Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis today said the official residence for MLAs here ‘Manora’ needs to be reconstructed as it has construction of poor quality.

The Chief Minister spoke in the Legislative Assembly. The issue was not scheduled for discussion today in the house, but last night a portion of ceiling fell in one of the flats of ‘Manora’. The flat was allotted to NCP MLA Satish Patil of Erandol constituency from Jalgaon district.

Leader of Opposition Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil and NCP leader Ajit Pawar raised the issue in the house.

Responding to it, Fadnavis said, “I am aware of ‘Manora’ and its condition. It is true that its construction quality is of poor quality and we can not repair it further. I will hold a meeting today itself and try to find alternative accommodation for the MLAs.”
