On Tuesday, September 21, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray urged that the families from the tribal pada be rehabilitated on the five acres of land reserved for the state’s anti-terror unit ‘Force One’ at Goregaon East.

According to a report in Indian Express, CM Thackeray held a meeting on the issue attended by the Home Minister Dilip Patil along with senior government officials from the Home Department and Housing Department and elected local representatives.

Meanwhile, Force One, set up after the Mumbai terror attacks, has been given space in the Mumbai suburbs for training and exercise. There are three padas and some families including tribal and non-tribal live there. “The MHADA should appoint a consultant for the construction of houses for the tribal families and finalize the plan of the houses and complete the next process as soon as possible,” said CM.

On the other hand, earlier on Monday, September 20, Maharashtra Tourism Minister Aaditya Thackeray called for designing a quick response or QR code to identify buildings in Mumbai where all eligible residents have been fully vaccinated against the deadly coronavirus.

Moreover, the Shiv Sena leader was speaking at a review meeting called to seek inputs for drawing up a strategy to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic, increase vaccination and control vector-borne diseases in Mumbai.

According to reports, a statement issued by the minister's office said the Aaditya Thackeray had requested the Brihanamumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to create a special logo with a QR code that could be displayed at the entry gates of residential and commercial buildings.
