Shiv Sena rivalry will cost Mumbai, delay policies and projects

Shiv Sena rivalry will cost Mumbai, delay policies and projects

Underworld don Arun Gawli's daughter Geeta, who won the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) elections from Byculla seat, has extended her support to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), taking the toll of corporators to 83 in 227-member House. Both the BJP and the Shiv Sena do not have a clear mandate.

Two times Shiv Sena corporator, Mangesh Satamkar's name is considered for the top post of BMC Mayor.

Two times Shiv Sena corporator Ramesh Korgaonkar who had won the BMC elections from Ward no 114 is also one of the favorite contenders for Mayoral elections in BMC. Otherwise, in the BMC, the BJP and the Sena were required to seek the support of other parties to capture power.

While Sena will try to make BJP's role in the city's governance inconsequential, the latter will hit back with the Fadnavis-led urban development department tightening its role in the BMC.

The core committee of Maharashtra BJP is likely to meet here tomorrow to chalk out the strategy for the Mumbai Mayoral election scheduled for March 8, in the backdrop of the civic polls throwing up a fractured verdict. "The BJP corporators would serve as the guardians of transparency in the BMC".

Emphasising on the issue of transparency, Fadnavis said, "We will not be in the opposition, we will support the ruling party but will not compromise on transparency". He also said that a committee of three retired bureaucrats would be formed to invite recommendations to ensure increased transparency in all the local bodies across the State. "While Uddhav Thackeray had earlier declared that the Sena would henceforth have no electoral alliance with the BJP, should these parties come together even at the zilla parishad level, things could become very hard for us", said a senior NCP leader.

On the other side, Congress spokesperson Raju Waghmare said this was expected since the match between the BJP and the Shiv Sena was "fixed", while Nationalist Congress Party state President Sunil Tatkare said the BJP move was not surprising, as his party had maintained all along that the Shiv Sena would not implement its threat of leaving the central and state governments.

On Saturday, Mahadeshwar and Worlikar filed their nomination for mayor and deputy mayor's posts.

And, when BJP attacks Sena in BMC, the latter will retaliate by attacking the state. "More than preventing corruption in the Sena-ruled BMC, Fadnavis has taken the decision to save his government in the state and his own chair".
