‘Expedite super-specialty hospital project in Bhandup’

MNS legislator Shishir Shinde, who represents the suburb, raised a calling attention motion objecting to delays in construction of the hospital.

Chief minister  Prithviraj Chavan said in the legislative assembly Thursday that directives would be issued to municipal commissioner Sitaram Kunte to expedite work for construction of a super-specialty hospital in the eastern suburb of Bhandup.

MNS legislator Shishir Shinde, who represents the suburb, raised a calling attention motion objecting to delays in construction of the hospital. Shinde alleged that there had been ‘unreasonable and avoidable delays’ in tendering for appointment of a technical consultant for the project.

With no government-run super-specialty facility available in Bhandup, patients have to travel to the island city for the same. After speaker Dilip Walse-Patil sought expedition of the hospital project, Chavan said directives in this regard would soon be issued to Kunte. Walse-Patil later also asked the state to ensure that Kunte convened a meeting with Shinde and other elected representatives on the matter.
