<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>With eviction notices served to several occupants of properties in the city owned by the Mumbai Port Trust (MbPT), the occupants met NCP leader Sharad Pawar on Tuesday. The occupants have been living in fear of losing their houses since the MbPT started talking about redevelopment of their land.”We have met leaders of political parties in the past and will meet them in future too. We met Pawar because we hear about Burj Khalifa coming up on MbPT land and its redevelopment, but we are not told anything,” said Pervez Cooper, one of the affected persons who met the NCP leader.Those affected by the decision in the past have met politicians from Shiv Sena, Congress, even the BJP. “We were told that the issue will be looked at in a humanitarian way when we last met with Nitin Gadkari. We have someone whose mother has cancer; imagine what will happen if they have to run around for their home now,” said Cooper.”I myself have not received any notice, but people around me have received them. We want the issue to be heard,” said Isak Bhagwan who has a office in MbPT property.Sharad Pawar was unavailable for comment.
