Shiv Sena’s Neelam Gorhe voices concern over fire safety measures at Vidhan Bhavan
Senior Shiv Sena member Dr Neelam Gorhe expressed concern over the fire safety measures in Vidhan Bhavan, last week.
Raising the issue through a Special Mention in the Legislative Council after question hour, she said that just like in the Mantralaya, all the doors in both the Houses of the round domed building are made of wood and are not fire proof. Besides, both the Houses have lots of wooden furniture and the area is fully carpeted. Further, the staircases are narrow and no one would ever be able to get out of the building in time, in case of an emergency. Gorhe demanded that the secretariat needs to undertake a surprise mock drill. Panel chair Mohan Joshi directed the government to make a statement on the issue.
