For the last few months, rampant burning on the open space next to Ujjwal Park on NIBM road in Kondhwa has raised severe health concerns among the residents.
With numerous help calls gone on deaf ears, the residents of Ujjwal Park on NIBM road recently met ex MLA and Shiv Sena’s senior leader Mahadev Babar, NIBM road’s ex Corporator Tanaji Lonkar, Aai Pratishthan’s Prasad Mahadev Babar and raised several other issues from the area too.
The residents said that every day they inhale toxic smell emitting from the garbage which is set on fire. This patch of the road needs cleaning from PMC which is not been the case. Despite setting up reminders, Pune Municipal Corporation has turned a blind eye, complained the residents.
The residents also raised other issues such as lack of nala cleaning, health and hygiene issues, safety and security of the residents and many other issues.

Mahadev Babar, ex MLa, Shivsena, Hadapsar Legislative Assembly who chaired the meeting said, “The residents have been living with toxic smell for the last few months. Despite raising the matter to the concerned authorities, it has not been resolved. Every year, nala water emits foul smell too. It is not cleaned regularly, which results in mosquitoes. A major health concern majorly during the monsoon. We shall now take up these issues with the Pune Municipal Corporation and resolve them.”
