Unfortunately, the state’s continuous directives on swine flu scare ended up in robbing the spirit of Independence Day celebrations especially for city schools that remained shut on the day.

    NMMC Standing Committee Chairman Sandeep Naik filed his nominations as the NCP-Congress candidate from Airoli constituency. Till the last minute the NCP party had not made any formal announcement about his candidature but like we said earlier, there is no other leader with an impeccable track record of personal conduct, public work like that of Sandeep Naik. Also the resources and mass following of Ganesh Naik are needed to take on the Shiv Sena BJP alliance candidate Vijay Chougule from Airoli. Hundreds of party workers and corporators arrived outside Saraswati Vidyalaya at Airoli - the nomination center for Airoli constituency in support of Sandeep Naik's candidature.

In lieu of the upcoming state assembly elections, he visited the various Navratri mandals of the node to seek the blessings of the Goddess Durga. At the same time he also visited household durga idols and interacted with the people. The locals showed their gratitude to this young leader and welcomed him with shawls, bouquets and smiles.

  9. Grassroots presence holds key- Ganesh Naik
    NCP which has 48 corporators out of total 95 in NMMC enjoys stronghold at the civic level since party has representative in almost every part of the city. In 2005 civic polls, NCP contested without alliance and received 1,44,000 votes from across the city which is almost three times more than their opponents.
    "Our strength is more than our opponents. During 2005 civic elections, we received 78,000 votes in Belapur while in Airoli we got 66,000 votes, while Shiv Sena and Congress received 15,000-18,000 votes in both the regions. This indicates that our presence is much more than them. Besides, after coming to power, we have processed and carried out developmental works worth Rs 10,000 crore. All these factors will definitely work in our favour," senior NCP leader from the city.
    However, this assembly election is witnessing many changes in political circle, especially in Belapur constituency where sitting MLA Ganesh Naik is contesting as NCP-Congress alliance candidate and has been pitted against renowned builder and BJP-Shiv Sena candidate Suresh Haware. Initially, this election seemed an easy victory for Naik.

  10. Ganesh Naik appreciated the honor given to him by the Rajasthani community

  11. 'Sandeep Naik have worked at the grassroot level for city'
    Sandeep Naik, the youngest contestant from the satellite city - and the son of sitting MLA, Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik - is a picture of confidence. It's nine in the morning; he has already been up for three hours, knocked off a series of meetings and is all set for another 16-hour work day on the campaign trail.
    It is not my decision or the family's decision, but the insistence of the people that has lead me to contest the Assembly election. In fact, I was quite content working at the corporation level and given the aspirations of many candidates, the demands of other hopefuls, I was not even thinking about contesting. But, our party leaders - and all the people - thought that it was time for me to take up larger responsibilities, expand my reach and serve people on a bigger scale.
    Having said that, Naiksaab's original Belapur Assembly constituency got split into five constituencies, post delimitation, with two of them falling under Navi Mumbai. Since he has done a lot of work in this constituency over the past 20 years, it makes sense for his party to get its own MLA elected in the newly carved constituency.

  12. Ganesh Bhagat joined in the presence of NCP leader Ganesh Naik
    Nerul resident Ganesh Bhagat, first cousin of Namdeo Bhagat has charged the former Navi Mumbai unit chief of Congress with keeping all high profile posts within the family.
    " Ganesh Bhagat is accusing others of dynastic politics, but he is doing the same. He is keeping all designations with himself or giving it to his close ones. Both, he and his wife are corporators while he was also Navi Mumbai Congress chief, is a CIDCO director and member of NMMC Standing Committee. If he speaks of having a big heart, then why is he keeping all the posts with himself? Similarly, he has appointed his own brother Rajendra as deputy chief of Navi Mumbai Youth Congress," stated Ganesh Bhagat, who joined NCP in the presence of NCP leader Ganesh Naik on Monday.

  13. Ganesh Naik has a vision for Navi Mumbai
    Ganesh Naik's vision, conception and development inspiring leadership has led to several significant projects being taken up by Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) and civic services being rendered.

  15. Sandeep Naik promises safety, security, peace and harmony to Airoli
    In the past, citizens of Airoli have often voiced this fear. Hearing these residents of Airoli, it’s not difficult to assess what residents of Airoli expect from their candidate in these elections and perhaps that’s why Sandeep Naik promises safety, security, peace and harmony to Airoli since the official contest began post the nomination filing ceremony as well. Besides his promise of making Airoli terror-free, Sandeep Naik’s fiery speech during R R Patil’s visit also touched upon the achievements of the ruling NCP in NMMC – from Morbe Dam, to providing municipal services and amenities to slums, villages and city settlements, school vision and making 100 beds hospital in Nerul and Airoli. On a secular note, he spoke of how his father Ganesh Naik has always taught them to practice the religion of humanity.

  16. NMMC Standing Committee approved the bid of Yashraj Infrastructure to re- construct three toilets
    Another problem that haunts the Yadavnagar slums is filth and dirt so much that it’s difficult to imagine how humans can live here. Filth from gutters borders the entrance of settlements and even pigs can be seen moving around. Locals say that at times pigs directly enter their homes. there is an urgent need to construct the toilets here as locals, including women and children have to climb hills to attend natures’ calls. Women shared how going is difficult when there are men leering at them. And like most NMMC toilets, even the existing ones have become victims of ill maintenance.
    The locals are however happy ever since the NMMC Standing Committee approved the bid of Yashraj Infrastructure to re- construct three toilets at the cost of Rs. 77 lacs 35 thousand 959. The three new toilets will come as a major relief to the locals and will solve one of their most burning issues. Standing Committee Chairman Sandeep Naik informed that while the toilets are needed, he has ordered the administration to take up the work for a school too at the earliest.

