Pune : Deccan Express – If a decision is in the interest of the people, for the benefit of the city and if it is transparent, then I always support it, said Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar.
State Deputy Chief Minister and Pune District Guardian Minister Ajit Pawar said in a press conference at Vidhan Bhavan that a decision would be taken on Sunday regarding the ongoing discussions and debates regarding amenity space in the city. Discussions are going on at all levels about the BJP’s proposal in the Pune Municipal Corporation to develop the city from the income earned from the civic amenity plot in the city on a 30-year lease. The NCP in Pune Municipal Corporation had on Wednesday accepted some issues and announced its conditional support for the proposal, but the decision was discussed at the party’s senior level on Wednesday night. Ajit Pawar said, “What is my intention in making a decision considering the development of the city? Politics is never used to solve development issues.”
Regarding the amenity space of Pune Municipal Corporation, I am a party corporator from 11 am to 1 am on Sunday. City President Prashant Jagtap will hold discussions with MP Vandana Chavan. Prior to this meeting, a demonstration of the development plan prepared by the Pune Metropolitan Planning Committee will be shown by the officers. Citizens’ interests will be taken into consideration when deciding on amenity space, not corporators.
