Neglected Neighbourhood: Keshavnagar Struggles Despite Inclusion in Pune Municipal Corporation

Share this News:

Keshavnagar, 5th August 2023: Despite being included in the Pune Municipal Corporation seven years ago, Keshavnagar continues to grapple with unresolved basic issues. The municipal administration and corporators have fallen short in addressing the concerns of the residents.

The situation has been exacerbated by the municipality’s administrative rule over the past two years, resulting in a lack of progress even in minor tasks. Frustrated citizens are openly expressing their discontent, noting that the Gram Panchayat era was comparatively more effective.

One glaring example of neglect is the state of the bridge over the stream at Keshavnagar, which remains inundated with garbage and rainwater. The absence of a proper footpath forces pedestrians to traverse through stagnant water, posing a major inconvenience. During the Gram Panchayat’s jurisdiction, local-level initiatives effectively addressed such issues, prompting citizens to approach the sarpanch, deputy sarpanch, and members for prompt resolutions. However, the current situation paints a stark contrast.

With the term of the incumbent corporator having lapsed over a year and a half ago, a lack of action is evident in some quarters. While a handful of former corporators are diligently following up, a tangible solution remains elusive.

Consequently, residents are taking their grievances directly to the municipality’s doorstep and engaging with officials from the concerned departments, demanding immediate action. However, Keshavnagar’s plight continues to evoke vague promises of “Let’s see,” leaving the community in a state of uncertainty.

In specific areas of Keshavnagar, such as Kumbharwada, Buddha Vihar, Gurukripa Society and Orbis School Road, as well as Shankarnagar and Mahaganeshnagari Society, the pervasive stench from uncollected garbage has become unbearable. The unchecked dumping of waste has resulted in an influx of disease-carrying mosquitoes, flies, and insects, exacerbating public health concerns. The potential for diseases like dengue and malaria to spread due to unsanitary conditions is a genuine worry. Recent instances of such ailments in the vicinity underscore the urgent need for the municipal administration to promptly address the waste management crisis in Keshavnagar. Residents are hopeful that a simple yet crucial solution can be implemented – daily garbage collection.
