It may be recalled that Panvel MLA Prashant Thakur have been doing the follow ups from last many years for the proper development and rehabilitation of the Slums of Panvel. It may be the time when he was in Congress he had than organised meet with Sunil Tatkare the than Finance Minister for the rehabilitation of Slum of Panvel. But due to lack of interest of State the issue was ignored. However at that moment the Panvel was just a Municipal Council and hardly had revenue for such a big concern. But now the situation has changed. After becoming a Municipal Corporation the revenue has gone high and its time it can think about the poor people who from years are lacking basic amenities.
One of the social worker Raju V working with these section of the society said, “Due to the lack of basic civic services the threat of illness of children, women and senior citizens has been rising in these slum regions from years. On other hand this becomes direct and indirect violation of human rights as per the guidelines of United Nation and the Constitution of India.”
