Gang of five attacks Airoil woman corporator, her 11-year-old son Wednesday, 22 October 2014 - 5:50am IST | Agency: DNA Pranab Jyoti Bhuyan 3Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit A woman NCP corporator from Airoli and her 11-year-old son were attacked on Tuesday by a gang of three women and two gun-toting men. Aparna Gavte, who is representing Digha ward for the second time, suffered injuries and is admitted to a hospital. The motive for the crime could not be ascertained immediately, said the police. Aparna and her son were attacked when they had gone to a shop in Airoli on the occasion of Dhanteras, considered an auspicious day marked with purchase of gold and other items. As they got out of their car around 12.45, the gang charged at them. "Seeing his mother getting assaulted, our son tried to stop the goons. But he too was beaten up by the women. Scared, he ran into the shopping outlet," said Aparna's husband Navin Gavte, who is also an NCP corporator. "The gunmen did not allow our driver to came out of the car. They beat him up and snatched his mobile phone and the car's key at gunpoint. They also asked for his wallet, but he did not gave it to them," Gavte said. As people gathered at the spot, the gang tried to flee in an auto rickshaw. However, passersby nabbed one woman, later identified as 29-year-old Ulhasnagar resident Anita Barati, and handed over her to the police. Shahaji Umap, DCP (zone I), said, "We have registered case under section 397 (robbery) of the Indian Penal Code and sections 3 and 25 of Indian Arms Act. It is a serious case. We will arrest the other culprits soon and find out the motive for the attack." Aparna suffered severe injuries to her face, eyes and chest. She was first taken to the NMMC Hospital. She is currently recuperating in the ICU of a private hospital in Vashi. Gavte said this was the third attack on his family. "I was attacked and my car was burnt down last year by some unidentified people. My father was killed when I was a child. I and my family have been facing threats for years now." Gavte added, "I have not been able to understand why these people attacked my wife. Probably, they came looking for me, but attacked her as I was not in the car. I was given police protection last year which was discontinued after four months. I have been asking for security from the police since then."   3Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Arms ActattackFamilyNMMCrobbery case

At the end of counting Sunday, only 16 (out of 276) were declared elected, all from the major parties. Among the winners, 10 belong to the  BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) while five are from the Congress and one from the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP). Though the Shiv Sena, the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena and some other smaller parties nominated women candidates, they failed at the hustings. The BJP’s winning women brigade includes Pankaja Munde, the daughter of the late union minister Gopinath Munde, who won the Parli constituency and Madhuri Misal from Parvati seat. Two BJP newcomers earned the tag of ‘giant killers’ in Mumbai and Navi Mumbai. Vidya Thakur defeated Shiv Sena senior leader Subhash Desai from Goregaon, Mumbai and Manda Mhatre trounced NCP leader and former minister Ganesh Naik in Belapur, Navi Mumbai. Besides, state BJP women’s wing chief Manisha Chaudhari won in Dahisar and Bharti Lavhekar emerged victorious in Versova, both in Mumbai. Other winning BJP candidates are Sangeeta Thombre (Kaij), Medha Kulkarni (Kothrud), Monika Rajale (Shevgaon) and Snehalata Kolhe (Kopargaon). From the Congress, former minister Varsha Gaikwad bagged the critical Dharavi seat in the heart of Mumbai. Newcomer Ameeta Chavan, wife of former chief minister Ashok Chavan won from Bhokar (Nanded), Praniti (Sushilkumar) Shinde from Solapur Central, Yashomati Thakur from Teosa and Nirmala Gavit from Igatpuri. NCP’s Jyoti Kalani won from Ulhasnagar in Thane district. In the Beed Lok Sabha by-election, BJP’s Pritam Munde, the daughter of the late union minister, defeated her nearest Congress rival and Ashok S. Patil by a margin of over 696,321 votes, considered the highest in recent years.

2014-10-21Maharashtra Assembly gets 16 women this time, high
Maharashtra Assembly gets 16 women this time, highest since 1985 Tuesday, 21 October 2014 - 5:40am IST | Agency: DNA Kanchan Srivastava 5Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Yashomati Thakur (Cong) & Manda Mhatre (BJP) Sixteen women are set to be a part of the 13th Maharashtra Assembly, about 5.5 per cent of the the 288-member house. This is highest since 1985 polls when an equal number of women were sent Vidhan Bhavan. There were 257 women in the fray in October 15 polls among 4,119 candidates. The number of women legislators in 2004 and 1999 were just 12, while the figure dropped to 11 in 2009. Maharashtra, known for its women empowerment movements since the time of Mahatma Phule and Babasaheb Ambedkar, has never seen more than 19 women MLAs (1980). Not a single woman was elected in 1972 polls, says the statistics of Election Commission of India. BJP leads the pack with 10 candidates getting elected out of 18 nominees. NCP had fielded 20 women and only one emerged victorious. The Congress had given tickets to 27 women of whom five won. Six among them are from Mumbai and Thane. Dr Bharti Lavekar (Versova), Vidya Thakur (Goregaon), Manisha Chaudhary (Dahisar) and Manda Mhatre are from the BJP and have won the assembly polls for the first time. While Dr Lavekar defeated Congress' veteran Baldev Khosa by more than 25,000 votes, Manda Mhatre defeated NCP stalwart Ganesh Naik who was also a guardian minister of the district Raigad, by over 1,400 votes. Vidya Thakur, the ex-deputy mayor of BMC and north Indian face, defeated Sena strongman Subhash Desai in Goregaon by more than 5,000 votes. Khosa, Desai and Naik were representing the constituencies for past many years. Congress's Varsha Gaikwad, who was the minister for women and child development in the previous government, won from Dharavi for the third time even though her male counterparts in neighbouring constituencies lost. Jyoti Kalani (Ulhasnagar) is the only woman winner from the NCP. Kalani defeated his closest rival and sitting MLA Kumar Ailani who couldn't retain the seat even when BJP had its best show this time. Other Congress winners are Nirmala Gavit (Igatpuri), Parniti shinde (Solapur city central), Yashomati Thakur (Teosa) and Ameeta Chavan (Bhokar). While former three were members of the outgoing assembly, Chavan, wife of ex-CM Ashok Chavan, contested for the first time this year. BJP's list includes Pankaja Munde from Parli, Madhuri Misal from Parvati, Snehlata Kolhe from Kopargaon, Medha Kulkarni from Kothrud, Devyani Farande from Nashik central, Seema Hiray from Nashik west and Monika Rajale Sehvgaon.

