Sandeep Joshi became the new mayor of Nagpur city on Friday. After being elected as Mayor, Joshi directly began his work as a Mayor without spending any time in celebrating the instance.
As the first citizen of Nagpur city, Joshi has announced some resolutions for public services. He has made ambitious plans to facilitate the citizens through various initiatives like ‘Mayor Assistance Fund’, ‘Walk and Talk with Mayor’, Citizens’ Suggestion Box and many more.
Mayor assistance fund is the scheme brought forth especially for sports players from the city, who are unable to attend bigger tournaments due to lack of revenue funding. The Mayor Assistance fund will be provided to such players to help them in traveling out of Nagpur for sports tournaments. Joshi even requested to donate the money into poor families, instead of spending it on his felicitation and huge events.
From Saturday, November 23 to December 1 Joshi will visit various constituencies in the city and seek suggestions for the development of Nagpur. From November 29 to December 7, suggestion boxes will be set up at major parks of the city, regional offices, municipal headquarters and also on the known square. These suggestion boxes are being installed to get few ideas from the citizens for the development of the city. Besides, a meeting will be held with, the NGOs from the city, zone wise corporators in the coming week and their suggestions will also be considered on how the city needs to be developed.
