Congress-NCP seek probe by Governor into alleged malpractices by BMC

A delegation of Congress-NCP leaders met Governor Vidyasagar Rao and sought a judicial probe into the alleged malpractices by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).

The delegation, led by Leader of Opposition in the Legislative Assembly, Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil, brought to the notice of the Governor the remarks made by Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) Director General Pravin Dixit, who had said that if corruption in the civic body could be rooted out, prices of flats in Mumbai would fall by at least Rs 500 per sq ft.

Apart from Vikhe Patil, Mumbai Congress president Janardhan Chandurkar, legi slators Bhai Jagtap and Amin Patel and NCP legislators Jeetendra Awhad and Vidya Chavan were part of the delegation that met the Governor on Tuesday.

Chandurkar said, “We demanded that the Governor directs the state government to institute a judicial probe or else the Governor intervenes in the matter.” Another demand highlighted in the meeting was that the Governor should seek a report from Water Conservation Minister, Girish Mahajan, who said that he was offered a bribe of Rs 100 crore by a contractor.
