“We are committed to assisting our people of Sattari in the face of adversity,” he said taking note of the news item ‘Mauxikar family lives in fear of overgrown banyan tree’ published by Herald dated May 14, 2022.

Rane said, “An overgrown banyan tree has fallen on the house of Sandhya Mauxikar from Mauxi panchayat. I have taken cognisance of the issue and assured her my total support in rebuilding her house before monsoon.”
