No fire-fighting equipment at Vidhan Bhavan: Gorhe

"The issue of fire in Mantralaya was discussed in the Legislature. However, here entire furniture is wooden. And if fire breaks out, there is no fire-dousing mechanism," Gorhe said in the Legislative Council.

The staircases in the legislature complex (Vidhan Bhavan) were not broad enough to allow everybody to escape, she said.

Besides, public places such as shopping malls, five-star hotels, Municipal Corporation buildings and hospitals in the state lacked fire fighting equipment, she said.
