Later this week, residents of some posh western suburbs will have an opportunity to grill the state on the security concerns they have been raising since the November 26 terror attacks.
Chief Minister Ashok Chavan, who took over the reins of the state in the aftermath of the November shock, will interact with the residents of the Mumbai North Lok Sabha constituency on Thursday at Kamla Raheja College Hall in Juhu from 2.30 pm.
Congress state general secretary Sanjay Nirupam, the event organiser, said the programme was open to all people from the Mumbai North constituency.
The segment comprises of elite areas such as Juhu Vile Parle Scheme, Andheri and Lokhandwala Complex, and is home to film personalities, business tycoons and corporate executives.
After the November attacks, several well-off people, who usually remain reluctant to participate in social protests, had stood in demonstrations to raise their security concerns.
“After 26/11, the people want to know what measures the government is taking to secure their lives,” said Nirupam, who has invited activists, film stars and housing society executives. “They can pose queries, express anxieties and apprehensions to the CM.”
Chavan will address the gathering and later answer queries.
Educationist Leena Ashar, industrialist and social worker Jairaj Thakkar, filmmaker-activists Mahesh Bhatt and Ashok Pandit have confirmed their participation.
