Mumbai: Congress MLA attacks Sena-led BMC’s work in area that houses Thackeray residence
After Congress MP Milind Deora demanded a CBI probe into the projects carried out by Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) during the tenure of its Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) partner Shiv Sena, another Congress legislator, Zeeshan Siddique Thursday alleged corruption in the works carried out by Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), BMC, and Slum Rehabilitation Authority in the Bandra East area.
Siddique, the MLA for Vandre East, tweeted: “H/east ward is full of corruption, a thorough investigation needs to be done on all the works carried out by the MMRDA and BMC in the last 2.5 years. BKC smart parking, roads full of potholes, the SWM scam, the badly planned Cycling track, SRA scam. I can go on & on about things!”
Siddique’s constituency Vandre East was a Sena stronghold which he breached in 2019 by defeating former Mumbai mayor Vishvanath Mahadeshwar. It is also the constituency where the Thackeray family votes, as ‘Matoshree’, the private residence of former chief Minister and Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray, is located here.
