CBD BELAPUR: A high-level Shiv Sena del­e­ga­tion of cor­po­ra­tors and leader led by deputy leader of the party, Vi­jay Na­hata along with NMMC op­po­si­tion leader Vi­jay Chougule and for mer Cidco di­rec­tor Namdeo Bha­gat met mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Di­nesh Waghmare and mayor Sud­hakar Son­awane on Fri­day.

The dele gation raised a num­ber of long pend­ing city is­sues ask­ing for early res­o­lu­tion to them and also de­manded that the ad­min­is­tra­tion not work un­der pres­sure of the lead­er­ship of the rul­ing party.

The del­e­ga­tion raised the is­sues of san­i­ta­tion work­ers, trans­fer of Ghan­soli node from Cidco, for­ma­tion of ward com­mit­tees and the re­ported sum­mons to the heads of de­part­ments by the rul­ing party lead­er­ship for meet­ings out­side the NMMC head­quar­ters.

Na­hata said, “De­spite state govern­ment or­der, the san­i­ta­tion work­ers in the city are yet to get min­i­mum wages for their work. The con­trac­tors who are con­nected with the rul­ing party are earn­ing huge amounts through fake at­ten­dances and by fleec­ing the work­ers.”

He added, “We want im­me­di­ate trans­fer of Ghan­soli node from Cidco to NMMC. We have a num­ber of cor­po­ra­tors. All pend­ing works there should be com­pleted at the ear­li­est.”

On the dis­cus­sion with the mayor Na­hata said, “We asked for timely start to the gen­eral body meet­ings and com­ple­tion of busi­ness by 7 pm.”

He added, “The mayor has been co­op­er­at­ing with our cor­po­ra­tors, how­ever, he is un­der a lot of pres­sure from his political lead­er­ship. We have asked him to con­duct the house and meet­ings as per the norms and also en­sure that the deputy mayor who is of­ten ig­nored is in­vited for the meet­ings.”

Na­hata said, “The NMMC HODs are sum­moned to ho­tels and White House for meet­ings. They are given in­struc­tions there to be fol­lowed. If this does not stop, we will launch a mas­sive ag­i­ta­tion on the is­sue.”
