Minister of state for urban development Bhaskar Jadhav said that 1,830 of the 3,705 mobile phone towers in the city are illegal.
“They did not come up overnight. The civic officers failed to act and electricity is being provided to these towers. We will take action against those who are responsible,” he said.
The issue was raised by NCP MLC Prakash Binsale who highlighted the suspected ill-effects of radiation from these towers.
