Mumbai: Surekha Patil, Corporator, Ward No. 27, kandivali Lokhandwala, took the opportunity to thank the societies in her Ward and the NGO’s for surging forward to help her amid the ongoing pandemic situation and the lockdown.
Interacting with Hello Mumbai News reporter Jui Jadhav, she said due to the outbreak of Coronavirus virus, all the work came to a standstill abruptly. Since people were cautioned to stay home and unable to stir out, me, alongwith my co-workers provided food and vegetables to the people.
Surekha further added that apart from sanitization work, medicines were distributed to the people and E-Pass was also made available to those staying in other countries. A list of those staying outside was prepared and with the help of police officers, their pass was made and they were sent home.
She affirmed that in Ward No. 27, almost 600-700 people were given ration without their Adhaar Card as it was a need of the time. She added that in the beginning, the rationing office helped her in providing free ration, but, in the later phase they started giving reasons as there was no ration available and those who were left without any ration were provided free food with the help of NGO’s.
Surekha Patil also said that she is satisfied with the work of the BMC officials working during this pandemic situation. But it seems that the man power is less and since everyone is working and concentrating on this existing pandemic situation, other small works that were left unsolved in this period should also be completed.
She further added “however tough the situation is, we should not panic, but to work with full protection in following the rules and the remaining work should now be completed. Surekha Patil herself started to complete the pending work amid this lockdown.
