An intellectual ceremony marked the 11th Foundation Day of Indian Merchants Chambers at Vashi. State Environment, Excise and Labour Minister Ganesh Naik and VC and MD Maharashtra Airport Development Company R C Sinha graced the dais.
The highlight of 11th Foundation Day celebrations of IMC were the Jewel of Navi Mumbai awards that the IMC presented to Vijay Patil – President of Dr. D Y Patil Sports Academy for giving Navi Mumbai it’s first internationally acclaimed stadium, Nalin Shah – CMD Shah Builders for doing phenomenal work in the construction industry, R C Sinha - VC and MD Maharashtra Airport Development Company for his work in making Navi Mumbai when he was MD of CIDCO and State Environment, Excise and Labour Minister Ganesh Naik – for being the architect of Navi Mumbai and leader of the masses. We spoke to some of the awardees post the ceremony.
Ganesh Naik’s speech was everything that one expects a leader to give in the election year. Completely driven by passion and determination, the leader shared with the audience the non-political rapport that he has had with industries of the Thane Belapur Belt for 38 years.
