Kharghar the golden city of Navi Mumbai is witnessing a quantum of hoarding menace. Social worker Harpal Singh of SAYA informs, “Kharghar which has the biggest proposed projects like Central Park, Golf Course, ISCKON Temple which are expected to attract the highest number of visitors to the city from all over the country. As most of the projects are in developing phase, huge hoardings have been put up everywhere. CIDCO, the developing authority is only found busy selling plots and not at all interested in keeping the city clean. All the street poles here bear hoardings which have been put up illegally. Such hoardings have defaced beauty of the node”.
“Instead of taking action against such nuisance, CIDCO itself has put up hoardings. Even the police department has put upon banners and hoardings without legal permission. If the CIDCO and Police do not start taking action and not stop putting up such nuisance, why will others do the same,” he wonders.
