URBAN HAAT IS READY BUT AWAITS MINISTERS TO GET READY TO INAUGURATE IT

urban-haat1The much-acclaimed Urban Haat project by City and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO), modelled on the lines of New Delhi’s popular hotspot Delhi Haat, is ready. Unfortunately, even though the landmark project is ready, ministers and senior officers of the Maharashtra government are not. As per CIDCO officers, the Urban Haat project has finally been completed, albeit a little late but is now awaiting a formal inauguration. After 26/11 terror strikes, there was a major reshuffle in the state cabinet with the Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister resigning and Ashok Chavan taking over the reins of the Congress-NCP led DF government. Former Joint Managing Director Deepak Kapoor, who had played a key role in the planning and execution of the project, was transferred to the state transport department as the Commissioner few weeks back. According to sources, the newly-appointed Joint Managing Director S D Shinde is presently in Nagpur attending the winter assembly session and is yet to take any decision in this regard. With most ministers and officials away, CIDCO officials are now awaiting their return only after which a decision on the inauguration of the Urban Haat will be taken. Bureau report NMTV
