CBD BE­LA­PUR: The op­po­si­tion Shiv Sena and BJP cor­po­ra­tors have con­demned the ac­tions of NMMC sec­re­tary Chi­tra Baviskar dur­ing the gen­eral body meet­ing on Thurs­day, claim­ing that she is act­ing on the be­hest of the rul­ing NCP.

The op­po­si­tion has de­manded that she be trans­ferred from her post­ing with im­me­di­ate ef­fect. The op­po­si­tion has long ob­jected to Baviskar’s post­ing claim­ing she is in­el­i­gi­ble for the post.

The op­po­si­tion was up­set over a res­o­lu­tion on nom­i­na­tion of a mem­ber on the Tree Author­ity. Baviskar an­nounced that she was with­draw­ing the res­o­lu­tion.

The op­po­si­tion raised ob­jec­tions on the is­sue claim­ing they did not know about it. Op­po­si­tion leader Vi­jay Chougule said, “We had given seven nom­i­na­tions for the post. On what ba­sis was the res­o­lu­tion brought?”

Shiv Sena cor­po­ra­tor Namdeo Bha­gat said: “Why was no one other than NCP spokesper­son Jayaji Nath in­formed about it?”

He added, “Her ac­tions are all dic­tated by the rul­ing party.”

Cor­po­ra­tor MK Mad­hvi said: “The sec­re­tary is not ca­pa­ble for the job. She should be im­me­di­ately trans­ferred from her job.”

BJP group leader Ram­chan­dra Gharat said, “Why are the spec­i­fied norms and rules not fol­lowed by her? It is so ob­vi­ous who she is sup­port­ing al­ways.”

Baviskar re­fused to com­ment. She has con­sis­tently de­nied the al­le­ga­tions of the op­po­si­tion claim­ing she acts as per the norms in an un­bi­ased man­ner.
