Excellent idea of making this island as a tourist spot. Local people will benefit from the development of the region and city people enjoy the spot as picnic spot. Well done. Connectivity with proper roads, lighting, bridges and bus services need to be provided. Special thanks to our beloved Janardhan Tonse and Commissioner and all others.
