The Nisarg Heaven Society charged Rs. 3.60 lakh to a woman for feeding stray dogs in society premises at Kandivali. Victim Neha Datwani, works as an advertising executive and she is also an animal lover.

Chairman of the society Mitesh Bora said to a leading news agency, “Around 98 percent of the society members had passed the resolution to levy fine for feeding dogs in the society premises. Being the society’s chairman, it is my duty to make members to follow the rules framed by the majority of members.”

According to Mr.Bora, they have no problem if anyone from society feeds dogs outside the premises. They have the only problem with feeding dog in society premises.  He said they are also an animal lover and we have no problem if any society member feeds dogs outside the premises. However, It is a question of human rights too.

Bora further added, “These dogs are aggressive and they bark at senior citizens, kids, and many others. There is a problem with hygiene too. The rule was made after receiving many complaints from the society members.”

On that, the victim Datwani said, “I had an outstanding maintenance bill of Rs 3.60 lakh till March, which also includes Rs 75,000 monthly fine for feeding dogs. They have charged me of Rs 2,500 per day for feeding dogs. In July 2018, the society slapped a fine of Rs 2,500. It went up to Rs 75,000 per month in June. Another member of the society Ketan Shah was also fined for Rs 7,500 in July and thereafter Rs 75,000 per month.”

She continued, “The society had stopped charging penalties in November 2018, after I approached the animal rights activists and informed them about these rules, but in vain.”

Talking about dogs, Datwani said, “They are not stray dogs. They were born in the society premises. I have been taking care of them since their birth. But suddenly the society formed a committee which made a rule of imposing fine on members for feeding dogs. I am feeding dogs on the humanitarian ground.”

“I am likely to move outside the city soon. I want to clear all dues of the society as my mother and sister will continue to stay here, but I won’t pay the fine,” she added.

Shivsena Govt in Maharashtra is under shadow over transfers of Govt Officials. The opposition is continuously attacking Shivsena Govt on transfers and placement of Govt officials they say that there is big nexus of Govt Officials and Political leaders in power and everything is happening under this nexus. Possibly big money involvement is also there. However, there have been cancellations of transfer orders in Udhav Govt and this suggests that someone is holding the remote for the Govt.

This time also similar case is seen in the post of SP of Raigarh it is said that many IPS are in a queue for the post and on the other side, politicians are also up as they want their officers to be appointed and that why there is a delay in coming up of the order and there is a twist that an officer named Ashok Dudhe has been confirmed for the post before any order. NCP leader and MP Sunil Tatkare have been vouching for Mr. Dudhe as Tatkare wants him to be appointed in Raigarh.

Now the question arises that why Merit is cornered in this Govt and posting and transfers are happening at the behest of political leaders. And now if Mr. Dudhe is appointed then it is confirmed that it happened coz of Tatkare and there is an element of corruption and political interference is there and what Udhav Govt does to curb this.

Mumbai: A fishing trawler accidentally netted a gigantic 8-metres long, around 2-3 tonnes weight dotted Whale-Shark fish, while fishing off Mumbai, late on Tuesday night It was dragged in the dead early on Wednesday and later lifted by a crane, and kept at Sassoon Docks. (Photo: IANS)

Late on Tuesday night, a fishing trawler in the Arabian Sea accidentally netted a big catch around 40-50 kms off Colaba.

A giant dotted whale shark got entangled in the fishing nets and desperately struggled to set itself free, but failed, said one of the fishermen on board the vessel.

Owing to darkness and inclement weather conditions, the fishing trawler decided to sail back to Mumbai, dragging the creature in the nets behind it, and reached here early on Wednesday.

They left it along with the net near the shores of the 145-year-old Sassoon Docks in Colaba and sailed back into the sea, informed Damodar Tandel, President of Akhil Bharatiya Machhimar Kriti Samiti and prominent fisherfolk leader.

Later, a crane was deployed to lift the massive dotted whale shark that was around 8-metres (over 26 feet) long, and weighed more than two tonnes (two thousand kilograms).

The crane laid it on the docks as curious fisherfolk gathered around to click selfies this morning.

“We were on a routine patrol in the area and saw this enormous fish, which the fishermen revere as ‘Dev-Masa’ lying here,” Colaba Police Station’s constable Swapnil Kumbhar told IANS.

Though Kumbhar was not clear of the next course of action, prominent fisherfolk leader Damodar Tandel said the whale shark was taken away by a trader who will extract oil from it and dispose off the remains.

This is the first instance in recent times that such a massive fish got entangled in a fishing net, though Mumbai and Maharashtra coastline have witnessed incidents of similar sea-giants getting washed ashore in the past, he said.
