PUNE: The resident groups from Hinjawadi IT Park, Resident Welfare Association (HIRWA), Hinjawadi Employees and Residents Trust (HEART) and Kharadi Housing Societies Welfare Association have come up with citizens’ manifesto for the forthcoming State Assembly elections.
“The root cause of all our problems is that Hinjawadi IT park is a semi-urban area, however, it is managed by gram panchayat which is the main issue. Therefore, one of our main demands is to bring Hinjawadi under PMC or make it an integrated township. We will meet the candidates of our constituency and tell them about our problems,” said Ravindra Sinha, a HIRWA member.
“One of the biggest challenges of Hinjawadi is that there are too many stakeholders. Some of the areas come under gram panchayat while some under MIDC and PMRDA. Therefore, the issues like bad roads, burning the garbage and unauthorised encroachment remain unresolved,” said Dnyanendra Hulsure, President of HEART.
The Kharadi Housing Societies Welfare Association (KHSWA) has also released citizens’ manifesto and highlighted issues regarding traffic management, water supply and development of internal roads.
Deepak Patil of KHSWA said, “One of our main demands is that we want the metro to pass from EON IT park which will help people and also aid in solving the traffic problems. We have started meeting the candidates of our constituency and telling them about our demands.”
HIGHLIGHTS OF HIRWA AND HEART MANIFESTO
- Hinjawadi is a semi-urban area and it should be brought under PMC.
- Piped drinking water should be supplied to all residents.
- Integrated garbage management system with proper collection and recycling should be installed.
- Rejuvenation of Mula river as it is causing severe health problems for the residents.
HIGHLIGHTS OF KHSWA
- Metro should pass from EON IT Park.
- Proper internal road system in Kharadi.
- Proper water supply from PMC as societies are still dependent on tankers.
