Read Time:47 Second

DEPUTY CHIEF Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Wednesday announced a probe by the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) into the alleged corruption in Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). He was speaking in the Assembly while replying to a debate on issues pertaining to the Mumbai Metropolitan Region.

The discussion began on Tuesday with BJP legislators making a slew of allegations of corruption in the BMC and they were supported by some Congress legislators as well.

Fadnavis said the issue of BMC officers floating companies in their relatives’ names and bagging tenders during Covid times would be probed by an officer of the state urban development department and a report would be given in a timely manner. Fadnavis said, “Prima facie, I think there are irregularities in this.” Pointing out that out of Mumbai’s 1,900 kms of road, 1,200 kms are still made of asphalt, Fadnavis said all the roads will be concretised in the next two years.
