MALAD IS HAWKERS' PARADISE
Hawkers are created maily because of two reasons, irrational
economic policies and non-implementation of existing laws. For both
the reasons, corrupt politicians and public servants are responsible.
In 1985, Mumbai High Court had directed the BMC to regulate
hawking and no-hawking but for BMC regulating means to allow more
and more hawkers on every space and it continues unabatted.
Hawkers underweigh their goods and frequent fights are seen between
them and buyers.
Malad has turned Hawkers' Paradise as all govt. agencies have disregarded
the Supreme Court Order even on purely no-hawking zones. Only by
visiting this place one will realise as to how gravest damage is
done to public interests by the corrupt rascals in public service.
Huge population/heavy traffic has created chaos as no space is left
for pedestrians to walk safely. All concerned govt. depts. have
failed in providing good governance. THe main law enforcing agencies,
BMC & Police are silent observers to peoples' hardships and
on questing them they come out with all irresponsible arguments.
This makes people to believe that HAPTAS reach up to the
highest level in govt. Public servants do not work with planning
as it leaves very little scope for corruption. Not a single civic
service is satisfactory in Malad. Assurances of good governance
by BMC's Asst. Commissioner in Malad ward office have remained on
The entire scenerio raises one question as to where Mumbai is heading-
to become Shanghai or Mahaslumbai ??? If lawlessness is the progress,
why not construct more footover bridges along the railway tracks
for more and more hawkers ?
Will all the guardians of Mumbai wake up before it is too late
? If they are helpless, Mumbai must handed over to Military for
