An alert citizen has brought to the notice encroachment on a public utility land by a builder and Nagpur Municipal Corporation’s private contractor. The playgrounds one each in Rajiv Nagar and Ram Nagar were being used by senior citizens for walking and sports persons for playing.
During the last few months, these grounds have been used either for dumping construction material or for other commercial purposes.
Talking to The Live Nagpur he said that NMC authorities said that they have not received any complaint so far and would act only when a complaint is lodged with them. He posted the grievance online and has appealed to consider it as a petition. He has invited the attention of Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, and the Municipal Commissioner.
