2016-12-09Seeking justice for dead teen, dad on hunger strike - Times of India
Seeking justice for dead teen, dad on hunger strikeSeeking justice for dead teen, dad on hunger strikePradeep Gupta | TNN | Updated: Dec 10, 2016, 12.04 AM IST Ulhasnagar: Since the past five days, Ulhasnagar resident Sharif Shaikh (46) has been on a hu-nger strike outside the deputy commissioner of police's office, seeking 'justice' for his dead son. Thirteen-year-old Irfan died in a private hospital following complications arising out a congenital heart problem on October 29. Sharif's contention is that the hospital didn't operate on his son because of failure to arrange cash. "The hospital got Rs 1.2 lakh under the government's Rajiv Gandhi Arogya Yojana, but didn't operate on my son because they wanted us to pay Rs 40,000 more," claimed a relative. The hospital trustee termed the allegations baseless. While the family has sought police action, rules demand that police first seek medical opinion from state-run JJ Hospital. Upset with no action for over a month, Sharif went on a hunger strike on December 5. DCP Sunil Bhardwaj, Ulhasnagar division, said, "As this is a medical negligence case, we need a doctor's opinion before taking any action." The police have sent three reminders to JJ Hospital asking it to form an inquiry committee. "We expect a panel to be set up within a fortnight," he added. Irfan, who was the eldest of Sharif's five children, had a leaking heart valve that needed urgent attention, but the family didn't have the money. Sharif, a labourer, told TOI that he learnt about the government's free treatment scheme at a medical camp. "As the camp organizer assured us that we would get help in four days, we filled up the forms and admitted Irfan at Satya Sai Platinum hospital in Ulhasnagar on October 4," he said. On October 14, Sharif enquired with the doctor if he had received the money under the sch-eme, but didn't get a proper reply. He then called the Yojana's customer care number and learned that Rs 12 lakh had been san-ctioned to the hospital. "When I confronted the hospital, they admitted that they had got the money, but said it wasn't enough to get a good quality valve. They wanted me to pay Rs 40,000 more for a better valve," said Sharif. At the family's behest, Shiv Sena leader Rajendra Chaudhari spoke to the hospital authorities, but in vain. "Without timely medical treatment, my son died on October 29," said Sharif. Babu Puri, a trustee of hospital, said, "The allegations are baseless. Irfan was also suffering from jaundice and doctors felt they should first treat his liver before conducting the heart surgery. But his health suddenly started worsening and he died after vomiting." Puri said the allegation about seeking Rs 40,000 is wrong. "We had kept him for over 20 days without charging a single paise," he added.

2016-12-08Ulhasnagar civic chief's battle cry against tax defaulters: No Tax, No Civic Amenity - Hindustan Times
Ulhasnagar civic chief's battle cry against tax defaulters: No Tax, No Civic Amenity mumbai Updated: Dec 08, 2016 16:38 IST Padmja Sinha Hindustan Times In a first-of-its-kind move, the Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation (UMC) chief Rakendra Nimbalkar issued diktat to all the corporators stating No Tax, No Civic Amenity. The decision was taken in the wake of poor tax collection despite issuing several reminders to the defaulters. Sources claimed the civic chief has vouched not to revoke the diktat despite facing opposition form the corporators. Speaking to HT, Nimbalkar said, Though the government has extended the deadline for accepting demonetised notes for tax payment till 15th December 2016, defaulters have taken it lightly. I was forced to issue the diktat that all civic works like sewerage, water, roads, paver blocks and others would not be undertaken until defaulters don't pay at least 60% of their dues. He added that neither the requests nor the notices have coaxed defaulters to pay up, so the diktat was issued to the corpoartors. Funds allotted to ward offices are used for civic works of a particular locality. But if taxes aren't paid, then no work will be undertaken. It wasn't until I took stock of the situation that I realised how much recovery was pending, said Nimbalkar. Statics available with the UMC revealed that of the 78 wards in Ulhasnagar, only a handful have cleared 50% dues. Initially, the corporators were reluctant. But they understood the importance of recovering dues, as it is need to provide people with civic amenities. With the corporation already struggling, non-payment of dues is burdening it further, Nimbalkar said.

