Staff Reporter,

A delegation lead by senior corporator Abha Pande met Municipal Commissioner Ashwin Mudgal regarding spreading of dengue and swine flu in different parts of the city. She alleged that Health Department of NMC has miserably failed to control the diseases and suggested to take help of State Government to combat the situation.

Abha Pande said, the Health department does not have proper medicine to handle the issue. The city has only one dengue test kit. The open plots are breeding sites of dengue, she alleged. She said, the civic body does not have proper arrangement for controlling the dengue menace, therefore, the patients are compelling to go to private hospital for treatment. The private hospitals are literally looting them.

She discussed with Commissioner more than 30 minutes. Commissioner has assured her to organise a high level meeting to control the dengue and include her suggestions in the control operations. Kunjlata Gaur, Rohini Bhavalkar, Vishaka Samundre, Vaishali Nandekar, Pusphlata Borkar, Manisha Bhende, Varsha Bele, Komal Kukde and others were present.
