We all owe it to Mr Sanjeev Jaiswal for what he has done for Thane city. Let’s rally around Mr Jaiswal and offer our whole-hearted support to him and his entire team for their ongoing anti-hawkers drive in Thane city.
During his stint as the Municipal Commissioner of Thane for more than two years now, Mr Sanjeev Jaiswal has not only transformed the face of the city, but he has also improved vastly the financial condition of the civic body.
Mr Jaiswal has been a man on the move and with a development mission right from January 2015 when he took over the reins of the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC). Apart from increasing the revenue collections Rs 1,376.6 crore during 2014-15 to an impressive Rs 2,050 crore during 2016-17, one of Mr Jaiswal’s biggest achievements has been to widen the Pokharan Road-I and II, by demolishing hundreds of illegal structures that were impeding the road widening work. Gladys Alvares Marg, located off Pokharan Road-II, is taking shape as the first of model roads in the city. He has planned 10 more such model roads across the city. The development around Thane railway station, which witnesses a staggering 15 lakh footfalls, is another feather Mr Jaiswal’s cap.
Made of sterner stuff, Mr Jaiswal – in an effort to de-congest the areas around the Thane Railway station -- has launched a massive drive against illegal hawkers and unauthorised parking and has taken his anti-hawker drive to the soon-to-be model road -- Gladys Alvares Marg, where his team officials has pulled down illegal hawkers and make-shift stalls to pave way for smooth vehicular traffic.
While his anti-hawker has come in for wholesome praise from various sections of people, Mr Jaiswal has come in for some criticism in a minuscule section of people with vested interests.
RAGA (Residents’ Association for Areas around Gladys Alvares Marg), which represents housing complexes and societies along and around GlA Marg, has thrown its lot with Mr Jaiswal for his praise-worthy citizen-friendly efforts. A delegation of RAGA office-bearers met him Mr Jaiswal on the night of May 14, 2017 when he was personally supervising an anti-hawker operation near Kashinath Ghanekar Auditorium, congratulated him and formally extended its support to the one of the best Municipal Commissioners that Thane has seen.
It is time for all of us to stand by him like a rock of Gibraltar and resist opposition of any kind to his citizen-friendly initiatives, especially his anti-hawker drive. We salute and support you sir.
RAGA requests the citizens living along Gladys Alvares Marg, surrounding areas, people all over Thane, towns and cities across Maharashtra to join the citizens' campaign by it in support of Team Jaiswal.
