The Tea Stall Owners Welfare Association is organising a special awareness campaign for the safety of pedestrians. The event aims at reducing the number of pedestrian accidents and will be held from 6.30am till 8.30 am on Sunday morning.

“Yeoor is a small area and the roads are also not very wide, thus making it difficult for motorists as well as pedestrians. There are instances of double parking on the road, motorists driving rashly or without helmets. There are very few pedestrians who know that ideally one should be walking on the right side of the road, towards the traffic. We will be raising awareness on these issues in the presence of forest officials and traffic officers,” said Biju Nair, president of Tea Stall Owners Welfare Association.

According to the plan, people dressed as Yamraj will stop those flouting rules and hand out flowers with awareness messages. The association also plans to raise awareness about the perils of drink driving. “As people have access to use the forest area, it is essential to ensure that it is being maintained. Plastic should not be disposed in such places,” said a volunteer.

    BJP legislator from Bandra West and Shiv Sena's bete noire,, Mumbai Ashish Shelar, is likely to take over as the BJP's Mumbai unit chief. It's crucial for BJP's continued success in Maharashtra to wrest BMC from the Sena, and they think Shelar, who has been kept out of the cabinet is the man for the job.
