CBD BELAPUR: In yet another ad­min­is­tra­tive ac­tion taken by mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Tukaram Munde, ad­di­tional mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Dr San­jay Pat­ti­war has been now made med­i­cal of­fi­cer of health (MOH), which was his ear­lier des­ig­na­tion.

The present med­i­cal of­fi­cer of health, Dr. Deepak Parop­kari, has now been made his deputy.

Ac­cord­ing to a civic of­fi­cial, “The ad­di­tional mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner’s post has not yet been sanc­tioned by the state govern­ment. Pat­ti­war had how­ever been oc­cu­py­ing the post for years.”

He added, “The com­mis­sioner has or­dered that he will be re­in­stated as ad­di­tional mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner once the con­fir­ma­tion comes from the govern­ment. Un­til then, he will re­main as MOH.”

Pat­ti­war has been em­broiled in sev­eral con­tro­ver­sies in the past chiefly for the agree­ment with Hi­ranan­dani hos­pi­tal and the case of a stock of medicines post their ex­piry date kept at NMMC hos­pi­tal. Pat­ti­war has de­nied any wrong­do­ing in the al­le­ga­tions made against him.