(HT File Photo) Sewer lines in four municipal corporations and councils along the Ulhas river will be connected to sewage treatment plants (STP), the Maharashtra government told the National Green Tribunal (NGT) on December 2. The river supplies potable water to Badlapur, Navi Mumbai, Ambernath, Ulhasnagar, and many villages on its banks, which stretch from Karjat to Kalyan. The diversion of sewage drains from the river to STPs is a short-term measure suggested in the affidavit filed before the tribunal last month, in response to an order which sought an action plan that would prevent the river from being polluted. Currently, the river is heavily polluted with untreated domestic and industrial effluents from Kalyan-Dombivli, Ambernath, Ulhasnagar, and Kulgaon-Badlapur. Only 10% of the 216 million litres a day (MLD) sewage generated daily by the Kalyan-Dombivli Municipal Corporation (KDMC) is treated before it is released into the river. Although existing STPs can treat 123 MLD, only 22 MLD is treated. Worse still, all of the 80 MLD sewage generated by the Ulhasnagar municipal corporation is discharged without being treated. About 40% — 5MLD of 18MLD – from the Kulgaon-Badlapur Municipal Council gets treated. Although 60% of the sewage from the Ambernath Municipal Corporation goes through the STP, the affidavit states that there is an additional 30% area under the civic body’s jurisdiction that needs an underground sewage facility. The existing sewage network too is inadequate and needs to be revamped. “At least the state is beginning with short-term measures. But we would like to see the work speed up,” said petitioner Stalin D of non-government organisation Vanashakti. In 2013, Vanashakti moved the tribunal to direct the MPCB to shut all polluting industries discharging untreated effluents into the Ulhas river. Based on monitoring conducted in May 2014 and earlier, an interim report by the National Institute of Oceanography concluded that the upper and middle zones of the Ulhas estuary have been degraded, owing to a release of domestic and industrial effluents. It added that such conditions are not conducive to diverse aquatic fauna. The Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation has started the tendering process to lay down disposal lines at Dombivli and Ambernath for Rs241 crore, as per the recommendations of the National Institute of Oceanography. This long-term measure has a time frame of three years. “The Ulhas river is rapidly deteriorating, but corporations have done little to show they are serious about protecting this last fresh water river,” said Stalin D. Highly-polluted river The Ulhas river supplies potable water to Badlapur, Navi Mumbai, Ambernath, Ulhasnagar, and many villages on the river boundary starting from Karjat to Kalyan. The river flows through the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR), which has a daily water requirement close to 10,657 million litres. It can also fulfil the water requirement of Thane district through which it flows. The river is heavily polluted by discharge of untreated effluents from various industries and domestic sewage from Ambernath, Dombivali, and Ulhasnagar Sample tests carried out by reputed organisations have found biochemical oxygen demand and chemical oxygen demand as high as 20 times permissible limits.

2016-12-01Western Railways batsman Sagar Mishra hits six sixes in an over ... - Times of India
Western Railways batsman Sagar Mishra hits six sixes in an over Gaurav Gupta | TNN | Updated: Dec 1, 2016, 10.09 AM IST MUMBAI: So hard did Sagar Mishra find life as a budding cricketer in Ulhasnagar that he contemplated quitting the sport. Income had been meagre for his family that earned through a local grocery store but his parents, to their credit, never allowed money to become a hindrance. On Wednesday, the 23-year-old must've thanked the almighty that he stuck to the sport. Sent into bat at No.4 for Western Railway on Day Two of their Times Shield 'B' Division game against RCF, Sagar tore into offspinner Tushar Kumare, smashing him for six towering sixes in an over to create a tournament record. In fact, the left-hander, who made his First Class debut for Railways against Mumbai at the Wankhede last year, blasted nine sixes off the final 11 balls that he faced. When he began his onslaught, the youngster was on 51 off 35 balls. By the time he was done, he had blitzed his way to a 46-ball 91. "I'm an allrounder. I bat at five and six, which means that I have to bat with the tail. I needed to develop my game accordingly, because the opponents tend to spread the field. I needed to learn how to clear the field," Sagar told TOI, moments after his stunning feat. Explaining his hurricane innings, he said: "I was promoted to No.4, because their left-arm spinner was bowling well and I was sent to up the scoring rate. I just played normally, according to the situation. My only regret is that I couldn't complete my hundred." He had a problem finishing the job though. "After the fifth six, I suffered a severe cramp in my leg and had to lie down on the ground and drink some lemonade. Kumare bowled the final ball of that over on my legs, but I managed to smash him over deep mid-wicket for a six," he explained. Even the bewildered bowler was forced to say 'well played'. "His stroke-play was superb. For me, his best six was the one he hit off the back-foot over mid-off. "It's a difficult shot to hit. He bowls good left-arm spin, and is a good fielder too. He's a good prospect for the Railways," complimented Western Railway coach Dinesh Lad. Recounting his sixes, Mishra said: "The first was straight over the sight screen, the next over mid off the backfoot, then third was over long on, the fourth over deep mid-wicket, the fifth went down the ground and the last was a slog sweep over deep mid wicket." "It's a dream come true. I remember watching Yuvraj Singh's six sixes in an over on TV nine years back. Never did I imagine that I'd do something similar," said Mishra. The youngster is hopeful that his feat would be noticed by the Railways selectors. In his only game for the Railways senior team, Mishra had scored 46 and taken the crucial wickets of Suryakumar Yadav and Akhil Herwadkar. "I've done well for them in the U-23 tournament, picking up 23 wickets in seven matches last season, and 15 in four so far this time. Hopefully, I'll get an opportunity to play in the Ranji Trophy again," he said. His explosive effort on Wednesday, in fact, may just attract the attention of a few IPL franchises too.