Of the 18 newly-elected MLAs, two of them are women. BJP's Manda Mhatre won the assembly polls from Belapur constituency and NCP's Jyoti Kalani won the Ulhasnagar seat. In the last assembly, there was not a single woman representative in the entire district. "Now, it is the responsibility of the two female MLAs from the district to address women-related issues on a priority basis. They must stress on the 33% reservation for women in the state legislative assembly," said political analyst and an associate with the University of Mumbai, Aruna Pendse. In Thane, this year, 13 women candidates were in the fray for the assembly polls. Out of these, six were nominated by the political parties, while the others contested as Independents. Surprisingly, Shiv Sena is the only party which had not nominated a single woman candidate in Thane region for the 18 assembly seats. Congress had nominated two women candidates, while Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), BJP, NCP and Bahujan Samaj Party had fielded one candidate each in the district. However, political parties cutting across all party lines are on the same page when it comes to nominating female candidates for the assembly polls. "During the proceedings of the assembly session, MLAs do take up social issues of their constituencies and state. Nominating and ensuring that women are elected to the assembly is not enough to resolve their issues. It is more of a social issue. The society, along with the public representatives, state administration and law enforcing agency, must work together for the empowerment of women,'' a political leader said.

The popular catch line 'Time for Change, Time for BJP' and the inherent ambitions of the saffron cadre 'Shatparatishat BJP' turned true, almost. The party, which was till-date known to piggy-back on the Sena, emerged victorious in seven of the 17 seats it contested garnering a fantastic 28% of the votes across the district. Lotus (BJP's symbol) clearly appeared to be blooming in the area where it had near-negligible presence such as Murbad, Bhiwandi (west), Belapur and Mira-Bhayander assembly constituencies. Ironically, the party tasted defeat in the dominant Hindutva pockets of Ulhasnagar and Bhiwandi (rural) constituencies. "The biggest triumph for the BJP was wrestling the Thane assembly constituency from Sena. The party chief Uddhav Thackeray had publicly declared that Thane was the key reason for breaking off the 25-year-old alliance with the BJP. Uddhav had personally ensured that internal bickering within the Sena from this constituency will not affect the party's winning prospects," said Thane-based political observers. "However, the party appears to have failed to sense the mood of the voters who refused to take them for granted by nominating a Congress defector from here," they added. BJP nominee from Thane assembly, Sanjay Kelkar, clearly prevailed over the voters' mindspace who chose him over Ravi Phatak of Sena. NCP suffered a jolt in the Thane assembly constituency where senior leader Vasant Davkhare's son Niranjan lost to Kelkar. Winning the Belapur assembly seat was another moment of triumph for the BJP as the cosmopolitan voters residing in the enclaves at Palm Beach Road, Sanpada, Vashi, among others, voted out Ganesh Naik and also rejected Sena nominee Vijay Nahata. "Sena was saved another embarrassment in the Ovala-Majiwada assembly seat where its candidate Pratap Sarnaik was trailing BJP's Sanjay Pandey in the initial rounds. Though Sarnaik won, there was a lot of anxiety in the ranks and the mood of the party workers was sombre till the results were declared," a party activist said. MNS and Congress seem to have lost it all in Thane as not a single of their nominees was elected. MNS failed to retain its clout in Kalyan (rural) and Kalyan (west) assembly constituencies, which were wrested by Sena and BJP, respectively.

Nearly 13,36,301 female voters from 18 assembly constituencies from Thane district voted of the total 27,19,076 women on the rolls. Bhiwandi rural saw the highest percentage of female voter turnout Whereas Ulhasnagar constituency registered low patronage among female voters. It may be noted that there was rise in number of new female voters registered compared to LS polls in Thane. 1,60,137 new female voters were added to the rolls this time taking the number from 25,58,939 during LS to 2719076 during assembly polls this year of which 12,02,000 voted in LS and 13,36,301 voted for assembly polls.

Nigerian took money from people by luring them with job in UK Friday, 17 October 2014 - 6:20am IST | Agency: DNA DNA Correspondent 1Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of the Mumbai crime branch arrested a Nigerian national, an alleged kingpin of an international job racket which duped hundreds of aspirants from various states by promising them jobs in the United Kingdom. According to EOW officials, the accused, arrested from Nallasopara (East) on October 13, has been identified as John Chima alias Peter Buckingham, 36, who has been living in India on a business Visa for the past one year. Officials said Chima, a Nigerian national would pose as a diplomat from the UK embassy and lure job seekers by posting advertisements of vacancies on a marketing website with lucrative salary. He would then make the victims deposit Visa and travelling fee in a bank account. Once the deposit was made, he would withdraw the money in different cities. Investigators believe that the gang has duped hundreds of people in crores. "The accused would post ads of jobs in London, UK on marketing websites and would ask prospective victims to send their biodata. To gain victims' trust, the accused would send them job confirmation and appointment letters," said an EOW officer, adding, "He would offer salaries over Rs1 lakh to the victim." During the investigation, officials unearthed that the bank accounts where the victims were asked to deposit money were opened using documents of some other person obtained by Chima on false pretexts. The phone numbers used were also in the name of slum dwellers who had no idea about the crime. The police have so far come across three nationalized bank accounts in Hyderabad, Tamil Nadu and Ulhasnagar. The police have seized two passports, a laptop, a mini laptop pen drive and three cell phones from the accused's house. The police have booked Chima for cheating, forgery, criminal conspiracy and are looking for his accomplices. 1Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit undefinedEconomic Offences Wing (EOW)jobsjob racketNigerianUnited Kingdomwebsites

The turnout of this segment in the entire district was recorded at 51 out of 143. In contrast, Airoli assembly seat had 100% turnout of transgender voters with 19 of 19. Many allege that their classification should be in the 'T' category (for transgender as was suggested by the central government) instead of them being included as the 'other' gender. The lone transgender voter here in the city cast the ballot from Ovala-Majiwada. Six transgender voters were listed in the electoral roll of Thane city but nobody turned up. Similarly, the Kopri-Panchpakhadi roll also drew a blank in the transgender category. Ulhasnagar and Ambernath roll list included 24 and 15 transgender voters, respectively, but the turnout was 12 in each. The figure at Kalyan East, which has the highest number of third gender voters, was also dimal with only 7 turning up to vote. Kalyan Rural drew blank despite having 12 such voters in the roll. "We have not been given the status of 'T' for transgender despite the central government decision. The election commission should carve out a separate column after M and F," said a transgender voter. An election commission official said, "We have not received any instruction to convert the 'other' category into 'T'. It may be done the next time." In the Lok Sabha polls, all 16 transgender voters from Airoli assembly segment voted for Thane constituency during their first ever appearance to exercise their democratic rights. A total of 67 voted across the district during the Lok Sabha polls.

