Thane, Apr 2 (PTI) Maharashtra Housing Minister
Jitendra Awhad on Friday accused Thane Municipal Corporation
officials of taking away Rs 14 crore worth of equipment from a
COVID facility in Kausa here without permission from MHADA.
Awhad, a senior NCP leader and MLA from Mumbra-Kalwa,
said the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority,
which is part of his ministry, had donated the equipment last
year when the outbreak was at its peak.
Annoyed after not finding the equipment when he came
to review facilities at the centre amid a surge in cases, the
minister said TMC officials had acted irresponsibly and must
“MHADA had spent Rs 20 crore to set up this centre.
These equipments belong to MHADA and the TMC cannot take it
away in this manner. It must immediately place it back at the
Kausa COVID centre. Or else I will register a police
complaint,” Awhad warned.
He said 92 ventilators are also missing, and asked TMC
officials to get the Kausa COVID facility back in shape as
quickly as possible.
TMC officials could not be reached or comments. PTI
