of the Hospital
Though the government figures show an estimated 16 crore rupees that
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.
Hospital was promised by Mrs. Sonia Gandhi herself when she had
visited the town after 2006 serial blast.