2014-10-16Wind in BJP sails in Maharashtra: exit polls - Hin
Wind in BJP sails in Maharashtra: exit polls HT Correspondent, Hindustan Times  Mumbai, October 16, 2014 First Published: 01:50 IST(16/10/2014) | Last Updated: 17:25 IST(16/10/2014) Email print Font Size A | A+ | A- Subscribe Breaking News Alert Comments In what seems a continuation of the trend in the Lok Sabha polls, voters across Maharashtra, including in Mumbai, turned out in considerable numbers and exit polls predict the BJP will benefit big. All the exit polls put the BJP close to, or crossing the magic figure of 145, for a majority in the 288-member Assembly. The Shiv Sena, which broke with the BJP 48 hours before the deadline for filing nominations, was placed a distant second, and the Congress and the NCP, which ruled the state for the 15 years, brought up the rear in all the exit polls.  The votes will be counted on Sunday and political circles expect small margins could decide the outcome in many seats, given the multi-cornered contest. Wednesday’s turnout of 63.4% was the same as that in 2004. The highest was in 1995 (71.7%), when the Shiv Sena-BJP formed the first non-Congress government. The “Modi magic” will have worked this time too if the exit polls prove correct. While ‘Today’s Chanakya’, which was spot-on in the Lok Sabha polls, predicted an absolute majority for the BJP with 151 seats (± 9), the exit polls by ABP News-AC Nielsen, Times Now-C-Voter and India Today-Cicero gave the BJP 124 to 144 seats. It they turn out correct, the BJP could form the government on its own or with the help of some smaller parties and independents. The Shiv Sena, which challenged Modi directly, seems to be doing better than in 2009, but not well enough to emerge the largest party. The exit polls gave it 56 to 77 seats. The split in the Congress-NCP alliance could affect both the parties badly. Exit polls showed Congress could win 27 to 43 seats, while they gave the NCP  28 to 36 seats. Raj Thackeray’s MNS trailed with 3 to 12 seats. “If the exit polls are right, then we can say that the Modi factor did work again,” said political analyst B Venkatesh Kumar. “It could also mean the people wanted to give the BJP a chance and they preferred the development agenda. It may be beginning of a single-party government,” he added. Maharashtra registered 63.40% voting, up from 59.5% in the 2009 Assembly elections and 60.36 % in the Lok Sabha elections six months ago. Mumbai too did better with a 52.43% turnout, up from 46% in 2009 Assembly elections and 51.59% in the May Lok Sabha polls. The turnout was 54.11% in the island city and 50.75% in the suburbs. Karveer constituency in Kolhapur district saw the highest turnout in the state of 84.37%. Ulhasnagar had the lowest of 36.32 %. Polling remained largely peaceful except for stray incidents. In Maoist-affected Gadchiroli, there were two incidents of firing on polling parties. One jawan was injured. Despite the threat to villagers to boycott the polls by left wing extremists, troubled Gadchiroli saw an impressive 72% turnout, up from 68% in 2009.

The voting per cent for the 18 assembly seats in the district was recorded at 50.56% as against 49.2% during the parliamentary elections. Even though the election commission conducted a voters' awareness drive during which they had appealed to citizens to come out in large numbers and exercise their right, the urban pockets received a lukewarm response. In Thane, the voter turnout in the urban constituencies was low in areas like Khopri-Panchpakhadi and Ovala-Majiwada. While in Navi Mumbai, Airoli and Belapur received a low turnout. ''The voting per cent during the Lok Sabha and assembly elections is almost the same. While rural areas witnessed a steady rise in figures, the most alarming figures was received from urban areas where the percentage was just 50,'' said a political observer. However, the common thing between both the elections was that the highest turnout of voters was received in rural areas of Thane district. According to the election department records, the highest poll per cent was recorded at Bhiwandi rural during both the elections. While during the assembly polls the figure stood at 66.24%, the numbers recorded during the parliamentary elections was 65.94%. The lowest voter turnout was recorded at Ulhasnagar with just 38.22%. Even the district election commission officials expressed their helplessness to improve the figures. ''We did our best to reach out to maximum voters. But there was no improvement,'' the official said. Amazon.in : Buy now http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/followceleb.cms?alias=Stay updated on the go with The Times of India’s mobile apps.

Around noon, constable Maruti Jadhav (50) fell unconscious inside a polling booth in the Thane assembly constituency. He was initially taken to the Thane civil hospital, but later shifted to Jupiter Hospital. His condition is now stable. In the second incident, Naresh Jeswani (53), a civic clerk who was deputed as a polling officer at Abdullah Patel High School in Mumbra, complained of uneasiness around 9.30am. He told his colleagues that he had undergone a stomach operation three months ago and was feeling unwell. They rushed him to Kalwa medical hospital, where doctors treated him and suggested he be relieved from further duty. Jeswani was then escorted to his Ulhasnagar home. Jeswani told TOI that the extensive poll-related work in the last few days, along with the October heat, may have taken a toll on his health. "I underwent a stomach operation three months ago and was on a month-long post-surgery leave. I took up the poll duty as I presumed that I had fully recovered and would be able to work like before. However, I were involved in several poll-related activities since Tuesday afternoon, leaving me exhausted. I felt uneasy on Wednesday and was immediately given medical attention. Now, I am well," Jeswani said. A reliever was immediately deployed at the polling booth to ensure work wasn't affected.

Family is yet to be compensatedRELATEDGovt will also have to pay interest at rate of 18% from Sep 2013 till Sep 2014, as it failed to pay until the issue was brought to court's notice. The Bombay High Court directed the Maharashtra government on Tuesday to compensate the victims of the triple blasts of 2011 latest by November 24. The government will also have to pay interest thereon at the rate of 18 per cent, from September 2013 till September 2014, as it failed to pay the blast victims until the issue was brought to the notice of the court. The bench of Justices Abhay Oka and Justice Girish Kulkarni also directed the Maharashtra government to issue, by December, a detailed list of victims of all bomb blast cases and Maoist attacks in the state who have not been paid the compensation as stipulated under a central government scheme. "There was an inordinate delay in releasing compensation. Only after the petition was filed did the state make payments to the next of kin of the victims," the judges said. "A complete neglect on the part of the state government officers is seen. As there is no explanation for the delay, the next of the kin of victims will have to be compensated with interest," the judges said. The court gave this direction while hearing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by a jeweller from Zaveri Bazar, who pleaded that kin of four victims from Thane and Ulhasnagar need to be compensated as soon as possible. Advocate Rahul Kadam said the families of Himmatbhai Gadia, Baburam Das and Bhupatbhai Navadia of Thane and Lalchand Ahuja of Ulhasnagar have not received any compensation till date. There were others too who never got compensated. Kadam also argued before the court that the central government scheme may not have been implemented properly and other blast victims may also not have been compensated. The court agreed with his statement and directed the Secretary for Relief and Rehabilitation to call for necessary data from all districts to ascertain if relief has been extended to all people. A total of 26 people were killed and nearly 130 injured in co-ordinated explosions at Zaveri Bazar, Opera House and Dadar (W) in 2011. In August, the High Court had directed the Thane Collector to pay compensation amount of Rs 3 lakh, announced by the central government, to victims of the triple bomb blasts, within four weeks. The three victims, however, are still to be compensated.

