Bhandewadi would be garbage free in next three years, said Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. The bio-mining plant in the area will treat 10 lakh metric tonnes of solid waste that would give respite to the residents. This would pave the way for developing the 22 hectares of land where different amenities like parks, residential units etc would come up, the CM said.
He was speaking after performing the bhoomipujan of the bio-mining processing plant in Bhandewadi. Union Minister for Road and Surface Transport Nitin Gadkari, Energy and Guardian Minister of the district Chandrashekhar Bawankule, MLAs Krishna Khopde, Sudhakar Kohle, MLC Anil Sole, District Collector Ashwin Mudgal, Municipal Commissioner Abhijit Bangar and Chairperson, Nagpur Improvement Trust (NIT) Sheetal Ugle were seated on the dais.
Speaking further Fadnavis said, Nagpur is the first city in the State to run a bio mining project, which would make the entire area free of garbage. The project would also help in bringing down the pollution level and eliminate foul smells emanating from the garbage.
On the occasion, the slum-dwellers were distributed ownership titles at the hands of Fadnavis and Union Minister for Road and Surface Transport Nitin Gadkari.
Gadkari, Bawankule and other guests also spoke on the occasion giving information about various developmental works carried out by the State as well as Central government in the city and entire country.
