At the inauguration ceremony of the laying of water pipelines in Navpada Area, Bandra (E). I am happy that the citizens of the Navpada area will finally receive a steady flow of water, a basic necessity which was denied to them.
It was a day of shared joy for us and the families of nearly 1500 differently-abled. At our disability camp on 16th February 2014, 672 hearing aids, 749 Mobility Aids (Wheelchairs/Walking Sticks/Calipers/Braille Slates) and 8 Fabrication were distributed free of charge to assist our differently-abled into independent living.It put a smile on their faces and an overwhelming warmth in our hearts. Special thanks to ALIMCO, A.Y.J.N.I.H.H., my team and volunteers for making this day a happy one for many.

It was a day of celebration for the residents of Kalina who will now finally have their own market, with the issues surrounding its five year stop -work being resolved. Met Revenue Minister Balasaheb Thorat, Municipal Commissioner Sitaram Kunte, the residents of Kalina and the vicinity fisher folk to resolve this matter.
This had been a very sensitive matter for the Kalina residents as there was no market in its vicinity and the fisher folk were sitting on the street outside the market. The fisher women too had been on a chain fast in protest and for the market work to start. Today theirs and the residents of Kalina’s struggle came to a fruitful end.
Our disability camp enabled 800 disabled children, adults and youth with various kinds of aids including hearing aids, prosthesis calipers and chairs. It put a smile on their faces and an overwhelming warmth in our hearts. Thank you to my team and volunteers.
