Locals oppose demolition of temporary road built for Kharghar ceremony

An official from CIDCO said that the Public Works Department (PWD) asked them to construct the makeshift road before the function and they are now asking to demolish it.

Kaushal Sharma, another Kharghar Forum member and a resident of sector 16, explains the rationale for a permanent wider bridge. “There is a very old Kopra bridge that stands on an iron pillar in the same area, which has only a single lane for motorists. Many years ago, another single-lane bridge was constructed on 21 pipelines so that the water flowing from Pandavkada waterfall during the monsoon can pass through easily. This bridge again has a capacity of only a single lane. Hence, the residents use the old bridge for entering the highway from Kharghar and the second bridge for entering Kharghar from the highway.” (Bachchan Kumar/ HT PHOTO))

Apart from Dharmadhikari “expressing grief” over the incident, no other communication was made, nor did he visit families that had suffered loss. His silence has not affected the belief of his followers – many have said they “were saved from any problems that could have arisen from sunstroke by the strength of faith” (HT Photo)
