Project Affected People (PAP) of 95 villages of Navi Mumbai had observed a black day on March 17 which is also the establishment day of City and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO).

Now, over one lakh villagers will hit the streets on June 24.

The PAP from Navi Mumbai have been demanding to name the proposed Navi Mumbai International Airport (NMIA) after late socialist D B Patil which is reportedly not accepted by the CIDCO.

For the last two years, PAP of Navi Mumbai under the banner of the All-Party Action Committee (APAC) have been protesting against the state government and CIDCO for not giving the name of NMIA after Patil, a PAPs leader.

Against this backdrop, a meeting was held at Nhave early this week in the presence of BJP Panvel taluka president Arunsheth Bhagat. During the meeting, APAC’s joint secretary Rajesh Gaikar appealed to the members to participate in making the agitation a success.

Thakur, Sadashiv Thakur, Tukaram Mokal, Ananta Thakur, Ramdas Thakur were present on the occasion.
