Locals back PCMC drive against illegal buildings
The residents handed him over a letter of support in which they lauded his action against illegal buildings despite pressure from various quarters. They also supported his move to transfer over 300 PCMC employees besides initiating department audit and probe against alleged wrong-doers.
“Since he joined office in June, 2012, he has taken a number of initiatives to ensure an effective and transparent PCMC. All this has happened despite pressure on him from several quarters. And that is the reason why decided to meet the commissioner and express our support,” said Iyer.
D G Baliga, a retired Air Force officer from Pimpri, said, “His move to scale down the school budget from Rs 108 crore to Rs 100 crore was highly appreciative. Similarly, he has brought in checks on hospital bill reimbursement of PCMC, which will also save crores.”
Sanjeevani Pandey from Chinchwad said the commissioner should do whatever possible to end the menace of illegal construction and ensure that Pimpri-Chinchwad becomes a well-planned city.
