Just concluded an extensive meeting with Hon. LoP @Dev_Fadnavis ji in Mumbai, and appraised him of the #COVID19 situation in #Pune and discussed the discriminatory politically motivated behavior of Hon. CM @OfficeofUT ji against #Pune and all other cities in Maharashtra.
Devendra ji was highly appreciative of the #PMC@BJP4PuneCity who inspite of zero support from the
state, inspite of constantly being ignored by the Hon. CM has managed to overcome the 2nd wave & reduce its mortality rate drastically.

जनमताचा पाठिंबा नसताना कुटील कारस्थानांमधून स्थापन झालेल्या @ShivSena - @NCPspeaks - @INCMaharashtra सरकारचे नेतृत्त्व @OfficeofUT यांनी स्वीकारले.
आमदार कोणत्याही पक्षाचा असो, मुख्यमंत्री म्हणजे एक आधार असल्याची भावना असायला हवी. पण इथे नेमके तेच होत नाही #महा_विनाश_आघाडी
कोणत्याही आमदाराला मुख्यमंत्री उद्धव ठाकरेंचा आधार वाटतच नाही. याचे सर्वात महत्त्वाचे कारण म्हणजे हे मुख्यमंत्री स्वत:च्याच कोषात आहेत. त्यांच्यापर्यंत पोचणे आणि त्यांच्याशी संपर्क साधणे ही केवळ सर्वसामान्य जनताच नव्हे, आम्हा आमदारांसाठीही अत्यंत अवघड आणि दुर्मीळ गोष्ट आहे.

The Family's Arrogance is our state's worst enemy...
Where personal agendas have become more important than the welfare of the citizens..
Where a decision taken to satisfy one's ego is now being masqueraded as "Saving the Environment"
Reminder 1) An independent committee instituted by the MVA government itself has said that the shifting of the Metro Car Shed from #aarey to #kanjurmarg will cost an additional Rs.4000 Crores.
How does the state government plan to fund this project ?

‘माझे कुटुंब, माझी जबाबदारी’ Hon. CM's pet initiative,while noble in it's intention, is completely flawed in it's execution.
The door-to-door awareness & #Covid19 Screening campaign carried out by diverting our much needed public funds & resources has been a massive failure.(1/5)
Official numbers from the Phase 1 ( 15/09 - 10/10) of the ‘माझे कुटुंब, माझी जबाबदारी’ campaign are either grossly overstated & fudged or are made up from random & fake data collection. They claim that 1029 official teams have already screened 29.93Lakh Punekars for COVID19 (2/5)

It has been over 195 days since Gyms across MH have not been allowed to open doors to their patrons. Gyms which have even less density of gatherings & much greater social distancing requirements than malls, public transport have been subject to unfair restrictions. (1/6)
State's reluctance to reopen Fitness Centers, when other states are adhering to Central Government's notification to relax guidelines is damaging to the fitness industry & its patrons. Livelihood of over 30 thousand families in #Pune are directly affected by this closure. (2/6)

Citizens from across #Pune have approached me over the past few weeks, sharing stories of banks & financial institutions sending physically intimidating recovery agents to their homes, threatening their families and extorting money due as EMI's under threat of violence. (1/n)
The RBI & Central Government intervened and gave millions of Indians an opportunity to avail moratorium during the first few months of #LockDown
Unfortunately, there are still many citizens, who are finding it difficult to generate sufficient income to pay their Loan EMI’s (2/n)

It has been over 6 months since restaurants across Maharashtra have not been allowed to open doors to for dine-in customers. While Hotels, Public Transport and Malls are allowed to re-open, restaurants with similar crowd gatherings have been subject to unfair restrictions (1/6)
Although the first months of restrictions was understandable, the State's reluctance to allow dine-in services even after the Central Government's notification to relax guidelines has truly been detrimental to the survival of the restaurant industry. (2/6)

29 days since CM @OfficeofUT ji (via VC), Dy.CM@AjitPawarSpeaks ji declared that 1950 beds spread across 3 Jumbo Centers are ready to treat critical #COVID19 patients in #Pune.
It is infuriating to know that almost 45% beds are still inoperational today (1/5)
AS of today COEP Jumbo #Covid Hospital has only 330 Beds (270 Oxygen, 30 ICU, 30 ICU Ventilator) operational instead of 800 (600 Oxygen + 200 ICU) expected to successfully treat critical patients with advance stages of infection & help reduce the mortality rate of #Pune (2/5)

#Pune crossed a major milestone of 100000 citizens who have successfully recovered from #COVID19 infections. While on the one hand we are still trying to control infections, improve recovery rates and reduce mortality rate, we cannot ignore the importance of Post-COVID care (1/n)
Studies have shown that most #COVID19 recovered patients continue to exhibit unpleasant side-effects. An estimated 75% of patients who suffered severe forms of infection return back to hospitals complaining of chest pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, stress and anxiety. (2/n)

