You will find it quite annoying that Country’s biggest Corporation MCGM has few officers who work in other Ward and get salary etc from other Ward. And if it happens in creamy area where there is a heavy scope of kickbacks there are dozens of such cases but only few see the lights.

Famous by the name CHOTA AMBANI an Ast Engineer Mr Suryavanshi has all the shots and story for a Bollywood film on him.

The reason why he is called Chota Ambani is that he has acquired properties and has investment worth of crores in foreign countries apart from Maharashtra.

As if now Mr Suryavanshi gets his attendance marked and his salary from E ward but he works in B ward for many years. For an Asst Engineer B ward is a creamy area because there are hoards of illegal construction happening in B ward. Full of Narrow lanes and dilapidated buildings this area is famous for illegal construction activities. There are umpteen numbers of buildings from 4 to 10th floor that are illegal.

Actually the tenants of old dilapidated buildings in the areas give it to LandMafiyas and they make its into a 10th floor building. In Masjid Bandar the commercial godowns of teenshed has been converted into a sprawling commercial hubs and all these happens with Asst Engineer of the ward . In B wards, in the name of action there is nothing to be taken into account and when there are pressure for action then the builder goes to court and takes a stay and it all happens hand-in-gloves with the Asst Engineers and these Engineers and other officers get kickbacks at Sq Ft rate. These Engineers work closely with the builders to get the desired stay on the property and charge extra fee from developers.

Mr Suryavanshi is exactly working for the same lobby of developers in B ward who have built thousands of unauthorised buildings and he is working to save these illegal buildings. Mr Suryavanshi type officers in wards keep their immediate officers happy and Ward’s AMC can do anything against them because they have connections with DMC and Adl MC city.
There is no any other Asst Engineer except Mr. Suryavanshi in this E wards (he too is not officially in E ward) while there are lots of post which stay vacant and E wards Asst MC Mr Nitin Arte has additional charge of 3 Engineers.

Sources say that Suryavanshi alias Chota Ambani has earned properties (benaami) worth of crores of rupees. He has also sent his brother in foreign country where they have also got properties worth of millions of rupees. There are Land Grabbers like Mairaj Rahmaan, Mehboob Soratiya, Saleem Masala and Motiwala type builders have given crores of rupees to Suryavanshi and as per the sources they have made their name and position in B ward too and all because of Mr Suryavanshi and these land grabbers are often seen having breakfast etc in B ward office.

When we tried to speak to E ward’s Asst MC he refuse to comment on this issue and when we brought out this issue to B ward Asst MC and asked to comment on Mr. Suryavanshi he also refuse to talk.

It is said that Suryavanshi keeps the officers of wards happy and that is the reason he is smoothly working on his plan and despite many complaints he continue to work in B ward and talking his Salary etc from E ward.

In a first, no giant idol at 86-year-old Lalbaugcha Raja

Published

on

 First time in its 86-year history, the famed and iconic Lalbaugcha Raja will not be installed during the upcoming 11-day Ganeshotsav, official sources said here on Wednesday.

It will be replaced by a small idol of around 3-4 feet for the traditional ‘puja’ and other ceremonies, at the 127-year-old 11-day Ganesha festival, which starts on August 22.

This will be in adherence to an appeal by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to celebrate Ganeshotsav 2020 with more devotion and less pomp in the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“This year, we shall celebrate Ganeshotsav as ‘Arogyautsav’ with 11-days of blood and plasma donation camps, donate Rs 25 lakh to the CM Relief Fund for corona aid, help families of the soldiers martyred in the recent India-China border skirmish and Maharashtra Police personnel who lost their lives in the ongoing war against virus,” Sudhir Salvi, Secretary, Lalbaugcha Raja Sarvajanik Ganeshotsav Mandal (LRSGM) told mediapersons.

In view of Thackeray’s plea, all Ganeshotsav Mandals in the state took a voluntary decision to restrict the height of Ganesha to less than four feet, first time in over four decades since the trend of gigantic idols started.

The normal imposing, 15-feet plus tall idol of Lalbaugcha Raja, and other mega-idols in Mumbai, Pune and other cities will be conspicuous by their absence in the Maharashtra Ganeshotsav celebrations.

A majority of the mandals will have subdued celebrations with small, manageable idols as there will be no huge processions or the elaborate immersion ceremonies at seafronts or other water bodies, as decided by the government.

Besides concentrating on social activities related to the pandemic, many huge mandals will make arrangements to offer online “aarti”, “puja” or “darshan” to the devotees to avoid crowds.
