Ghaywan appeals to CM to work for drought affected people

Thursday, April 28, 2016

“Masaan" director, Neeraj Ghaywan has appealed to the Maharashtra Chief Minister, Devendra Fadnavis, to provide better facilities to those who have migrated to the city from drought-affected areas of the state.

The National Award-winning director, along with a friend, visited migrants from Marathwada living currently in Mumbai and was distressed to see them struggle for food, water and shelter in the hot weather.

"Dear Sir @Dev_Fadnavis, my account of the drought hit Marathwada migrants living in Mumbai. Needs your attention!," he tweeted along with the link of his Facebook post of his experience.

He also shared a few pictures from his visit on his Facebook page. "These pictures might seem like they are from Latur or Beed or any of the drought affected areas. But, this is in Bombay. Yes, in your neighbourhood. When I read the post shared by Anurag Kashyap (original post by Rahul Narvekar) on migrant farmers in Ghatkopar, I wanted to go there and see for myself," he began.

"My friend, Randeep Kumar Jha and I went there to witness a harrowing view of migration and what this water crisis is doing to people. Most of them are from Nanded and Latur. There were mostly women when we were there."

Ghaywan wrote, "The place is dirty and has pigs and other animals rummaging (see pics). One man I met, said he didn't need anything, but all he needs is place to stay. He has been coming here to stay for the past ten years. He said he couldn't live like this..."
