Navi Mumbai : After the Kalbadevi Mumbai tragedy in which two fire personnel died, NMMC Opposition Vijay Chougule paid a visit to the Vashi Fire Brigade.
This is Vijay Chougule’s first official visit as Leader of Opposition. Giving its first blow to NCP, Vijay Chougule questioned why a multi purpose center is being built at the Vashi Fire Brigade.
It may be noted that the NCP led NMMC has approved the project of converting the Vashi Fire Brigade into a multi purpose center, thereby commercializing it. Former Mayor Sagar Naik had inaugurated the project.
Vijay Chougule criticized the apathy shown towards fire officers and the condition of the fire brigade. He said that he will challenge the decision of making a multi purpose center at the Vashi Fire Brigade both with the Urban Development Dept. and then if need be then will also move to court.
This is Vijay Chougule’s first salvo at NCP that now forms the ruling front in NMMC in alliance with the Congress.
