Former MVA minister and Yuva Sena chief Aditya Thackeray met Mumbai Police Commissioner Vivek Phansalkar on Wednesday to discuss rehabilitation of police personnel in Worli BDD chawl redevelopment.

The Maha Vikas Aghadi government had put emphasis on redevelopment of police estates, he said after the meeting. The government had initiated police housing projects in Worli, Mahim and Marol, Thackeray said.

“Police personnel should be given 500 square foot homes as per the earlier MVA policy for redevelopment of BDD chawls. The project has been delayed and police families are suffering. The transit period should be reduced and new homes should be redeveloped at a faster pace,” he said.

The former minister also raised the issue of growing traffic and people’s habit of driving on the wrong side of the road.

“I requested the police chief to take strict action against the menace of wrong side driving in Mumbai. Several other issues related to police welfare were also raised,” he said.

Recently a woman, Pooja Sangoi, was stopped for riding her scooter on the wrong side. She abused the policewoman who stopped her, Manisha Gaikwad, and ran over her foot, resulting in fracture. Sangoi is yet to be arrested.
