BMC warns Metro body over repeated pipeline damage
a letter from her office has been sent to the BMC asking them to warn the MMRC for the last time. “This is not the first time that the pipeline has been damaged. All the details including alignment of the pipes have been given to MMRC, yet they carry out the work in a way that is affecting the locals. We didn’t have proper water supply because of the damaged pipeline. We have informed BMC that if this repeats, we will come out on the streets in protest,” said Sanap.
When DNA contacted MMRC, a spokesperson from the corporation said, “We can say that we are still not aware of any such action by BMC. However, MMRC will ensure that their contractors honour the rightful action taken by the civic body in case there is any disturbance to major utilities.”
