It was a day of celebration for the residents of Kalina who will now finally have their own market, with the issues surrounding its five year stop -work being resolved. This evening, I met Revenue Minister Balasaheb Thorat, Municipal Commissioner Sitaram Kunte, the residents of Kalina and the vicinity fisher folk to resolve this matter.
This had been a very sensitive matter for the Kalina residents as there was no market in its vicinity and the fisher folk were sitting on the street outside the market. The fisher women too had been on a chain fast in protest and for the market work to start. Today theirs and the residents of Kalina’s struggle came to a fruitful end.
