In keeping with demand made by a group of people, public trust Shree Vardhaman Sthanakvasi Jain Shravak has proposed to set up a hospital in memory of late freedom fighter and social activist Ahilya Rangnekar on a plot of land in Dadar.
The trust owns a 642 square yards land in Dadar. However, it wants to acquire from civic body an adjacent plot, which originally belonged to them but was later reserved for a school, a release said here.
In the Town Planing (TP) scheme, this land was first shown reserved for a school. However, the school never came up and the land was encroached upon. In the revised Development Plan (DP), reservation of this land has been changed to accommodate the dishoused.
A delegation led by Shantilal Maru, Chairman Trustee of Vardhaman Sthanakwasi Jain Shravak Sangh, advocate Mukesh Chheda and members of the trust met Assistant Municipal Commissioner of G/North Ward yesterday and apprised him of the people’s suggestion to build a hospital on this plot of land.
More than 1,500 people from this area have come up with a demand to build a hospital, the delegation informed the civic body.
They informed that last year, veteran Gandhian and anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare had hailed the move of the trust to build a hospital in memory of Ahilya Rangnekar.
The delegation has urged the municipal body to consider the demand of people to set up hospital and grant adjacent land for this purpose, the release said.
