The pride of Mumbai, a Shivaji Park is mainly knows for The Great Maratha king Charrtapathi Shivaji Maharaj. In a RTI query, MCGM admit that they Have no such Record of Shivaji Maharaj statue when it was install at Shivaji Park.
We asked Municipal Secretary's dept that When was the Park named as Shivaji Park and when was statue of Charathapathi Shivaji Maharaj is installed . We also ask the history of shivaji park. The Municipal Secretary dept in a reply clearly admit that they have no such information and detail on Record. They give a copy of notice of motion dated 10 th May 1927 which is proposed by Mr G B Nare,seconded by Mrs Avantikabai Gokhalay. Municipal Corporation modified with permission that in order to commemorate the tricentenary of Shivaji which Falls in coming May, the Mahim Park be named 'Shivaji Park'
Its is So shocking and calls for inquiry that the MCGM does not have any record of installation of statue of Charrtapathi Shivaji Maharaj.Every record of notice of motion, amendment and statue of Historical leaders should be maintain by MCGM and its duty of officers. This shows lack of interest and negligence towards Great legendary personality
