â€œI have been repeatedly denying the tokens of appreciation in all of my meetings, instead I request all the dignitaries who present here to contribute to the Mayor funds, and this amount will utilise to help the needy people in the cityâ€ said Sandip Joshi during a press meet held at press club on Thursday.
He further explained that there are many talented people in our city who are not able to reach or accomplish their goal just because they cannot afford the expenses related to their travel, stay and other miscellaneous cost. Mayor aims to help those citizens with a Mayor Nidhi Yojana, who is not able to get the help through Pradhan Mantri Yojana.
We have already started sorting up the names who have applied for Mayor Nidhi plan and in coming 10 days we will finalize a list of people who will be getting the fund support from Mayor Nidhi plans. The plan is to provide funds from RS. 500 to Rs. 25,000 which will be distributed to the people in the finalized list from January.
Joshi also mentioned, the Walk and Talk with Mayor received a good response and Â from the citizens as the Nagpur Municipal Corporation is still getting calls to hold more of such events. The citizens showed their personal interest and came up with many ideas to help the development of the city.
During the event Breakfast with Mayor, which recently organized witnessed more than hundred NGOs who had came with their development plans for the city.
