Last week NMMC Standing Committee Chairman had sent back the proposal for 10% reservation for poor at Hiranandani Fortis back to NMMC administration. The Chairman Anant Sutar had said that the Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik has taken a tough stand on the issue and assured that this week the proposal will be implemented along with the clauses kept by the Standing Committee. Now that the D Day has arrived – Will Justice finally be done to the poor. Last week the NMMC Commissioner Vijay Nahata took back the proposal of the 10% reservation policy. When the proposal came for discussions, the Standing Committee Chairman Anant Sutar said that the NCP led by Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik was determined to ensure that the proposal was approved along with the 5 clauses kept by the earlier Standing Committee. He assured the members that the proposal will be brought back in the next Standing Committee meeting. Speaking to the media after the Standing Committee meeting, Anant Sutar said that more needs to be done to make the proposal benefit all poor. It may be recalled that NMTV News had aired a report on HF Director Dr. Rajeev Bhaudhankar’s statement terming Standing Committee clauses as illogical while rejecting them. However, the NCP is not going to accept Fortis’s rejection on their clauses. Anant Sutar said that NMMC was the owner of the hospital while Fortis was just a tenant and if Fortis does not listen then they will terminate the contract with Fortis. Earlier Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik and MLA Sandeep Naik too had voiced determination that come what may they will ensure that all the clauses of the Standing Committee are accepted by Fortis or the latter will be asked to vacate the poor man’s hospital. Now the D Day for doing justice to the poor has arrived. The body language of the NMMC Standing Committee Chairman Anant Sutar on the 10% reservation policy and determination of both Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik and MLA Sandeep Naik makes one hopeful that this time, under Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik, the NCP is completely committed to implement 10% reservation for the poor at Hiranandani Fortis. Whether the NCP leaders will once again live up to another promise they have made to the poor, the city will find out at this week’s Standing Committee meet. However if the past record of Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik and MLA Sandeep Naik is anything to go by, there is no doubting that at this week’s Standing Committee meeting justice perhaps will be done to the poor in Navi Mumbai.