Visited the Jumbo #Covid Hospital at COEP today. Reviewed the infrastructure and patient care facilities along with Addl Municipal Commissioner @IAS_Rubal Agarwal ji, Administrative in-charge Ambar Ayade and Rajendra Muthe (1/4)
Had a detailed discussion with both the Medical and the Administration staff and took note of the various concerns & issues faced by them in terms equipment, experienced staff and medicines. I have assured them that I will take up the same with the state government. (2/4)

I have received multiple complaints of ill-treatment of citizens by @PuneCityPolice Officials in the past few days, especially when it comes to enforcing #COVID19 protocols of masks worn by 4-wheeler drivers and passengers. (1/6)
I have the utmost respect for our police personnel, especially the beat cops and the constables who are just following orders and are possibly feeling the pressure from their seniors. (2/6)

It is plain & simple, @OfficeofUT ji led #MVA Govt has betrayed the citizens of #Pune.
Even after 6 months, they have failed to build a #COVID19 medical infrastructure that can save lives of critical patients. The launch of Jumbo Hospitals can only be called as deception (1/4)
Built by spending over Rs.200 Crores of public funds the Jumbo hospitals were supposed to be dedicated Treatment centers for critical patients, but unfortunately they are woefully understaffed, untrained and reek of impropriety & corruption (2/4)

Today unfortunately Pandurang Raikar a young reporter with @TV9Marathi lost his life to #Covid19...once again highlighting the complete failure of the @OfficeofUT Government to build sustainable medical infrastructure to gain control & help reduce mortality rate for #Pune. (1/6)
Hon. CM @OfficeofUT ji & Dy. CM @AjitPawarSpeaks ji even inaugurated 2 Jumbo #COVID19 Hospitals at COEP and PCMC last week. Built by spending over Rs.200 Crores of public funds these hospitals are supposed to be dedicated Treatment centers for critical patients (2/6)

Been receiving numerous complaints frm citizens who have brought to my notice the lack of ease in hospitalization,the overwhelming dearth of trained medical staff & doctors,and absence of compassion shown towards patients at the newly inaugurated #COVID19 Hospitals in #Pune (1/7)
It has been almost a week since Jumbo Hospitals at COEP & Magar Stadium were inaugurated & declared ready to treat #COVID19 patients from across #Pune. These facilities are supposed to be dedicated Treatment centers for patients with moderate, high & severe #COVID symptoms. (2/7)

51.5% show seroprevalence of #COVID19 infections in 5 PMC areas according to the survey carried out in association with @PMCPune by Dr Aurnab Ghose @IISERPune, Dr Arati Nagarkar #SPPU, along with @THSTIFaridabad & CMC Vellore funded @Persistentsys
1664 samples from 5 different prabhags were collected, between 20 July & 5 Aug.
51.5% people were found with antibodies SARS-CoV-2. ( levels ranged from 36.1 to 64.4 ) which means 51.5% citizens from these areas were infected with #COVID19 and recovered by themselves.

An average 5500 #COVID19 Detection tests are conducted in #Pune ( @PMCPune ) every day. It has been over a month since the administration has shared data of bifurcation of these tests into RT-PCR and RAT (Rapid Antigen Test).
In the past months RAT has taken precedence over the regular RT-PCR test which experts agree is not the correct way forward in controlling the #Coronavirus Pandemic. RAT are easier and results are much faster but the efficacy is way less than that of the RT-PCR test. (2/n)

MH State order of regulating Inter-District travel and imposing Night Curfew is detrimental to getting our lives back on track. Citizens & Small Business are suffering.
Hon. CM @OfficeofUT ji needs to revoke these restrictions immediately. #TrulyUnlockPune#PunhaPune
5 months since #pandemic brought the country, economy & our lives to a halt. Citizens have suffered financial & personal setbacks. Today, slowly but surely, everyone has accepted the reality of living with the virus and are eager to get back to normalcy. #TrulyUnlockPune

#DRDO has granted permission to survey feasibility of the underground road from Panchavati ( Pashan ) to S.B. Road and Paud Road. This approval will give impetus to the work of the new proposed route that is much needed as a long term solution to traffic movement in Shivajinagar
I had conducted an extensive meeting with Senior officials of the #DRDO last week, and urged them to expedite granting of permission for the survey. I thank all the officials of DRDO for this approval which will give a major boost to feasibility study of the new proposed road.

#PuneCity has 18,546 active cases of #COVID19.
The Administration while sharing the data has held back crucial info on bifurcation of patients in Home Isolation & Hospitals & Covid Care Centers which I think is essential to check preparedness of our medical Infrastructure (1/n)
We as public servants, caretakers of the society need to ensure that resources are allocated in the most optimal manner...without bifurcation data on how many hospital beds, CCC beds are needed, projecting the cities need for the coming weeks is going to be adhoc at best. (2/n)
