Chief Controller of Unauthorized Construction brought down two
dargahs and a mandir
in a midnight operation

The action was
prompted by a PIL filed
by Navi Mumbai Environment Preservation
Society in 2013. After
hearing the PIL, Bombay High Court had ordered CIDCO to demolish the unauthorized
structures and file a
compliance report on or
before 7 November,
2014. Accordingly, a
demolition squad led by
the Controller of Unauthorized Controlled descended on the spot at
1.00 am on 1 November, 2014 and went on
with the demolition.
Since the target included the Samudreshwar Mandir, the Hindu
residents came out in
protest, but the squad
went ahead with its
work ignoring them. By
5.00 am, all the structures had been pulled

Clear the re-development
of CIDCO buildings at
once: Sandeep Naik
By a staff reporter
Sandeep Naik has
sought the early
clearance of the
scheme for the redevelopment of
CIDCO built
buildings in
the city.
In a letter
addressed to
the new Chief
Fadnavis, Naik has
reminded him that the
previous government
had sanctioned 2.5 FSI

however could not be
implemented for want
of the mandatory order
from the state government in the form of a
GR. Naik has requested that the same be
issued at once.
He has also requested that the illegal
buildings built by the
residents of
the gaothans
be regularized
and additional
FSI be granted
to facilitate
their redevelopment.
to a third
demand, Naik has
sought the vehicles
owned by the residents
of Vashi, Airoli and
Kharghar be exempted
from the payment of
These demands are
contained in a letter
dated 1 November,
2014 sent by Naik.

Tata Motors bags orders for
321 buses under JNNURM
scheme from West India
By Chandrashekhar Hendve
Motors today announced that it has received yet another order to supply 321 Tata
Marcopolo buses to the
State Transport Authorities in the Western region of India. The
order includes 50 units
bagged from Amravati
(Amravati Municipal
Corporation), 80 units
from Mira Bhayandar
(Mira-Bhayandar Municipal Corporation), 70 units
from KalyanDombivli (Kalyan Dombivli
Transport), 60
units from Navi
Mumbai (Navi
Mumbai Municipal Transport),
10 units from
Vasai (Vasai-Virar Municipal
Tr a n s p o r t a tion), 8 units from Latur (Latur Municipal
Corporation) and 43
units from Goa (Kadamba Transport Corporation). These are part
of the 2700 orders
bagged by Tata Motors,
for Tata ‘URBAN’ buses under JnNURM - II

State Transport Authorities.
These buses are fitted with CCTV cameras that can record each
and every movement
inside the bus. Wider

Brahmins make a comeback
Devendra Fadnavis was sworn-in as the Bharatiya Janata
Party’s first and Maharashtra’s 27th chief minister in a gala
ceremony at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium on Friday. The best
thing about Fadnavis is that he is a Brahmin who will head a
State which was previously dominated by Marathas.
Thackeray was invited by BJP president Amit Shah as a
special guest, though BJP has not yet decided on taking the
Sena on board to form its government in Maharashtra. The
25-year-old alliance between the BJP and Shiv Sena had broken last month following differences over sharing of seats for
the Assembly polls. BJP leaders were also furious about the
comments passed by newspapers run by Shiv Sena.
In the run-up to the polls, Thackeray had said the BJP’s
star campaigners were like “Afzal Khan’s aulad”. Addressing
a public rally at Tuljapur, Sena national president had said,
“What are they up to? First Modi comes to campaign, then
his entire cabinet team campaigns for votes in Maharashtra.
They are like Afzal Khan’s aulad, trying to conquer this state.”
Another issue that has hurt the BJP leadership is an editorial that appeared in Sena mouthpiece “Saamna” a day after
the poll campaign ended. “The BJP ignored Sena after the
Lok Sabha win. The Sena played a significant role, otherwise
even Modi’s father would not have been able to win majority
in the Lok Sabha polls,” it said.
Sources said the BJP has conveyed to the Sena that it wants
a public or private apology. The party also wants the Sena to
declare its support without any terms and conditions. The
BJP’s list of dos and don’ts form part of the back channel
negotiations, which also include discussions on cabinet berths.
With the rise of BJP in India as well as in certain states, it
is a clear indication of the fact that Brahmins have made a
comeback because Brahmins have bagged most top BJP posts.
The Brahmin, Bania party doesn’t seem to be interested in
romancing the OBCs anymore. The BJP’s choice of presidents
in electorally crucial states as well as its central list of officebearers symbolically highlights the trend quite clearly. The
central unit led by Nitin Gadkari is dominated by the Brahmins. Besides the two leaders, Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley, the senior-most general secretary, Ananth Kumar, is also
a Brahmin.
However, the party has been led by Brahmins in most other states. Pandit Ashwini Sharma has been heading it in Punjab, while Arun Chaturvedi has been the president of the Rajasthan unit. In Himachal Pradesh, the BJP has found a Brahmin, Pandit Khimi Ram, to head it.
In states such as Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Bihar, the BJP has ended up appointing a Brahmin. RSS-appointee Prabhat Jha is the chosen one to head Madhya Pradesh.
Similarly in Bihar, three prominent names like Mangal Pandey, Ashwini Choubey and Sukhda Pandey dominate and they
are Brahmins. They were brought to forefront to counter-balance Nitish’s overt stress on wooing the “extreme backwards”.
Even in Uttar Pradesh, the BJP is desperate to fill the lacuna
created by Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s withdrawal from public life.
While the BJP is considering many candidates, Lucknow mayor
Dinesh Sharma is a strong contender because of his Brahmin
Thus Brahmins have at last made a comeback.

