Gandhibagh park which was a great place to play for children and morning walkers is now in shambles as there is no one to care for the park. The park was constructed in the year 1997 and NMC gave its maintenance work to Lotus Cultural and Sporting Association. They were allowed to charge Rs 2 as entry fees from any citizen and Rs 10 from couples. But now there is no one to look after the park.
The divisional railway manager (DRM) of South East Central Railway (SECR), SL verma expressed his helplessness in implementing the Rs 21 crore double line project between nagpur and kalamna due to encroachments in the sanctioned land.
He said that the project was approved in the year 2007 -2008 but could not be implemented due to encroachments in Dobi nagar slums. He has asked for support from the Civil administration of Nagpur to remove the encroachments so that the project can take off.
