8,000 citizens object to changes made by the state government in the Development Plan for Baner and Balewadi

The Green Pune Movement (GPM) has set a goal of garnering the support of at least 1.5 lakh citizens against the 46 changes carried out in the DP.

The modifications include dereservation of over 90 per cent of the plots earmarked for public amenities and facilities like schools, hospitals, parks, gardens and libraries, as well as roads and sewage and drainage projects.

Citizens’ groups and NGOs that have come together under the banner of the Green Pune Movement (GPM) on Saturday submitted a list of 8,100 citizens who have objected to the changes made by the state government in the Development Plan for Baner and Balewadi. The list was handed over to Sadhana Naik, deputy director, town planning department.

December 1, the last day for giving in suggestions and objections:

Satish Khot, president of the National Society for Clean Cities, a part of the GPM, told TOI that all groups involved in the campaign are working in full swing in different parts of the city to seek the public’s support against the changes.

“We are not sure how many names have been submitted in all so far. But we hope to reach a substantial tally by December 1, the last day for giving in suggestions and objections,” Khot said.

He pointed out that ‘mohalla’ committees and NGOs working in various fields were reaching out to vast numbers of people by targeting housing societies, multiplexes, gardens, jogging parks and senior citizens groups, among others. “In fact, we have also got a good response from rickshaw drivers,” Khot added.
