      Dear Friend

      All the demands are great but dont you think that the smallest what we can ask these so called VVIP's and the Police / Traffic department is to consider that plights of the  AAM  ADMI  common citizen and take the aerial rout rather then creating the traffic blocks on the entire rout of these VVIP's.

      What traffic department did for PM's visit was not with the security concern as the other side of the road was just blocked and if the terrorist really wanted to attack the convey it would have been the easiest as they could have initiated the attack and just melted away on the road that was totally immobilised by the Traffic department by blocking all the vehicular movement.

      And think of the man-hour lost due to these stupid security concerns.

      If dedicated terrorist can strike parliament which have trained commandos as guards could not secure the place how does our police / traffic department can secure the entire length of the VVIP routs.

      I think even The Supreme Court has given some judgement that the traffic can not be stopped just because  of these  security concerns.

      And if these  Ministers and  so  called  VIPs  /  VVIPs  are so concerned  for their personal security when the AAM ADMI is totally left to the GOD's mercy, then they  should not  stand for the  elections.

      The Citizen's Action Group (CAG), constituted by the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Shri Deshmukh is to meet the Prime Minister, Shri Manmohan Singh, on his visit to Mumbai tomorrow.
      The CAG which claims to represent the citizens of Mumbai and their concerns has listed out only the following 5 demands for the city:
      An Indian Institute of Management (IIM) for the city
          b) Speedy implementation of the report to make Mumbai as an International Finance Centre (IFC)
          c) A larger role for the city in the expansion plans of the Mumbai Port Trust
          d) Expedite the MUTP II loan
          e) Constitutional amendments to allow Parents-Teachers Associations (PTA) vote in the electoral college of teachers.
      In order to ensure that the Prime Minister gets a balanced and representative view of what our city needs:
      a) how should the CM / CAG publicly display / discuss their demands, so as to receive feedback from a large group of citizens?
      b) which do you think are the important issues for Mumbai that the Prime Minister needs to know about so that Central funds can be prioritised accordingly and why?

        RAILWAY TRANSPORT The average resident of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region
        travels 26 km by train daily. The highest commuter density in second-class
        general compartments occurs in the Dahisar-Borivli segment; 9 persons occupy
        every square metre of space at any given time. The highest commuter density
        in second-class general compartments has been found to be 16 people
        occupying a square metre of space. The maximum flow of passengers is across
        Mahim; almost 14 lakh passengers travelling in both directions cross the
        station between 6 am and 11 am and again between 5 pm and 11 pm. The plan
        recommends inter-city railway terminals at Kalyan, Bhiwandi and Khandeshwar.
        The report estimates an expense of Rs 29,472 crore on the suburban railway
        system till 2021. The projected expense for Metro Railway till 2021 is Rs
        69,911 crore.

        ROAD TRANSPORT The plan recommends the extension of the Trans-Harbour Link
        (between Navi Mumbai and Sewri) to Worli. It suggests modern inter-city bus
        terminals be set up at Mumbai Central, Borivli, Virar and Thane. Dedicated
        bus lanes must be set up on the Fountain-Suman Nagar, airport-Kanjur
        Marg-Ambarnath-Titwala, Thane-Panvel, Dahisar-Virar and Bhiwandi-Kalyan
        routes. The report estimates an expense of Rs 46,840 crore (till 2021) for
        revamping the highway system. It estimates an expense of Rs 800 crore on the
        bus system. The expense for truck and inter-city bus terminals is projected
        to be Rs 2,038 crore (also includes plans for inter-city railway terminals).

        WATER TRANSPORT The plan suggests development of passenger transport on
        water; that will also boost revenue from tourism, fishing and other
        recreational activities. It estimates an expense of Rs 480 crore for
        passenger water transport projects. Development of infrastructure within
        Mumbai Port Trust jurisdiction will cost Rs 2,633 crore; similar expenses
        for the Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust and the Rewas-Aware port are pegged at
        Rs 11,804 crore and Rs 4,500 crore, respectively.

        AIR TRANSPORT Development of the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport,
        to ensure that it can handle the traffic volume projected for 2021, will
        cost Rs 9,900 crore. Development of the airport at Navi Mumbai is expected
        to cost Rs 4,500 crore.

        SEWERAGE 261 square kilometres of area within Brihanmumbai Municipal
        Corporation's jurisdiction is networked by sewers. The total length of the
        sewer network is 1,500 kilometres. The BMC area now has 63,610 public toilet
        seats. The sewerage and sanitation system will need an investment of Rs
        6,684 crore till 2021 in the BMC area. The storm-water drainage system will
        need an investment of Rs 1,800 crore.
