Coastal Road project: Fishermen accuse BMC of expediting reclamation, violating HC order
| Sunday | 14th April, 2019
The BMC-appointed contractor says they don’t have instructions from the civic body to stop work.”Deputy Municipal Commissioner, Coastal Road, R S Kuknoor did not respond to calls.
The BMC wants to finish the reclamation work before the next hearing.
AdvertisingOn Thursday, the high court ordered the BMC to stop reclamation work along the west coast from Marine Drive to Worli end of the sea link until April 23.
This amounts to blatant violation and contempt of court,” Wagh said.
Environmentalists and people fear the reclamation will destroy marine biology along the coast, besides endangering the livelihood of fishermen.
