Mumbai 23rd October, 2017: BJP party workers held a protest against BMC demanding reconstruction of recently collapsed foot over bridge at Charni Road. Under the leadership of Corporator of Tardeo Smt. Sarita Pachil, Corporator of Girgaum Dr. Anuradha Potdar, Corporator of Khetwadi Smt. Meenal Patel and BJP president of Malabar hill Smt. Shweta Manjrekar, around 300 party workers participated in a peaceful agitation.
As the Charni Road foot over bridge has collapsed the entire load of passengers is on the bridge towards the northern side. MLA of Malabar Hill Shri. Mangal Prabhat Lodha met officials of BMC and Railway and demanded the reconstruction of the bridge at the earliest to avoid a mishap like Elphinstone. Since there is only one bridge for exit on Charni Road East side it becomes troublesome for passengers. In this meeting MLA Shri. Lodha warned BMC of a huge agitation if the work is not started at the earliest.
On Monday in the ‘D’ ward Office at Nana Chowk during the peaceful agitation by BJP, three of the Corporators and BJP president of Malabar Hill met Assistant Commissioner of BMC Vishwas Mote with their demands and gave application to convey the sentiments of public. During this protest President of South Mumbai BJP Youth Wing Sharad Chintankar, BJP Minister Narendra Bhandari and other party officials like Ajay Chaurasia, Pramod Jain, Ajay Patil, Gaurav Tendulkar, Ravindra Karanjgaonkar, Shahrukh Billimoria, and Prashant Raool were present.
