Corruption allegations against Panvel Municipal authorities

Panvel municipality’s decision to demolish a toilet that situated opposite to Shivaji Chowk, evoked corruption allegations and public concerns. As per the public opinion our newspaper has published the stinking conditions of toilets in Panvel. We have exposed the official lethargy and irresponsibility which has caused lack of sanitation in the city. Public toilets play a crucial role in the daily working of a city. A toilet that situated opposite to Shivaji Chowk is victimized due lies in ruins.

Prathmesh Soman, a Panvel Municipal counsellor of Shiv Sena, has come out with a serious criticism against the ruling authorities of Panvel Municipality. “A building located behind the toilet is not getting sold due to its filthy conditions and the builder wants the public toilet to be destroyed. The builder has bribed the corrupted politicians in the municipality. That is why authorities haven’t taken steps to clean or maintain it” he said.

The municipality has denied the allegations and challenged to prove the corruption. But municipal authorities have also informed that the toilet is planned to demolish and create a better one, as it is situated bit into the road and create traffic congestions. Municipal authorities have produced confusion than a solution in handling the issue.

Two important departments are blaming each other over maintaining the toilet and sanitation. Health Department of sanitation informed to contact the Public Works Department for the maintenance of the toilet. But P.W. Department denied its role and blamed the sanitation department for filthy conditions of Toilet.

Pravin more, a resident of Panvel, said “we have strong objection against demolishing the toilet, as it is situated near to Tehsil office and Police station and used by many public. For a long time, it is lying in ruins. We believe that authorities are helping the builder for getting his property sold.”

Charusheela Gharat, President of Panvel Municipal Council, said “we are taking every step to help public. The old toilet decided to be demolished, but we are also looking for a better space to accommodate the new toilet. Allegations are baseless. We will consider people’s need in every aspect. The current location of toilet has made many traffic problems in the area.”