The Bombay High Court on Monday upheld the conviction of former Ulhasnagar MLA Suresh (Pappu) Kalani and three of his accomplices, in a 25-year-old murder case. They had been found guilty by a Thane court on November 29 last year, and were given life sentences for the murder of BJP worker Inder Bhatija in 1990. The murder was allegedly the fallout of long-standing enmity, and the trial was conducted against six accused including Pappu Kalani, 65, Bacchi Pandey, 50, Baba Gabrial, 52, Mohamad Asrat Sheikh, 45, Narendra Ramsinghani and one Richard. While Bacchi, Baba and Mohamad were held guilty of murder under Section 302 of the IPC and conspiracy, Kalani was convicted only for conspiracy under Section 120-B of the IPC. Ramsinghani and Richard were acquitted for want of evidence. Kalani had approached High Court saying there wasn't enough evidence to show that he had conspired with the others. But many witnesses in the case had turned hostile, and those that hadn't were mainly interested witnesses. While rejecting Kalani's contention the division bench of justice S C Dharmadhikari and A K Menon, referring to the sessions court order, said, "The order does not seem to be perverse, this court has applied its mind but does not find the need to interfere with the order." Kamal Bhatija, a brother of both the deceased who is also the prime witness in the case, referring to Kalani told Mirror after Monday's verdict, "That man has haunted my family for the past 25 years. It was only right that the case reach its logical end and finally justice has been served." CASE BACKGROUND In 1990, Maharashtra went to the polls and Pappu Kalani, fighting on a Congress ticket, defeated long-serving BJP MLA Sitaldas Harchandani. On polling day, Ghanshyam Bathija the brother of BJP worker Inder, exposed bogus voting in favour of Kalani. The next day, on February 27, 1990, Ghanshyam was murdered near Pinto Resorts in Ulhasnagar. Ghanshyam's brother Inder, who was an eyewitness, was shot dead a month later on April 27,1990, despite police protection. Kalani was charged with both murders; the case of Ghanshyam's murder is still being heard.

The division bench headed by Justice S.C. Dharmadhikari dismissed their appeal saying it did not find anything perverse in the verdict convicting them of conspiracy and murder of Ghansham Bhatija. The judges opined that the trial court had applied its mind and there was no need to interfere in the verdict given by the sessions court on November 29, 2013. Bacchi Pandey, Baba Gabriel and Mohammed Asrat were the other accused who had filed an appeal challenging the sessions court order that held them guilty of murder and sentenced them to undergo life imprisonment. Kalani was president of Ulhasnagar Municipal Council and MLA of Congress at one time. Later he floated his own party. It may be recalled that Bhatija was murdered in Ulhasnagar on February 27, 1990 near the Pinto Resorts in Ulhasnagar in the district. His brother, Inder Bhatija, who had witnessed his brother being gunned down, was shot dead on April 28, 1990 despite being under police protection. The prosecution claimed that both the murders were a fall-out of a long-standing political and criminal enmities. Advocate Ganesh Gole defending Kalani said, “The remedy of moving to apex court against the high court order was available to our client.” The police filed the chargesheet against six persons, out of whom Dr Narendra Ramsinghani and Richard were acquitted by the trial court and Pandey, Gabriel and Asrat were held guilty of murder and conspiracy. However, Kalani was convicted only for criminal conspiracy and was acquitted from other charges.

Bombay HC asks Maharashtra to compensate triple blasts victims by Nov 24 Last Updated: Tuesday, October 14, 2014 - 22:22 0 Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Mumbai: The Bombay High Court directed Maharashtra state government here on Tuesday to pay compensation to the victims of the triple blasts of 2011 by November 24. The government would also have to pay interest thereon at the rate of 18 per cent from September 2013 till September 2014 since it had failed to pay the compensation to the blast victims until the issue was brought to the notice of the court, the court said. The bench of Justices Abhay Oka and Justice Girish Kulkarni also directed the Maharashtra government to issue a detailed list of victims of all bomb blast cases and Maoist attacks in the state, who have not been paid the compensation as stipulated under a Central Government scheme, by December. "There was an inordinate delay in releasing compensation. Only after the petition was filed, did the state make payments to the next of kin of the victims," the judges said. "A complete neglect on the part of the state government officers is seen. As there is no explanation for the delay, the next of the kin of victims will have to be compensated by paying interest," the judges said. The court gave this direction while hearing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by a jeweller from Zaveri Bazar, who pleaded that kin of four victims from Thane and Ulhasnagar have to be compensated as soon as possible. Advocate Rahul Kadam, said that families of Himmatbhai Gadia, Baburam Das and Bhupatbhai Navadia of Thane and Lalchand Ahuja of Ulhasnagar did not receive compensation till date. There were others too, who never got compensated. Kadam also argued before the court that the central government scheme may not have been implemented properly and other blast victims may not have been compensated. The court also agreed with his statement and directed the Secretary for Relief and Rehabilitation to call for necessary data from all districts to ascertain if relief has been extended to all people. A total of 26 people were killed and about 130 injured in co-ordinated explosions at Zaveri Bazar, Opera House and Dadar (West) in 2011. In August, the High Court had directed the Thane Collector to pay compensation amount of Rs 3 lakh, announced by the central government to victims of the triple bomb blasts, within four weeks. However, four victims are still to be compensated.

13/7 Mumbai blasts: Kin of 3 not compensated as their details unavailable, government tells Bombay High Court Sunday, 12 October 2014 - 6:30am IST | Place: Mumbai | Agency: DNA Urvi Mahajani 2Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit The state on Friday informed the Bombay high court that families of only three 13/7 blast victims, who hailed from other states, were left to be compensated as their details were not available. Secretary, Relief and Rehabilitation, Milind Mhaiskar filed an affidavit on the same.  Advocate general Darius Khambatta informed a division bench of justices Abhay Oka and Girish Kulkarni that the three hailed from Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, and West Bengal. The government had sent letters on September 9 to the respective district collectors of the states concerned, asking for details of the victims' legal heirs and bank accounts. However, the state has not received any reply from the states due to which the compensation could not be disbursed, stated the affidavit. Khambatta requested the court to drop the contempt notice issued to the chief secretary, for failing to file an affidavit, as well as the cost of Rs25,000, which was imposed during the last hearing. The judges dropped the contempt notice but refused to drop the cost saying the same was to be paid to the petitioner Prakash Seth as cost of litigation. The HC had issued contempt notice and imposed a cost of Rs25,000 on government during the hearing on October 7 as it had failed to file an affidavit giving details of people yet to be compensated. The HC was hearing a PIL filed by Thane resident Seth saying four people — Himmatbhai Gadia, Baburam Das and Bhupatbhai Navadia of Thane and Lalchand Ahuja of Ulhasnagar — haven't received the compensation till date. Following the triple bomb blasts on July 13, 2011, at Zaveri Bazar, Dadar, and Opera House, the Union government had issued a circular announcing ex-gratia payment of Rs4 lakh to the families of those killed in the blasts.