PMC erects hoarding structures
in various parts of the city
Letters to the Editor....
Swearing in ceremony –
one of its kind
Devendra Fadnavis was sworn in as the Chief
Minister of Maharashtra on Friday. The grand
event held at Wankhede stadium, Mumbai was choreographed by the famous Bollywood art director Nitin Desai. Everything
including the stage decoration and folk musical performances were designed to reflect the hallowed traditions and culture of Maharashtra. The
ceremony was designed to be one of its kind.
The overall cost of the ceremony is estimated to be about Rs 17.6 lakhs. Such a lavish ceremony has expectedly set the tongues wagging.
The critics have not forgotten the words of BJP which was very critical
over the expenses incurred in the swearing in of Arvind Kejriwal as the
Chief Minister of Delhi about a year ago. The ceremony had cost an estimated Rs 13 lakhs. They are now turning the tables on BJP.
All that one wishes to say is that winning an election is not an end in
itself. The party should endorse its victory with good governance.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been exhorting people to live frugally. The pomp witnessed at Wankhede stadium hardly reflects simplicity or austerity the PM has been advocating.

Start mini bus service in Panvel
Citizens of Panvel should wholeheartedly welcome the Panvel Municipal Council’s initiative to start new buses in and around Panvel and New
Panvel area.
We are all aware that a modern and well planned township has been
developed at New Panvel by CIDCO. This township is growing in size day
by day due to its proximity to the industrial belt.
The authorities have totally failed to provide the growing needs of people residing in New Panvel which is lacking in basic facilities such as
transportation system. Residents have to depend on auto rickshaws or
their own vehicles to reach their destination.
The autos are primarily causing problem to the commuters and charging extra amount. They do not have any mature system and they have
total monopoly as they know people have no other alternative to travel in
the city. Auto drivers in the locality make life of people miserable with
their whims and fancies.
So it is most essential to start the intercity bus services in and around
Panvel, New Panvel, Khanda Colony and Kamothe. The authorities totally failed to start this service in spite of Ministry of Urban Development
giving its approval for the project long time back.
It is high time that the bus service begins immediately and if this is
done then it will surely yield good result and provide great relief to the
citizens of the locality. The people of this area are desperately waiting for
such service, which has been pending since long time.

Unique record of Younis Khan
It is a matter of great revelation for the Pakistani batsman Younis
Khan to score hat-trick of centuries in three outings at Abu Dhabi against
a formidable Australian side in a test match situation. He was the cynosure of cricketing world as of now as he moved from one hundred to another.
Incidentally, when the Pakistani one drop batsman scored his century
in the first test, it was the first from the seasoned batsman against the
Australian side. Now he went on to add two more hundreds and created
an unique record. The Pakistani batsman was thinking of quitting International cricket after he was dropped from the one day side. He now revealed his mind and informed the press about his intention to play 2015
World cup down under. His scintillating stroke play and the way he scored
runs at a brisk pace during a crucial time of the match shows his tenacity to play for couple of more years before calling it a day.
Pakistan’s batting is susceptible to both pace and spin and they need a
sheet-anchor like Younis Khan to take the side to safety and go for offence
later on. Younis Khan became the first man to compile three consecutive
centuries against Australia in 90 years. Younis’ reached his century in a
mere 128 balls, summing up the escalation of his technical and mental
mastery over the bowlers following his dogged wrestle with them on the
first day of the series.
Younis Khan is the modern Bradman of World of cricket. Generally
spin bowlers mature with age but here is the case of a batsman doing
wonderfully well in International cricket.