  17. Matang Community Announces Support To Ncp-congress Alliance

    Even after 61 years of Independence, the members of the Matang community have lived an underprivileged life. They have been struggling for equal status and rights in the society but the government have always eluded their aspirations. Perhaps seeing a ray of hope to in the form of NCP, the community has decided to pledge their support to the NCP-Congress alliance candidates from Belapur and Airoli Ganesh Naik and Sandeep Naik. The community’s National President Babasaheb Gople appealed to his community to vote for the NCP-Congress alliance.
    In the Thane district, the Matang community constitutes 5 lakh of the population and if this number is converted into votes then the NCP candidates do hold an upper hand in the state assembly elections.

Sandeep managed to get 79,075 votes out of the total 1,57,751 votes cast, while 67,118 voters favoured Chauguley.
    'Airoli strongman' Chauguley made a good start in the initial rounds by taking good lead; however as the counting went on, Sandeep covered up the gap and after the 22 rounds of the counting, it became clear that Sandeep would represent the Airoli constituency in the House for the next five years.
    The counting session was full of drama, in fact. Sandeep clinched 3,687 and 3,282 votes in seventh and eight rounds respectively, while Chauguley could garner 3,199 and 3,224 votes in those rounds. Still, at end of eighth round Chauguley had a lead of 815 votes. Thereafter, the margin remained neck-to-neck till the 14th round. However, from the 15th round onwards, Sandeep maintained a clear lead till the final round.

  21. The people of Navi Mumbai have due to the love and faith in Ganesh Naik’s victory
    Though, Naik enjoys strong voters base in Belapur, entry of the renowned builder Haware into politics around six months ago had led to few uncertainties in the constituency as the BJP along with ally Shiv Sena, ensured the saffron alliance left no stone unturned to see Naik's defeat. Besides, the last minute rebel by Bhagat and other city Congress corporators triggered speculations whether Naik would be able to make it to the House for the fourth term.
    Bhagat, was expected to eat into maximum of Naik's votes, but that could not be seen happening for the ex-Navi Mumbai Congress chief. On the other hand, MNS's Rajendra (Pappu) Mahale receiving votes close to 20,000, is considered as the crucial factor behind BJP-Sena losing the seat.
    "The victory is due to the love and faith people of Navi Mumbai have in me. People have elected me because of the hard work put by me and our activists for the city through corporation and other channels," said an elated Ganesh Naik. When asked whether the lead he took was up to the expectations, he said, "For me winning the election is more important. If the lead is not as per the expectation, then it's because of the non co-operation by some of the city Congressmen. However, we are happy with whatever support we received from others in the Congress party."

  22. The Sandeep Naiks' main poll plank was development
    The Naiks' main poll plank was development, with father and son repeatedly citing the Morbe Dam as a major achievement and promising more along the same lines.
    Other much-touted achievements include the 14-km ThaneBelapur Road Project, the only highway in the state on which no toll is levied, and the introduction of Volvo and CNG buses for public transport.
    The NMMC is also planning to earn carbon credit by reducing methane gas emissions and converting garbage into fuel and fertiliser.
    As for the future, the Naiks have promised an independent power generation project to ensure 24-hour power supply to the city.
    Other promises include more vertical growth, especially for dilapidated buildings and no increase in taxes.
    The purchase of Morbe has made the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation -- where the NCP is in power too -- the first in the country to own its own dam.
    With the pipelines ready, Navi Mumbai is now all set to receive 24x7 water supply, beating even neighbouring megalopolis Mumbai in this respect.

  23. The tradition of secularism & communal harmony is the hallmark of the Ganesh Naik family
    Ganesh Naik said that the voters of Navi Mumbai have proven that he is after all the people’s candidate. On the other hand all did not seem well in the Airoli constituency when the voting began.
    Only when counting of votes began from Koperkhairane and reached to sectors of Vashi and Turbhe, did Sandeep Naik overtake the saffron candidate and at the end of the 23 rounds of counting emerged as the winner with a lead of 11957 votes. The total votes that Sandeep Naik garnered were 79075 as against the 67118 garnered by Vijay Chougule. Post his victory, Sandeep Naik thanked voters who showed confidence in the party leadership of NCP.
    The tradition of secularism & communal harmony is the hallmark of the Naik family & it is being followed generation to generation. After the Lok Sabha elections, the state assembly elections had become the biggest challenge for the first family of Navi Mumbai. And neither the change mantra, nor dynastic rule or Congress rebels could change the results that have proven that the support to the Naik family is as heady and strong even now as it has been for 4 decades. Indeed Navi Mumbai's love affair with the Naik family continues.

  24. Sandeep Naik duo clean sweep in Navi Mumbai
    In what seemed like a neck-to-neck fight in the first 15 rounds of counting, the battle tilted heavily in favour of NMMC standing committee chairman Sandeep Naik. In the remaining eight rounds towards the end, Chougule suffered serious setbacks in Bonkode, Kopar Khairne and large parts of Vashi.
    Chougule, at one point, saw a lead of 2200 votes against Naik when votes from Airoli were being counted. In the end, however, out of the total of 1, 57,751 valid votes cast in the constituency, Naik got a lead of 11,957 votes. Naik got 79,075 votes while Chougule managed 67,118.
    When asked the reason for not securing a good number of votes from Airoli, Sandeep said, "All party workers have worked equally hard in all places. It is just natural that some people have a stronghold in certain areas. But since a majority of voters have shown trust in me, I will try to win over the rest of them too," Sandeep said.
