Anil Galgali had in a letter addressed to CM Devendra Fadnavis had demanded strict and immediate action under the MRTP Act against the violators and carrying out demolition of the violation. Galgali had also alleged in that letter that several officer's of the department were hand in glove and were adopting delaying tactics for the purpose of securing approvals through regularisation proposal, which seems to have succeeded, alleged Galgali. In a blatant display of disparity, the Mumbai Municipal corporation bulldozes the structure's of the poor Slum dwellers and in the other side works towards regularising the illegal Construction of the Rich and the Powerful, lamented Anil Galgali.
