMMC Vishwarath Nayar reports that the opposition expressed reluctance to accept the administration explanation about the additional construction work in the NMMC hospital by Hiranandani Hospital care Pvt. Ltd. Town Planning officer Habde explained that the work of construction in munciple property required no commencement or occupancy certificate as per section 44 of the MRTP Act and the work being done by Hiranandani for the 20,000 sq ft additional FSI was within the permissible limits. The Chairman refused to allow reply for an inconsequent and irrelevant query raised by Vitthal more, as the who would be responsible in case of a mishap of the construction site, which obviously would be governed by the Indian Penal Code and code of criminal procedure. However, the chairman assured to visit the hospital and physically inspect the work along with the standing Committee members this week and take necessary action to ensure fair play in the said work.
