Hadapsar constituency’s Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA) Chetan Tupe has written a letter to the Pune district collector requesting him to build an oxygen generating plant at the Annasaheb Magar hospital in Hadapsar.
He said, “Pune city, infact the entire country is experiencing oxygen scarcity. Pune is going through a critical phase. In order to resolve the problem, I have asked the Collector to utilise funds from my Local Area Development Funds to build one 4 tonne oxygen generator or two 2 tonne oxygen generators, which can be built at the earliest. Annasaheb Magar Hospital has got sanction of 100 beds. But with no oxygen supply. Hence, I decided to offer help from development funds. I am hoping that within next one month the oxygen plant shall be installed.”
