Sandeep Naik resolves issues related to MSEDC

Taking serious note of various problems faced by residents of Airoli and Ghansoli, MLA Sandeep Naik has stepped in to get the same resolved as early as possible. Residents of the area have complained about several problems being faced due to open distribution point (DP) boxes, damaged overhead cables and disproportionate electricity bills. Following the complaints, Naik called on senior officials at Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company (MSEDC) to discuss the issues.

“The meeting was held to solve the problems as early as possible. The anti-social elements are taking advantage of load shedding in the area. There has been a steep increase in the cases of chain snatching and other petty crimes during power cuts. Moreover, open DPs and dangerously hanging power cables have increased risk of fatal accidents,” Naik said.

He added that all the complaints of residents about dangerously in stalled transformers, open sub-station and defunct street lights in MIDC area would soon be attended to. It has been decided to hold monthly meetings of people’s representatives, MSEDC officials and general public to review situation.

According to MSEDC Superintending Engineer Dinesh Saboo, “The functioning of the company is affected due to staff crunch, scarcity of funds and long pending demands to create new sub-stations and sub-division.” Naik suggested that the company should priorities the work and use the fund of Rs 205 crore allotted to the department by state government.

Naik also suggested the officials to hold division wise meetings with general public to attend complaints, to form a coordination committee comprising company officials and residents, repair the open distribution points immediately and to convert overhead cobles into underground. “The civic authorities have started the work of underground cables on war footing, But the cooperation form MSEDC is not as desired. The officials from MSEDC is not as desired. The officials from NMMC, CIDCO and MIDC would be deputed on the work to expedite it,” Naik Said.

Saboo said the company would spend Rs 25 Crore on the replacement of old power cables in the city. The work on underground power cables has already started at Airoli, Vashi gaon, Koparkhairane and Nerul which will be completed in six months. “The total cost of the project is Rs 211 crore. The civic body will bare the cost of conversion while MSEDC will bare the cost of repairs,” Saboo said.

Navi Mumbai Yacht Club With Be Trendsetter - Says President Of The Club Mla Sandeep Naik


The Tendulkars, Kartikeyans, Sanias and Sainas have become sports icons that have boosted sports in India like never before. But there still are a few sports where we are yet to make a mark and water sports is one of them. The main reason for this is that there is no infrastructure of facilities available for aspiring sailors to learn this sport. However, this week Navi Mumbai became the first among neighboring cities Mumbai, Thane and Raigad to start its own Yacht Club. The club will aim training sailing enthusiasts for international level sports like Olympics.

Water sports are one of the most exciting forms of sports around the world. It’s one sport that seems to be celebrating the bounties of nature like water resources. However, to make a world class player in the sport, there is more than just a beautiful coast that you need – excellent infrastructure, equipments and professional training are the other requisites to name a few. Not to forget it involves a whole lot of investment as well. The intricacies of promoting the sports are that; there are no yacht clubs in this region to make training in water sports available for sailing enthusiasts. It is here that Navi Mumbai has become “a first again” by beginning the “Navi Mumbai Yacht Club” – a venture of Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik’s vision and his younger son MLA Sandeep Naik’s efforts. Our curiosity to find out more about the club landed us early morning on a boat with MLA Sandeep Naik – who perhaps, you don’t know, is a skilled sailor himself ! After the adventurous hi-speed trip in the sea area, we sat up for an exclusive chat with the young MLA.

The advantage for Navi Mumbai is that it has a beautiful coast. Unfortunately it has not been utilized to promote water sports yet. The founders of Navi Mumbai Yacht Club – Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik and MLA Sandeep Naik want to train the youth of the Agri and Koli community in the sports because these communities are completely cut out for water sports at the root level.

The Navi Mumbai Yacht Club has taken Malav Shroff as coach – the only Indian to represent India in Olympics in this sport in Athen 2004. The training of Malav Shroff clubbed with world class infrastructure will definitely create players who will represent India in Olympics, says MLA Sandeep Naik. What’s more? The Navi Mumbai Yacht Club will also give financial backing where needed to those having the skills and talents in water sports. Students from not only Navi Mumbai but Mumbai, Thane, Raigad and other nearby cities too will be invited to be a part of the club. Besides this, three training camps in a year and a spate of boats and yachts are sure to make Navi Mumbai an attractive and popular destination for sailing enthusiasts from all over the country. MLA Sandeep Naik believes; like all the other Navi Mumbai patterns that are being replicated by neighboring cities, the Navi Mumbai Yacht Club pattern too will be replicated from regional to the national level.