"It is ironic that Modi has no time to appoint a full-time defence minister for the country," said Pawar. The NCP chief said around 30,000 people living near the border had left their homes due to the shelling. "At a time he should take stock of the situation at the border, Modi is trying to ensure that the BJP wins more seats in Maharashtra," he added. The veteran leader said "several voices" were giving contradictory statements on the crisis. "Our soldiers are capable of giving an answer to Pakistan," said Pawar. He was campaigning for NCP candidates Jyoti Kalani (Ulhasnagar) and Nilesh Shinde (Kalyan east). The international border in Jammu & Kashmir has witnessed one of the heaviest exchanges of fire in recent times. Article continuesStay updated on the go with The Times of India’s mobile apps.

V. Gangadhar Tweet COMMENTS PRINT Text Size    Kya kya sochte thhe, kya kya ho raha hai! Rajneeti kuch ajeeb cheez nikala! Shiv Sena, udhar se Congress, phir NCP aur dreams of becoming the chief minister. Then earthquakes began to happen, the ‘Modi wave’ threw us out, now I don’t know where I stand. Two political parties in the state became four and each one of them could win the assembly elections and come to power. Of course, money is no problem, I own dozens of very big colleges, including management ones. What use are they to me if they can’t help me to become the CM? Umar ho gaya, too old to do dramabaazi on the streets like those days in the past. The Modi mania is the most annoying. Apna idhar ladte thhe assembly seats ke liye, ae Modi PM ban gaya, woh bhi tulsi jal peeke! Here I am hogging on mutton, chicken, fish and eggs and I am not even CM. Dar lagta hain yaar, anyone can now become the Maharashtra chief minister or what? Woh, Gopinath Munde ki chokri, Pankaja Munde, suddenly CM candidate ban gayi, don’t ask me how! Last week, she came to Mumbai from her hometown Beed, travelled from Ulhasnagar to Ghatkopar by local train and announced it was her first ride in a local. And then she announced that when the BJP comes to power and she becomes the chief minister, she would introduce local trains in Beed district. I felt like laughing, how can you have local trains in Beed district? What will they carry? Beedis? I can’t understand today’s politics, it has so many startling developments. Many of the Modi statements are alarming. We in the NCP have no doubts that having emerged as the ‘prime minister of Gujarat’ he was set to convert our Mumbai into his Ahmedabad. My NCP spies saw with their own eyes hundreds of trucks loaded with fafda chutney, Raipur bhajiya, Surti undhiyon smuggled into snack shops at Ghatkopar, Vile Parle and other Gujarati strongholds to bribe the voters. They also bro­ught to the city strongholds hundreds of Gujarati ‘bens’, highly skilled in mass producing ‘theplas’. The BJP propaganda machine had churned out messages in thousands that ‘dhokla’ is spicier than ‘vada paav’, khakra sweeter than ‘puran poli’ and ‘garba’ way ahead of ‘lavani’. More sin­ister attempts are being made to ‘Ahmedabadise’ Mumbai. Gujar­ati-owned restaurants are switching over to smaller cups and additional saucers among tea-drinkers because Ahmedabadis share a cup of tea among four.  It is a formidable challenge, but the NCP is not scared. We shall use the Ajit Pawar strategy of filling up dry dam sites with...ahem...human water which will drown out the Gujarati invaders.

"It is ironic that Modi has no time to appoint a full-time defence minister for the country," said Pawar. The NCP chief said around 30,000 people living near the border had left their homes due to the shelling. "At a time he should take stock of the situation at the border, Modi is trying to ensure that the BJP wins more seats in Maharashtra," he added. The veteran leader said "several voices" were giving contradictory statements on the crisis. "Our soldiers are capable of giving an answer to Pakistan," said Pawar. He was campaigning for NCP candidates Jyoti Kalani (Ulhasnagar) and Nilesh Shinde (Kalyan east).

In the 2009 assembly elections, the MNS won two seats in Kalyan after party chief Raj Thackeray's arrest, boosting his popularity among local Maharashtrians. But the two are now struggling to retain their seats due to non-performance. In Dombivli, where Brahmin and Agari voters are a major deciding factor, the fight is between BJP MLA Ravindra Chavan and one of the Shiv Sena's youngest candidates in Maharashtra, Dipesh Mahatre, 30. Dombivli city, which is considered an "educated and cultural city" does not have any highly educated candidate; Dipesh has done his HSC. The candidates also have serious criminal cases registered against them. Chavan has 12 cases, NCP's Vikas Mahatre 16 and MNS's Harichandra Patil one criminal case; Dipesh do not have any against him. Political observers said Kalyan West and East are major battlegrounds, where each constituency has five candidates fighting each other. In Kalyan (E), the NCP has fielded educationist Nilesh Shinde, nephew of NCP MLC Jagganath Shinde, against former NCP supporter Ganpat Gaikwad. Like the last election, Gaikwad will again contest as an independent, while the Sena has given a ticket to loyalist Gopal Landge. In Sindhi-dominated Ulhasnagar constituency, BJP's Kumar Ailani is trying his best to retain his seat. Pappu Kalani's wife is contesting this time due to his conviction in a murder case. The Kalanis have the sympathy of Sindhi voters and Pappu Kalani has won elections from jail twice before. This time, the SAI party has joined hands with the Kalanis, increasing Ailani's troubles. In Ambernath city, a Sena stronghold, there is a tough fight between its MLA Balaji Kinikar and BJP's Rajesh Wankhede. Murbad, which is a rural area, will see a fight between BJP's Kishan Kathore and Sena's Waman Mahatre. Kathore, who was an NCP MLA, had recently joined the BJP. BJP MP Kapil Patil is trying his best to ensure a win for the party in the three assembly constituencies in Bhiwandi. The Congress and NCP are hopeful in Muslim-dominated Bhiwandi (E) and Bhiwandi (W). The Samajwadi Party has fielded Farhan Azmi, son of SP's Maharashtra unit chief Abu Azmi, from Bhiwandi (W). In Bhiwandi rural, the fight is between three relatives, two of whom are brothers Shantaram Patil and Dashrath Patil. Shantaram is contesting on a BJP ticket, while Dashrath has been fielded by the MNS. All political parties are eyeing the seats in the extended central suburb as it has become a hot destination for people due to the real estate boom.

