There is something fishy in the fires & building collapses in the heritage area precinct. Looks like it is part of the Govt plan to convert the area into a posh, glitzy & ugly Times Square complex and damage the looks like it was done with the beautiful CBD Belapur. Fires & Mangrove destruction are normally carried in the night or early hours.

Mhada failed to demolish the C1 category building because it was waiting for a fire to douse the building and collapse on itself without any cost being incurred by it!
