In June16th 2017, Mrs. Amruta Fadnavis, the wife of the then Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Mr. Devendra Fadnavis was kind to meet River Marchers and keenly heard us out and showed immense interest in our work. She arranged for meetings with the Municipal Commissioner, Mr. Ajoy Mehta in the presence of the Chief Minister and the then Minister of State Finance, Planning and Finance and other officials of MCGM.
On International Yoga Day, June 21st 2017, Mrs. Fadnavis visited Sanjay Gandhi National Park and spent four hours with the River Marchers, personally saw first hand the condition of the Dahisar river and drove all along the river right upto Kandarpada, Dahisar. She then had a look at the condition of the mangroves which were being encroached by the builders and the very poor condition of the depleting mangroves. She promised full support in this issue.
