Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) is taking great initiatives to stop pollution of water bodies this festive season by implementing a ban on Plaster of Paris (POP) idols. It has held a meetings with mandals and idol makers. Mandals are requested not to purchase idols made of plaster of paris. Idol makers are asked to make idols of clay and not mix pop with clay. NMC has also asked the general public to lend their support for their success. Though the ban on pop idols had been voiced earlier but it has been implemented now.
Police Chief, Ankush Dhanvijay has appealed general public to help cops. Daily thefts in the outskirts of the city is troubling the police department. They want males with a good build up to patrol the area along with the police for the safety of their locality so that the thefts stop and people live at peace. Some residents remained awake at night to protect their locality from burglary and safeguard the women community due to common incidents of thefts.
Combined efforts of Police Chief Ankush Dhanvijay and sanjeev Jaiswal to make Nagpur city encroachment free have gone in vain due to lack of regular checks, encroachers are back to business at their own place. Many encroachers have again occupied footpaths and roads and are doing regular business. Hard work of NMC to clear these encroachments will go useless if all encroachers return and run their shops. Most of them are vegetable vendors and cloth sellers.
We have already heard of Nagpur Municipal Corporation anti encroachment drive to clean footpaths and roads to provide space for parking and walking. Now the demolition drive is against commercial establishments which have extended illegally in to public places and have extended their shop beyond limits by constructing shed and walls. The anti encroachment drive is supervised by civic chief Sanjeev Jaiswal and Police chief Ankush Dhanvijay. The walls and sheds will be removed and stern action will be taken against encroachers so that they do not encroach the land again.
Police Chief Ankush Dhanvijay has warned Nagpurians about drunken driving many times since the start of 2012. But on the day of festival Holi more than 500 cases of drunken driving were registered. The number has outnumbered cases of drunken driving on New year eve.
