Malegaon: Congress President Mrs. Sonia Gandhi would be inaugurating the 200-bed General Hospital today afternoon in Malegaon.

 

"The General Hospital will be inaugurated by UPA Chairperson Mrs. Sonia Gandhi today afternoon", SDO Ajay More informed while speaking to ummid.com.

 

The inauguration would end months of speculations over who would actually cut the ribbon before the hospital is opened for the general public.

 

Besides Mrs. Gandhi, Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad, Chief Minister Ashok Chavan, Dy. Chief Minister Chagan Bhujbal and other Ministers in the Government of Maharashtra would also be present in the inaugural function, said Ajay More.

 

Meanwhile Malegaon is resembling a fortress and the security is beefed up in view of Mrs. Sonia Gandhi's visit to the town.

 

District Collector P. Velrasu  and IG Police Suryaprakash Gupta are camping in the town since last few days to personally monitor the security and other measures. They are assisted by Additional Collector Yeshwant Sonawane, SP Nikhil Gupta, SDO Ajay More and Additional SP Sanjay Patil.

 

Owing to the tight security arrangements for Mrs. Sonia Gandhi, the general public is not allowed to attend the much awaited inaugural function.

 

"The inaugural function would be attended only by a gathering of selected people who are already issued the entry passes", Sanjay Patil Additional SP said in a press release circulated in the local media while appealing the people not to crowd the venue.

 

Cost of the Hospital 

Though the government figures show an estimated 16 crore rupees that were spent on the hospital, locals believe the Malegaonians have paid a very heavy price to get this hospital for the town.

 

“We have to undergo a series of communal riots and two terrorist attacks before the  Government realized the town needs an equipped government hospital in the town”, Malik Bakrawala, a local activist says while speaking to ummid.com. “Apart from whatever the Government had spent on this hospital in the form of money, the innocent lives killed in several riots and specially those who were killed in 2006 serial blast played a major role in converting this dream project into a reality for the Malegaonians", he adds.

 

The hospital inauguration was earlier planned before the parliamentary elections. However after the strong opposition from few local leaders who threatened of dire consequences if the hospital was inaugurated without the required machineries, the authorities postponed its opening.

 

The General Hospital was promised by Mrs. Sonia Gandhi herself when she had visited the town after 2006 serial blast.
