- Chandivli locals had been lodging complaints about the garbage spot for several months
- Following the Gandhigiri demonstration by locals, BMC officer assured action
- On Sunday morning, a group of locals took it upon themselves to clean the spot
While Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) officials were busy cleaning beaches alongside CM Eknath Shinde during the Swachhata Hi Seva campaign on Sunday, residents of Chandivli took matters into their own hands by cleaning a persistent garbage spot in their area. Despite numerous complaints, the civic spot had failed to address the issue. This problematic spot is located in front of the Meenatai Thackeray ground and the civic maternity home in Chandivli.