Well, when you have the vision of Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik working and MLA Sandeep Naik executing, there’s no doubt that the Navi Mumbai Yacht Club will become Navi Mumbai’s pride and other cities envy.

Green Man Sandeep Naik Gives Green Hope To Navi Mumbai – That’s Our Environment Day Special Report

MLA Sandeep Naik is on a green mission of greening Navi Mumbai with his green movement. As Green Hope enters its third year – the movement seems to have become bigger and better. On World Environment Day the youth MLA kicked off his Green Mission. NMTV News met on the “Green Movement 2010” that is has started this year with our special report “Green Man Sandeep Naik gives Green Hope to Navi Mumbai”. 

A MLA cleaning and sweeping a bus depot of his constituency early morning on World Environment Day – something that you might have never seen or heard but that’s the difference MLA Sandeep Naik is trying to make in Navi Mumbai. While Green Hope’s Green Movement 2010 that MLA Sandeep Naik has announced will get started in full swing from the 15th of this month, the event was given a start on the occasion of World Environment Day. MLA Sandeep Naik began the movement with a message of “Clean Navi Mumbai, Green Navi Mumbai.” He was accompanied by Mayor Sagar Naik. Citizens participated with the MLA and Mayor for tree plantation drive. 

Green Hope never started on a small note. It started with a bang in 2008 when MLA Sandeep Naik – the President of Green Hope started the green mission of planting a lakh trees in Navi Mumbai. 

In its second year, Green Hope took a step forward and took up the challenge of planting 2 lakh trees along with mangrove plantation. 

In its third year, the green mission started by MLA Sandeep Naik is all set to become bigger and better. MLA Sandeep Naik says that this year, the Green Hope has embarked upon a green movement that aims at planting 2 lakh trees and involving citizens of all ages in the movement. 

It’s not easy as it sounds because tree plantation involves not just planting but nurturing it later so that it does not die. MLA Sandeep Naik says that to achieve this, the most important thing is to involve citizens in the drive. Only then the trees planted live and play the role of lungs in urban cities like Navi Mumbai. 

To ensure that citizens of all ages become a part of his green movement, Green Hope has planned several activities as well. These range from essay and drawing to photography competitions that will be exhibited for all to see at the landmark Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Chowk at Vashi. 

Green hope’s movement will start in full swing from the 15th of June and will culminate with a honoring ceremony for greeners who will participate in the green movement with a green passion. 

MLA Sandeep Naik says that Green Hope will work to make Navi Mumbai be known as a “Green City”. 

On World Environment Day, ask the Green Man of Navi Mumbai what he thinks is the biggest challenge the world faces and the youth MLA echoes what experts around the world are saying – it is “global warming”. 

There aren’t many MLAs in the state today who are working to make a difference to environment or creating awareness on global warming. Probably on the lines of America’s former Vice President Al Gore, Green Man Sandeep Naik is determined to give a green hope to make Navi Mumbai a green city ! Sana Warsia – NMTV News.

Is NMMC ready for the rains

Airoli MLA Sandeep Naik inspects ongoing pre-monsoon works

With monsoon round the corner, the city is likely to face water-logging and flooding as the civic authorities have not yet completed the pre-monsoon cleaning and desisting of drainage system.The situation is likely to turn critical once monsoon hits the city. AC-cording to information, the civic authorities have completed around 40% cleaning and desisting work while majority of nullahs and storm water drainages still remain to be cleaned. Alarmed by the situation and probable disaster, MLA Sandeep Naik on Friday toured the city and inspected various places known for flooding and water logging. “So far the pace of the word is satisfactory and the entire nullahs and drainages in the city would be cleaned before monsoon,” he said. However, he pointed out that there was serious lack of coordination among various agencies like NMMC, CIDCO, MIDC and MSEB. “Since the storm water flows into municipal area from MIDC and CIDCO area, the respective authorities must clean the drainages in their areas to prevent water logging in civic area,” MLA Sandeep Naik said.According to sources, though the desisting and cleaning work has begun in various parts of the city, it is too little and too late. “Given the pace of work in some areas like MIDC, there are all possibilities that areas along Thane-Belapur Road would get flooded as the storm water will flow from the hills in MIDC area,” sources said. President of Small Scale Industries Association Kiran Churi expressed that since nothing has been done in MIDC area, there are all possibilities of water logging and heavy damages during monsoon. “The authorities have completely ignored the area and should ensure that all the nullahs and drainages are cleaned before monsoon,” Churi said. When contacted, City Engineer Mohan Dagaonkar was not available for comment.
