BJP Leader Mahesh Landge Proposes Division of Pune District to Establish Separate Shivneri District for PCMC

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA and President of Pimpri Chinchwad’s city unit (PCMC), Mahesh Landge, has requested Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to consider dividing Pune district and creating a separate district for Pimpri Chinchwad, to be named Shivneri district.

During the deputy CM’s visit for the inauguration of development projects, MLA Landge put forth this demand. According to Landge, Pune is one of the largest districts in Maharashtra, and due to its increasing population, the state government should consider dividing it for better administration and management of the city. He further emphasized that Pimpri-Chinchwad (PCMC), which was once a small town, has seen significant growth and development, justifying its status as a separate district under the name Shivneri.

This demand by the BJP leader has sparked discussions among citizens and political parties. Previously, there were calls for a separate district for Baramati, and now the BJP is demanding for a new district for Pimpri Chinchwad (PCMC). The matter will be deliberated upon by officials, and a decision is expected to be announced in the coming days.
