Mumbai

  1. Stop chasing vanity projects like coastal roads and sea links — invest more in public transport which benefit the masses. Get the metros completed on time, figure out feeder bus routes (love the fact that we are going electric) and allied transportation methods.
  2. Focus on health infrastructure — the pandemic should have spurred us in this respect. Infrastructure in terms of hospitals with affordable care, clinics for regular ailments, research institutions to stay ahead of whatever it is lurking out there and innovation centres focussed on the unique needs of our city. We handled the pandemic quite well i must say (despite the mysterious drop in recovery numbers of late); i hope we don’t miss the bus in terms of the opportunity this affords us to move ahead.
  3. Sports and recreation facilities — we need more parks, more ground for children to play, walking and cycling tracks — just that citizens ned to spend more time outdoors with their families and loved ones. We need more libraries and reading rooms. I do hope that the government take up the task of truly honoring Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar by building the largest library in the world at the Indu Mills memorial site.
