BJP MLA Mahesh Landge has chosen to bring up the matter with Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis after it was purportedly the Center’s failure to reply to a request to rename the Bhosari station of Pune Metro.
Landge said that he will speak with Maha Metro representatives to ascertain the precise point at which the name change proposal is stalled. Following that, he will talk to Maharashtra Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis about the matter and encourage him to bring it up with the government.
When the Pune Metro service first began more than a year and a half ago, Maha Metro submitted a proposal to rename the Bhosari station as Nashik Phata. Shravan Hardikar, Managing Director of Maha Metro, stated that they had since followed up on the matter. They are awaiting the government’s directives in this regard.
Given Bhosari’s popularity as a suburb, Metro officials said that the comprehensive project report had recommended renaming the Nashik Phata station to that name. But according to Landge, Bhosari and Nashik Phata are 5 km apart. When travelers arrive at Nashik Phata with the intention of going to Bhosari, they discover that this is not the area they were expecting to visit. This confusion has lasted for a very long time. Landge is confident that the state government will take the issue up with the Center and have the name changed.
