Citing cricketer Chandrasekhar and dancer Sudha Chandran as examples of individuals who overcame their disabilities and came forward on their own, she expressed her belief that such eminent personalities would emerge from Navi Mumbai. She praised Navi Mumbai for securing the third rank in the country in terms of cleanliness and for coming first, even the differently-abled persons spontaneously spread the message of cleanliness through the walkathon.