the Panvel Municipal
Corporation has erected
a number hoarding

The PMC has erected structures at Garden

there at the Ambedkar
statue. The latest one
has come up at the
Ambedkar statue within days after the votes
were counted for the assembly election.

area of concern for

Reid and his staff
would also be happy
with the return of skipper Syed Rahim Nabi
to the line-up and
availability of French
international Nicolas
Anelka, both of whom
played the full 90 minutes in their last encounter in Chennai.
The score-line, notwithstanding, both
Anelka and Nabi
showed glimpses of
their class and could
run riots over the Kerala Blasters’ defence if

City and the likes of
Manuel Friedrich and
Raju Gaikwad would
have to ensure that
custodian Subrata Pal
isn’t exposed to one-onone situations against
the opposition strikers.
Reid hinted as
much when he insisted
that Pal was an exceptional goalkeeper and it
was the job of the team
to defend well in front
of him so that they do
not concede “cheap
goals” while referring
to 10 goals conceded as
against six scored. The
home team is currently placed at seventh position in the eight team
pool with three points
as against the visitors
who are placed fifth
with five points.

Gambling along the road to October hailstorm provides a massive
stock of fuel-woods to the slum dwellers
Panvel railway station
By Umesh Parida
PANVEL: The early
morning hours have
proved to be a massive
gain for the gamblers
who loot the people by
means of lottery. They
police hardly take any
action. The lottery
method of cheating continues daily for hours.
The group, according to those who were
cheated, are found con-
hours of the morning
that particular spot
has little police surveillance, these gamblers
take advantage of the
situation. Their modus
operandi keeps chang-
sometimes gamble on
the slip road that joins
the water tank with
the Panvel railway station. Many people participate in this game
which usually is played
in the morning and in
the process many have
been looted of big sum.
A around 6.30 am a
group of people are
found assembled on one
side of the slum pocket
to start the lottery
game. A group of few
persons continued for
few days after which a
few more joined them.
This appears like a
huge network of organized cheating but the
sisting of members
who keep changing
from time to time.
They start their own
way of operation by attracting people and
then in the name of lottery they cheat many.
Those who become
aware of their wrongdoings and threaten to
complain are threatened into being silent
by these gamblers.
On one occasion
during the morning
hours a group had
slapped a person who
had complained about
their wrongdoings. Being a slum pocket and
since during the early
ing with arrival of new
members belonging to
this huge network. The
members keep on
changing to prevent
those cheated from getting a chance to complain about them.
What is surprising
is that even though
this morning lottery
game in the name of
gambling or cheating
has been going on for
months the police do
not take action. Many
complain that the police themselves support this network and
hence no help can be
expected from the police.

massive hailstorm that
hit the city a month ago
has given much relief to
the slum dwellers of the
city. The hailstorm has
broken down many
tion along the railway
tracks also.
In both the instance, the slum pockets which generally use
wood as fuel have managed to collect a massive stock of broken tree
which had fallen during the Navratri time
are yet to be cleared by
the municipal corporation or the railways due
to less accessibility.
This has resulted in
slum dwellers using
trees before the Dussehra celebration but has
resulted in providing a
massive stock of woods
for fuel for the poor people.
It can be noted that
due to heavy rainfall
and the thunderstorm
during the Navratri
days a large number of
trees were uprooted.
The Thane-Belapur
road had witnessed
massive tree destruc-
branches or the entire
tree. They have stored
these for future use.
They are saved of the
work of collecting the
wood as these slum
dwellers do not need to
axe trees for at least the
coming few months.
A slum dweller near
the Ghansoli railway
station has collected a
massive stock of woods
and has kept it in the
storage. Many trees

the trees axed and collected. They are holding the stock for their
Even a slum dweller at Turbhe says, “We
will have to spend less
this season for fuel and
other needs since we
have a huge stock of
woods collected and
stored for cooking purpose and we got them
free of cost.”
