Actor Salman Khan’s NGO facing blacklisting!

 

Bollywood star Salman Khan’s Being Human Foundation, a charity outfit that works for the underprivileged in the education and healthcare sectors, is likely to be blacklisted by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) for not operating a dialysis centre in Bandra.

After issuing two show-cause notices to the NGO last month, the BMC’s health department is now in the process of blacklisting it.

When contacted, an official with Foundation, who did not want to be identified, said: “We do not wish to say anything.”

Dr Padmaja Keskar, BMC’s executive health officer, confirmed that the Foundation is being blacklisted as it has done nothing to start operations at the centre, which has been lying closed and unused since it was set up and handed over to the NGO in 2016. The centre is supposed to offer the medical facility to citizens at minimum cost.

In July 2016, following a tendering process, the NGO was allotted a 250 square metre space at Bandra’s St John Road to run 24 dialysis machines in a public-private partnership basis. “The project was never been implemented. After we sent them a reminder last December, the Foundation responded saying it cannot run the dialysis centre owing to some difficulty,” said Keskar. “We will now issue a notice to blacklist the Foundation.”

The BMC sent two letters to the Bollywood actor’s NGO, on January 6 and January 18, warning the organisation that it would be blacklisted for “showing negligence” after bidding for the project.

As there has been no positive response, the BMC is now refloating tenders for the dialysis centre. Once the Foundation is blacklisted, it cannot bid for the same project again.
