Yes I want to join....Alok
And six extensions??
No. U will be shocked to know that there was a metropolitan transport team of planning commission which planned this flyover in 1965 and was to be completed by 1970. But as politicians and bureaucrats are busy in making money they keep delaying everything to get full juice by exerting more crush and hence delay of 40 years in this link road. In 40 years world has changed for better but India specially Mumbai has gone to doge.
How I know abt MTT??? By dad's closest friend just like brother Shri Rameshchandraji Sharma was in this team and made several proposals for development of Mumbai. He was in planning commission, Delhi. For his planning he used to come to Mumbai and would stay with us. He would share these plans with us while chitchatting but whatever I heard from him nothing or very little has come up in Mumbai.
I still have his email id/ and nos. ( though retired and old) if some well known person from media would like to take his interview and let citizens of Mumbai know that all best plans have remained in files and money gone in scams and today IAS, commissioners, collectors,secretaries,tahsildar,talati and others are having 1000 crore + in their coffers but we live in Pathetic condition.
Some RTI activist can also get info from planning commission as to what were the plans for Mumbai.
I appreciate ur good work of creating awareness abt govt apathy and sinister delays.
I have been saying for years that we must make small videos comparing Malaysia, China etc who have come up in last 25 yrs and where we stand.
And they say India shining???? Shameless people.
