  • | Wednesday | 20th September, 2023

Kolhapur: Congress MLC Satej Patil on Tuesday appealed to Kolhapur district guardian minister Deepak Kesarkar to make the revised Mahalaxmi Temple Development Plan public.He also urged the minister to at least present it to elected representatives of all parties. Recently, Kesarkar claimed that the state government had made some changes in the original temple development plan, and a presentation was held for Shahu Chhatrapati Maharaj, head of Kolhapurs royal family. Patil said, No elected representative knows the details of the plan. When I was a minister and got the development of Keshavrao Bhosale Natygruha approved, I conducted a public presentation. I appeal to the guardian minister to involve all of us in the development process. In the spirit of democracy and transparency, he should conduct a presentation to the elected representatives of all parties. Kesarkar has been regularly visiting the city for inaugurating or laying the foundation of development works proposed in the revised plan. Kesarkar, a few days ago, had said as per the plan, the authorities concerned have installed underground power lines and developed facilities at the Paga building. The authorities have also demarcated a designated area to keep the footwear of visitors safe. The minister said an international tender was issued to rope in a conservation heritage architect to restore the heritage look of the buildings surrounding the temple. The authorities have made appointments in this regard. We had approved aid from the MLA and MLC local area development fund. But it takes months for the government to release funds from its treasury, Patil said. Congress MLA Ruturaj Patil alleged that the state government, due to sheer vindictiveness, has cancelled funds sanctioned by the then Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government to develop the bus stops.
