Claim­ing that the NCP claim of cor­po­ra­tors los­ing power in the project is hol­low, Chougule said: “What power does the mayor have to­day? He has to toe the line of his lead­ers. Nei­ther the first cit­i­zen of Navi Mum­bai nor the deputy mayor was present for the high-pro­file in­ter­na­tional level event or­gan­ised by the NCP leader in the city ear­lier this week. Since when has the NCP started to care for the rights of the cor­po­ra­tors?”

Shiv Sena cor­po­ra­tor MK Mad­hvi, who was ear­lier with the NCP, said: “While the op­po­si­tion cor­po­ra­tors are not al­lowed to speak in the stand­ing com­mit­tee and other meet­ings, even their own cor­po­ra­tors are gagged.”

“We were asked at our pre­meet­ings if we wanted to speak in the gen­eral body meet­ing on any is­sue. If we said yes, we were given some ex­pla­na­tion and told not to speak in the house as we had al­ready been an­swered.”

Mad­hvi said: “They did not even bother to dis­cuss with us the smart city project ob­jec­tions they had ear­lier. They came straight to the gen­eral body meet­ing with a set plan and re­jected the pro­posal.”
