Demand to issue notices for absent officials


Nashik Road : A meeting of the divisional prabhag committee was held under its chairperson Suman Satbhai at NMC divisional office. Corporators slammed officials over encroachment, potholes on roads, non-functioning street lights and irregular water supply. A demand was made to issue notices to those officials who remained absent for the meeting.

Encroachment by kiosk owners and shop keepers is rising in the area and there is a traffic problem due to illegal parking of vehicles. As there is no competent officer at Nashik Road, all this is happening. Make it clear whether kiosks are legal or illegal. Though Nashik Road division received a fund of Rs. 4 crore to repair roads, roads have not repaired, stated Sangita Gaikwad.

Register complaints against absent officials with the Municipal Commissioner. Only 18 work proposals were sent in two months from Nashik Road division. This showed the mentality of officials, said Prashant Dive.

Citizens are facing inconvenience due to spread of dengue and malaria, non-functioning street lights, water problem and potholes on roads. Rs. 53 lakh was given to contractor for fogging. Officials of 13 departments out of total 16 departments remained absent. Issue notices to absent officials, demanded Suryakant Lavate.
