"We have been dumped here like animals. Like dogs", Satish Surana, former Municipal Corporator from Soygaon Market area of Malegaon is heard saying in the video.

"Our position here is worse than animals", Suran said.

Surana also accused the Malegaon Muncipal Corporation (MMC) of deliberately ignoring the plight of the Corona suspects living under quarantine.

He also raised questions over the the Malegaon civic body's claim that it is spending "crores of rupees" for Covid suspects.

"Its all lies, show off and only papers. Malegaon Coroporation is neither providing us water nor other facilities. We are given meals which even dogs will not eat", he said.

"There is no proper sanitation, no mask, no sanitiser, nothing. The used PPE kits are lying here and there. The civic body doesn't take care to dispose them off", he added.

"This place is just unfit for any human being", he said.

Similar videos were earlier released by Coronavirus positive patients and suspects quarantined at As Sayer Hospital Mansoora and Jeevan Hospital - both temporarily acquired by the Malegaon Municipal Corporation (MMC).

Malegaon is worst Corona-hit city after Mumbai and Pune in Maharashtra. The city has so far recorded more than 500 Covid positive cases and 18 deaths.
