Deonar Residents to protest road through homes:

Ignoring the objections raised to the plan in the earlier draft, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation(BMC) has retained its proposal for a road across 133 shanties in Sunderbaug, Deonar CTS 301/3,4 in its revised development plan (DP) for the next 20 years.

The 700 slum dwellers from Sunderbaugwadi, who stand to lose their homes, now plan a signature campaign,

Accroding to the residents, the road was planned on an adjacent plot and not through the shanties in the DP made in 1991.  In the draft DP 2015 and 2016 the road was proposed on their plot, to which they have sent their objections to DP Department.

The BMC officials assured them the proposed road will be removed during revision, but it hasn't done. Sunderbaug residents sent many objection and holding signature campaign, the ALM and the all nearest residents were given the objection about this road in suggestion and objection.

Civil officials says, however, beg to differ, they claim 50% of the DP is existing and the proposed alignment is to link it ahead. 

Sunderbaug says that there is no need to link ahead as slum dwellers hasn't hold any access of any other people were they situated since 1969. They said that make a dead end of this road till shantis starts.

Residents also approached SRA for redevelopment and it is in process, all other road which on the slums were removed but this road they have not removed, there will not by any chance of any new development in this area in future, all the facilities like school, garden, playground, hospitals, industries and resident area has been developed so there is no need of this new road, only our development is hold due to this proposed road.

Residents approached to planning committee during hearing they have also agreed about  removing road but committee has not recommended anything any their report!!.

Residents says that we are vulnerable in this system nobody listening our voice, please raised your voice against this road and give us right of live according to the Constitution.
