MUMBAI MONSOON: CITIZENS COMPLAIN ABOUT THE WEAKENED TREES, BMC IS YET TO ACT
In the days that followed an old doordarshan Doordarshan, 58, Kanchan Nath succumbed to injuries after a coconut smashed into him in Chembur, dozens of Mumbaikars have written on their precarious roadways.
Over the weekend, when Mumbai Espejo visited the place, it became apparent that the repeated complaints of BMC citizens fell on the sack.
In one case, a housing partnership in Andheri (E) has written to the BMC asking permission to cut a tree in its entirety after it appeared it could root out every moment.
Its branches are already above the adjacent road, and this is the position of the axle that could also collapse on the road. The permit was denied.
In another case, several Colaba neighbors gathered and called a horticulturalist from Pune to investigate the precarious trees in their region, after repeated requests to the BMC to at least cut the branches have given no response. The grower’s report is likely to be presented to Commissioner BMC today.
The root of the issue here is, no surprises, the poor contractor who works charged by the BMC to cut trees. Citizens often complain that trees are pruned to lose their balance. Sometimes it is assumed that the trees being pruned or cut are left intact, while the perfect state of health trees have just been cut.
Ecologist Anand Pendharkar told the Mumbai Mirror that random tree cutting was one of the main reasons the trees were falling.
“Why trees are what collapses in the woods or in large enclosures where they are much more? It is unscientific and meaningless piracy by the BMC, which led to the fall of trees, and more years of bad species Of softwood are planted in Mumbai, “said Pendharkar.
Between June 6 and July 22, three people were killed in BMC’s jurisdiction after the trees collapsed. First, a 14-year-old boy was crushed by a tree near the Nagar navy in Colaba.
On July 1, a 67-year-old rickshaw driver was crushed by a tree in Borivali and Kanchan Nath, a resident of Chembur, succumbed to the injuries, on 22 July. However, Deputy Municipal Commissioner Kishore Kshirsagar, who is responsible for the area of gardens, is responsible for Tree Cup, said that there is not a single case of negligence on the part of the civic body.
“Our department does not have a single case where residents have requested permission to cut trees and we have not authorized them.If people feel that their complaints were not dealt with, they should have to raise the top officials. Complaints, fairly simple phone complaints.
Following the latest developments, we began a new round of inspection and trees along the city’s cut, “Kshirsagar said.