The morcha, which was taken out near Borivali Moksh Plaza, saw the MP along with his supporters reaching out to the public over the issue of how there was unnecessary loss of human life. The death toll has been rising steadily over the past few days but the government has stayed mum over it, and was not focusing on such an important issue, he said. "The PM seems to be busier campaigning for his party than giving priority of national security. Our attempt was to remind him of his priorities," said Nirupam. tnn RPI leader abuses Raj at BJP rally RPI leader Jagdish Gaikwad uttered a derogatory term for Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray while talking about his anti-North Indian policy at a BJP rally in Kharghar on Thursday. Gaikwad stated: "Though Raj Thackeray says that he is against North Indians, his lawyer is uttar bharatiya, so is his clothes-ironing man, his bodyguards are also North Indians and also the teacher who teachers his children. So what is he (Raj) talking about, &*#$ *&%%." tnn Borivli cop has voted already! Suresh Chowgule is a happy man. "I have cast my vote," the portly Borivli constable told this correspondent on Wednesday evening at a local tea adda. Stating that policemen have the privilege of casting their ballot before the official date, Chowgule said, "The Election Commission has given us this privilege as we policemen are really busy on polling day." The paper ballot for cops comes in a sealed envelope. After casting the vote, the paper is put in another envelope, which is sealed and sent to the local EC office. Who did Chowgule vote for? "Te naahi saangnaar (That I can't reveal)," he said. tnn Stickers to help increase turnout The RTO will distribute more than 10,000 stickers to cabbies, as part of an election awareness campaign. The stickers on black-and-yellow taxis and Cool Cabs will appeal to citizens to come out in large numbers on polling day. "The objective is to increase voter turnout on October 15.

"I am speaking to people at length and explaining what I have done for them. They tell me their grievances, which I jot down. After I win, I will create personal manifestoes and address the grievances, which will be among my priorities. I will periodically allow my voters to evaluate my achievements and point out what I have lacked in," said Patel. He said the manifestoes will be constituency-specific and not overlap with the party's manifesto. tnn UP guv casts postal ballot Uttar Pradesh governor Ram Naik on Thursday exercised his franchise in the Maharashtra assembly polls through postal ballot.

In the 2009 assembly elections, the MNS won two seats in Kalyan after party chief Raj Thackeray's arrest, boosting his popularity among local Maharashtrians. But the two are now struggling to retain their seats due to non-performance. In Dombivli, where Brahmin and Agari voters are a major deciding factor, the fight is between BJP MLA Ravindra Chavan and one of the Shiv Sena's youngest candidates in Maharashtra, Dipesh Mahatre, 30. Dombivli city, which is considered an "educated and cultural city" does not have any highly educated candidate; Dipesh has done his HSC. The candidates also have serious criminal cases registered against them. Chavan has 12 cases, NCP's Vikas Mahatre 16 and MNS's Harichandra Patil one criminal case; Dipesh do not have any against him. Political observers said Kalyan West and East are major battlegrounds, where each constituency has five candidates fighting each other. In Kalyan (E), the NCP has fielded educationist Nilesh Shinde, nephew of NCP MLC Jagganath Shinde, against former NCP supporter Ganpat Gaikwad. Like the last election, Gaikwad will again contest as an independent, while the Sena has given a ticket to loyalist Gopal Landge. In Sindhi-dominated Ulhasnagar constituency, BJP's Kumar Ailani is trying his best to retain his seat. Pappu Kalani's wife is contesting this time due to his conviction in a murder case. The Kalanis have the sympathy of Sindhi voters and Pappu Kalani has won elections from jail twice before. This time, the SAI party has joined hands with the Kalanis, increasing Ailani's troubles. In Ambernath city, a Sena stronghold, there is a tough fight between its MLA Balaji Kinikar and BJP's Rajesh Wankhede. Murbad, which is a rural area, will see a fight between BJP's Kishan Kathore and Sena's Waman Mahatre. Kathore, who was an NCP MLA, had recently joined the BJP. BJP MP Kapil Patil is trying his best to ensure a win for the party in the three assembly constituencies in Bhiwandi. The Congress and NCP are hopeful in Muslim-dominated Bhiwandi (E) and Bhiwandi (W). The Samajwadi Party has fielded Farhan Azmi, son of SP's Maharashtra unit chief Abu Azmi, from Bhiwandi (W). In Bhiwandi rural, the fight is between three relatives, two of whom are brothers Shantaram Patil and Dashrath Patil. Shantaram is contesting on a BJP ticket, while Dashrath has been fielded by the MNS. All political parties are eyeing the seats in the extended central suburb as it has become a hot destination for people due to the real estate boom.

2011 blasts compensation case: Bombay high court fines Maharashtra government for not following orders Wednesday, 8 October 2014 - 5:30am IST | Agency: DNA DNA Correspondent 5Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit The Bombay high court on Tuesday imposed a cost of Rs25,000 on the state government for failing to comply with court orders passed earlier regarding grant of compensation to 2011 triple blast victims. A division bench of justices Abhay Oka and Girish Kulkarni directed the state to pay the amount by October 13 and posted the hearing of the public interest litigation (PIL) then. The court imposed the cost after the government sought an adjournment for filing an affidavit giving details of the victims compensated and whether any more were remaining to be paid. Chief secretary Swadheen Kshatriya, who was told to remain present in court, also failed to do so on Tuesday. Advocate Rahul Kadam, appearing for the petitioner, Prakash Sheth, said, "The court had specifically kept the matter for hearing post lunch today and directed the chief secretary to remain present. However, when the matter was called out, it was informed that Kshatriya was not there and no affidavit was filed. The court then posted the matter for hearing post court working hours and directed the secretary to remain present, but the situation remained the same even then. Hence, the order was passed." The bench, in its order, observed, "The government is consistently not following court orders. The present matter is (a) very serious one... We want to see if other victims of blast are compensated, but the court has not filed any affidavit to the same. The petitioners have raised a very important issue... this needs to be taken seriously by the government." The directions were given during the hearing of a PIL by a jeweller from Zaveri Bazar, who pleaded that the kin of four victims from Thane and Ulhasnagar be given compensation as soon as possible. Advocate Kadam said the families of Himmatbhai Gadia, Baburam Das and Bhupatbhai Navadia of Thane, and Lalchand Ahuja of Ulhasnagar had not received the compensation till date. There were others too, who had not been given the compensation, he said. A total 26 people were killed and 130-odd injured in the coordinated explosions at Zaveri Bazar, Opera House and Dadar (West). In August, the HC had directed the collector, Thane, to disburse compensation of Rs3 lakh, announced by the central government, to the victims within four weeks. The amount has to be disbursed along with interest from October 18, 2011, the date on which the Centre announced the compensation. The government has made the payments but not filed a compliance report yet. 5Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Bombay high courtState governmentblastcompensationpublic interest litigation (PIL)

