In August 2019 River March met Mr. Aditya Thackeray who was then the Yuva Sena Leader of Shiv Sena at his Shiv Sena Bhavan at Dadar. We presented before him the issues regarding the pollution of Dahisar and Poisar river. We told him about our cleaning drives at Kranti nagar, Kandivali East and our fight against the pollution of Dahisar river by the Tabelas. We sought his support for tree plantation, prevention of pollution of river, and against the concretization of Dahisar and Poisar rivers. He appreciated the work done by River March and gave his support.
On Monday February 17th 2020, due to the efforts of Dahisar Corporator, Ms. Sheetal Mhatre, a team of River March member met Mr. Aditya Thackeray, now the Minister of Tourism and Environment in Maharashtra Government at his office at Mantralaya.
We placed before him the issue regarding pollution of Dahisar river by the Tabela owners, the concretization of Poisar and Dahisar rivers. We also gave him our new proposals under ROAD MARCH on reducing traffic congestion of roads, on reducing noise and air pollution, about the use of vacant Octroi lands at Dahisar, Mulund and Airoli for making of Integrated Transport Hub. We also placed before him our vision of making Mumbai City into a City of dreams with infrastructure and facilities for it to become Olympic Ready City by 2028 under #MUMBAI MARCH . We also invited Mr. Thackeray to be our Chief Guest at our #MUMBAIMARCH ONLINE event on Sunday March 1st 2020 at Prabodhan Thackeray Natya Mandir, Borivali West. Through Online we plan to reach out to all Mumbai citizens and join us to make our Mumbai City our City of Dreams.
