The metropolitan municipality is not even listening to the public representatives. In every compilation meeting, MLAs are repeatedly raising issues, but they are getting only assurances. Surat East MLA Arvind Rana once again raised the issue of illegal occupation of municipal lands in a meeting of compilation held under the leadership of Municipal Commissioner Banchanidhi Pani on Saturday. This time also he got only assurance. Arvind Rana has raised this issue in three meetings of the compilation.
Not only this, MLA of Katargam, Vinu Mordia has been raising the issue of illegal occupation of municipal lands for three years, but no action is being taken. It was told in the meeting of the Standing Committee of the Municipal Corporation that 90 lands of the Municipal Corporation have been illegally occupied, but there is no system to remove them permanently.
The Municipality removes the encroachment, but is captured again. Limbayat MLA Sangeeta Patil also raised the issue in Saturday’s meeting. Four years have been completed of the tenure of MLAs Arvind Rana, Vinu Mordia, Sangeeta Patil, Jhankhna Patel, but the solution to the problems raised by them has not yet been resolved.

Even today the same answer that is being given for seven years
Many MLAs have been raising some issues for the last seven years, but no result has come out. The MLAs are also troubled by this apathy of the MNP. The people’s representatives are not able to solve the problems of the people of their own area. MLAs Vinu Mordia, Jhankhna Patel, Sangeeta Patil, Arvind Rana have been presenting the issues repeatedly in their issue compilation meeting, but the Municipality has been ignoring it. Even today the same answer is given which is being given for seven years.