The police have intensified the drive against such criminals in the past 10 days and have slapped nearly 149 notices on other criminals based on their past records. The data suggests that as many as 35 criminals have been externed for two years while eight of them are expelled for six months from the Thane police commissionerate - two zones of Thane city, Bhiwandi, Kalyan-Dombivli and Ulhasnagar. A senior cop said that police stations from every zone have details of hardened criminals which are compiled way before the elections. The sleuths are asked to intensify the drive to nab the criminals and produce them for a hearing with the zonal deputy commissioner of police, who then decides to extern the criminals. "There is possibility that hardened criminals may be a threat during the election period. They may even bully voters favouring certain political candidates. Such a drive is undertaken to ensure free and fair elections," said another senior police official.

She attended a public rally for Kumar Ailani, the BJP candidate in Ulhasnagar, then took the train to Ghatkopar to attend party candidate Ram Kadam's rally. Munde, who hails from Beed district, said she was taking a local train for the first time. She said once there is a BJP government in the state, she will try to introduce local trains in Beed district. She said due to Mumbai's traffic it was difficult to reach one's destination by road. "Since I had to attend the next rally in Ghatkopar, I took the train as it is one of best transport systems in Mumbai," she said. In the train, she spoke to commuters who were wondering if she will be able to resolve any of their problems. "We want that Pankaja should ask the PM to increase local services on Central Railway, which has fewer services compared to Western Railway. Attention should also be paid to cleanliness at stations," said a commuter.

2014-10-05Congress fields highest women candidates, most kin
Congress fields highest women candidates, most kin of party leaders Sunday, 5 October 2014 - 6:45am IST | Agency: DNA Kanchan Srivastava 11Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit The Congress has fielded the maximum number of women candidates for the state assembly polls — 27 — and most of them are either wives, daughters or direct relatives of party's senior leaders. Who are the candidates? Ex-chief minister Ashok Chavan's wife Ameeta (Bhokar), ex-Congress leader BN Desai's daughter Susieben Shah (Malabar Hill), and tourism minister Sanjay Deotale's relative Asawari Deotale.(Warora). The debutantes are Varsha Gaikwad (Dharavi), Praniti Shinde (Solapur city central), Nirmala Gavit (Igatpuri), and Annie Shekhar (Colaba), who are seeking re-election. Gaikwad is the daughter of ex-MP Eknath Gaikwad, and Praniti Shinde is the daughter of ex-Union home minister Sushilkumar Shinde, showing the party's preference for family members of their leaders than women who came up from the grass roots. What about the other parties? The NCP has fielded 20 women candidates, BJP 18, Shiv Sena 7 and MNS 11. How do the numbers compare with those of previous polls? Though the number of women pitted from the five major parties is slightly higher than the same of previous polls, as they are contesting separately, it is still less than 10% of the nominations. The Sena's tally is the poorest at 4%. Defending the party, Sena leader Prem Shukla said, "We don't believe in fielding family members. Winnability is our main criterion in choosing a candidate. The party found only seven winnable women candidates and fielded them." What are the reasons for fewer women candidates in the fray? Politicians blame women leaders for not nurturing women in their constituencies. "Most never promote any woman due to insecurity. Hence, it is tough for a grass-roots woman to get a ticket unless big leaders know her personally," said a Congress leader, citing example of a senior Congress MLA, who fielded her maid in the BMC election instead of supporting any woman from her team. A BJP leader too said no women MPs and MLAs have promoted other women, which has led to a unique situation in all parties, where they are forced to field candidates for the sake of fielding women. "In such a scenario, women are pitted from the tough seats, which parties are likely to lose," a Congress leader said. Observers, meanwhile, blamed parties for not taking women seriously in the poll fray. BJP's candidates are... Except sitting legislators Madhuri Misal from Parvati in Pune, and Pankaja Munde Palve from Parli in Beed district, the rest are new faces. Two of them — Bharti Lavhekar (Versova) and Manda Mhatre (Belapur) — have defected from the NCP. NCP's candidates are... The NCP has fielded Jyoti Kalani, wife of Pappu Kalani from Ulhasnagar, Rakhi Jadhav (Ghatkopar), Mahila wing chief Alpana Painter (Andheri West), and Huzefa Electricwala (Mumbadevi). Poll catfight In many places, women candidates are facing each other. Varsha Gaikwad of Congress is pitted against Divya Dhole of BJP in Dharavi; in Teosa, Yashomati Thakur of Congress is contesting against BJP's Nivedita Chaudhari. Praniti Shinde will take on BJP's Mohini Patki in Solapur city central. 11Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Maharashtra Elections 2014CandidatesCongresswomenpoliticiansNominations

Who will come together to elect the next mayor and deputy mayor for Ulhasnagar?The author has posted comments on this articlePradeep Gupta, TNN | Oct 4, 2014, 12.31PM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4ULHASNAGAR: After the Shiv Sena and BJP alliance broke in the state, in Ulhasnagar city too they have broken their alliance in UMC and are fighting the mayor and deputy mayor elections separately, which is to be held on Saturday. It will be surprising to see who will come together to elect the city's next mayor and deputy mayor. In Ulhasnagar, BJP and Shiv Sena with the help of SAI ( Secular Alliance of India) party are in the majority in Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation. More surprisingly, SAI party, which has kept the mayor post for the last two-and-a-half years, this time too has fielded its candidate for the mayor post taking advantage of the Sena's and BJP's separation. However, if political sources are to be believed then Sena and BJP with SAI party may again form the alliance to avoid problems in other corporations as then BJP may take back its support from other corporations like BMC, TMC and KDMC. There are also rumours in the city that this time NCP, which is the single largest party in Ulhasnagar with 21 seats, may go with SAI party leaving both Shiv Sena and BJP surprised.

