Pune Pulse Siddharth Shirole

In an Open Forum Meeting held on Thursday, May 11 residents of the Aundh-Baner and Ghole Road ward office of Pune Municipal Corporation area voiced their concerns to MLA Siddharth Shirole regarding the lack of response from the civic body on various issues. Frustrated with the absence of elected representatives, residents sought support from Shirole, who assured them that he would act as a bridge between them and the administrative authorities.

Organized by BJP MLA Siddharth Shirole at the Aundh-Baner ward office in Pune, the meeting aimed to address the problems faced by citizens. Several issues were brought to light during the discussion. Vijay Jagtap from Bopodi raised concerns about the state of public toilets in the area, while Rohini, another resident of Aundh, emphasized the grave problems caused by water accumulation during unseasonal rains, which inconvenienced many residents. Furthermore, residents highlighted the presence of scrap vehicles, defacing the locality, and attracting anti-social elements.

Garbage collection and encroachment, perennial issues in the ward, were once again raised by the residents. Complaints were lodged regarding the Pune Municipal Corporation’s (PMC) inadequate responses to civic problems. Surekha Wakde expressed concerns about unclean chambers and drainage water entering homes in low-lying areas, stating that the issues had been raised repeatedly over the past decade.

Residents from the Deccan area also stressed the issue of encroachment on footpaths. Sulabha Kulkarni, a resident of Deccan, specifically highlighted the encroachment problem from FC Road to various lanes of Model Colony. Additionally, concerns were raised about the need for tree cutting to prevent mishaps during the upcoming monsoon season.

Taking note of the issues raised, MLA Siddharth Shirole assured residents that he would conduct follow-up meetings after 10 days to check on the progress made. He also announced his decision to hold meetings with ward officers twice a month to address these ongoing concerns.

With the promise of active involvement from their elected representative, residents in the Aundh-Baner and Ghole Road ward office area now hope for positive changes and effective resolutions to the long-standing civic issues plaguing their locality.
