Inaugurated the Gazdarbandh Pumping Station today. Extremely happy to do so, as with this pumping station, a lot of Bandra West, Juhu, Santacruz will have relief from waterlogging. This station can pump out 36,000 litres of water per second to help us give relief to Mumbaikars. pic.twitter.com/MjxTzV3I5N— Aaditya Thackeray (@AUThackeray) June 27, 2019

This is what we do to our beloved city and the @mybmc cleans for us! This is one chamber at one pumping station in one nullah. Imagine the rest. Let’s not do this to our city. Let’s not litter. pic.twitter.com/tSspOFb5WW— Aaditya Thackeray (@AUThackeray) June 27, 2019
While sharing the picture of one of the chambers of the pumping station which was filled with plastic litter, Aaditya captioned it: This is what we do to our beloved city and the BMC cleans for us! This is one chamber at one pumping station in one nullah. Imagine the rest. Let's not do this to our city. Let's not litter.
In the post, Aaditya is seen requesting the citizens of Mumbai asking them not to litter. This isn't the first time that Aditya Thackery has spoken about civic issues and responsibilities.

Why do we blame @mybmc for everything?— àªÂà«Âàª¶àª²à«Âàª¶ Tiwari.ðÂÂ®ðÂÂ³ (@kaushut) June 27, 2019
We people of Mumbai are responsible for that. We should not throw garbages anywhere.
Dear Aditya, need Govt push so big companies set collection centers across nooks n corners. Its actually simple through regular Raddi Wallas by giving Technical platform for collection and selling back to big players like Coke, Pepsi, Parle etc. Let's make #SwiggyZomatoOfWaste— Vivek Raghuwanshi (@VRaghuwanshi) June 27, 2019
Perhaps Shaming Littering! Fines by police! USA went hard on pollution in 70’s campaigns. The sense of pride to not litter was instilled for years. POINT IT OUT! Point at people who trash India. Every Body point it out. Shame them a bit. They will stop ðÂÂÂðÂÂ»— jim Dunne (@JimDunne64) June 27, 2019
Ban plastic completely. We need somebody to put à¤¡à¤Âà¤¡à¤¾ on us all the time.— BIREN BHATT (@birenbhatt) June 27, 2019
Teaching of simple civic sense is becoming more and more important now. Rather than fining citizens they should be asked to do community service or take cleanliness drives with authority for monitoring.— Darsshan Udaani (@darsshanudaani) June 27, 2019
Dear Mumbaikars please cooperate & don't throw waste on road.— Amit Bhadricha - à¤Â à¤®à¤¿à¤¤ à¤à¤¾à¤¦à¥Âà¤°à¥Âà¤Âà¤¾ (@AmitBhadricha) June 27, 2019

Fine should be levied. No litter sign boards should be installed. Else the mess continues and nobody seems to care— vidya dilip (@vidyaad) June 27, 2019