2014-10-04Women get short shrift in Thane - The Asian Age
Women get short shrift in Thane Oct 04, 2014 | Age Correspondent | mumbai Share Despite Thane district having 45 per cent women voters, the percentage of female candidates in the forthcoming Assembly elections is miniscule. The fact that major parties have fielded only four female candidates emphasises that men will continue to dominate the political scene in the region. The only four women candidates in the district are Manda Mhatre (BJP) in Belapur, Sharada Patil (Congress) in Kalyan Rural, Sejal Kadam (MNS) in Kopri-Panchpakhadi and Jyoti Kalani (NCP) in Ulhasnagar. In the Thane district, there are a total of 59 lakh voters, of which 26.57 lakh are women. Despite this, in most of the constituencies there is not even a single woman candidate in the fray. Interestingly, when it comes to putting up dummy candidates, male candidates have turned to their wives in several constituencies. These women filed their nominations as a dummy for their husbands and later withdrew them. In Owala-Majiwada constituency, Parisha Sarnaik filed her candidature for her husband Pratap Sarnaik of Shiv Sena while Sulekha Chavan filed nomination for her husband Sudhakar Chavan of the MNS, both as dummy candidates. In Mira-Bhayandar, Suman Mehta was a dummy candidate for her husband Narendra Mehta of the BJP and in Bhiwandi, Asha More, wife of Shiv Sena aspirant Shantaram More, filed her nomination. Both withdrew after being denied a ticket by the party. Post new comment Your name: * E-Mail Address: * The content of this field is kept private and will not be shown publicly.

2014-10-03Parties banking on youth to bag votes - The Asian
Parties banking on youth to bag votes Oct 03, 2014 | Age Correspondent | mumbai Share Youths will be the prime target of parties in Thane district in the Assembly elections, as they constitute nearly half of the electorate in the region. It follows that parties will have to woo this section vehemently if they want to perform well in the district. The recent voter registration drive found that the percentage of young voters was rising in the district. Of the total 59.9 lakh voters, a whopping 27.99 lakh voters (47 per cent) were found to be aged between 18 and 39 years. Further, of these 27.99 lakh voters, 30,000 were going to vote for the first time having just completed 18 years of age. The final voters’ list released by the Thane collector’s office pegged the total number of voters across 18 Assembly segments of Thane district at 5990,767, of which, 3 lakh new voters had been added over the past three months during the voter registration drive undertaken by the collector’s office after the Lok Sabha elections. The total number of voters in the district had jumped from 56.9 in April to the present 59.9 lakh. Of the 3 lakh new voters, 1.6 lakh were found to be men while 1.4 lakh were found to be women. The highest number of voters (40,088) had been added in the Mira-Bhayandar Assembly constituency, followed by Kalyan Rural (27,263) and Kalwa-Mumbra (25,699) with Kalyan West (22,974), Ovala-Majiwada (22,815), Airoli (22,503) and Murbad (22,284) following suit. The constituencies of Ulhasnagar (7,093) and Shahapur (4,429) had recorded the lowest number of voters. During the general election, the election commission faced a lot of flak as the names of over 6 lakh voters were found to be missing from the voters’ list and lakhs of voters were denied their right to vote. Taking note of this, the collector’s office had organised a special voter registration drive for the past three months, which received a healthy response from people, according to officials from the collector’s office.

Mumbai rises as one to support Swachchh Bharat Abhiyan and keep garbage awayTNN | Oct 2, 2014, 10.53 PM ISTShare on Linkedin CommentsMoreGoogle BookmarksNewsvineLive BookmarksTechnoratiYahoo BookmarksBlogmarksDel.icio.usApnaCircleEmail this articleSave this articleMy Saved articlesPrint this articleAReduce font sizeAIncrease font sizecommentsShare MoreEmail this articleSave this articlePrint this articleAReduce font sizeAIncrease font sizeGoogle BookmarksNewsvineLive BookmarksTechnoratiYahoo BookmarksBlogmarksDel.icio.usApnaCircleMy Saved articlesREAD MORE Western Railway|Swadhin Kshatriya|Swachchh Bharat Swachchh Vidyalaya|Swachchh Bharat Abhiyan|Railway Protection ForceRELATEDMUMBAI: Going by the heartwarming support the city extended to PM Narendra Modi's Swachchh Bharat Abhiyan on Thursday, the BMC landfills will be bursting with refuse. The idea had touched a chord within individuals, students, housing societies, and private and public organizations who each felt that citizens need to cultivate the habit of cleanliness. Goregaon resident Vijay Sharma was astounded when his son, who studies in Class II in Gokuldham School, announced that all waste would henceforth be disposed in the dustbin. "His principal announced this in the morning assembly and the students have taken this message to heart," he said. Both Central Railway and Western Railway deployed a large workforce towards the clean-up task. CR collected 3,000 bags of garbage between Byculla and Parel. At Raoli, its team cleared 700 cubic metres of garbage. "We plan to concentrate more on clean-up while carrying out maintenance during mega blocks," said Mukesh Nigam, CR's divisional railway manager. WR deployed 25-50 officials at each station. "Around 10,000 brooms and 200 litter bins were bought. We have got an overwhelming response from NGOs who wish to volunteer," said Shailendra Kumar, WR's divisional railway manager. Personnel from Government Railway Police and the Railway Protection Force also cleaned the outposts where they work as well as the station areas. Owing to the long weekend and exam season, only a handful of schools joined the Swachchh Bharat Swachchh Vidyalaya campaign. Around 450 students of Hansraj Morarji in Andheri dusted their classrooms, labs and playground. Around 5,000 students from colleges gathered at the Gateway of India for the pledge and 15,000 more did so on campus. Staffers at JJ, KEM, Sion, Nair, Bhabha, Cooper and Rajawadi hospitals took the oath of cleanliness too. BMC's director of medical education Dr Suhasini Nagda said civic hospitals will devise a squad for surprise checks. While Mantralaya staffers opted to take the Gandhi Jayanti holiday, chief secretary Swadhin Kshatriya pledged to devote at least two hours a week to the task. An officer said as Mantralaya was getting a makeover there were "limitations" in cleaning the premises. The defence forces too led by example. Vice Admiral Anil Chopra launched the drive at Western Naval Command headquarters where he addressed 300 officers, sailors and civilian staff. Officials of the Vasai-Virar Municipal Corporation took the oath, after which civic chief Govind Rathod swept the roads at Manvelpada in Virar (E). In Mira-Bhayander too, civic officials and political parties replicated the effort. Kalyan-Dombivli civic chief Ramnath Sonawane cleaned the road outside Kalyan railway station and was joined by students of Birla College. In Ulhasnagar, BJP MLA Kumar Ailani replicated the effort at Gol Maidan. Public and private firms contributed too. At CST, members of the Consumer Guidance Society of India removed a truckload of trash they claim was unattended for a week. Dena Bank staffers wielded the broom at BKC, while Mazagon Dock's volunteers took up the challenging stretch of P D'Mello Road. Bharat Petroleum promised to provide toilet facilities in government schools under the Swachchh Vidyalaya component of the campaign. Typically though, some people were in it for the photo ops. Outside Andheri (E) station, a group of volunteers bunched together, not wielding their brooms, while a school in Oshiwara pleaded to students to assemble for a picture and then take a holiday.
