CBD BELAPUR: Fol­low­ing a res­o­lu­tion adopted on the is­sue by the Maharashtra Mayor Coun­cil (MMC) at its re­cently con­cluded meet­ing, mayor Sud­hakar Son­awane has re­it­er­ated his de­mand for a red bea­con on his car.

Ac­cord­ing to Son­awane, “The MMC has passed a res­o­lu­tion de­mand­ing that may­ors be al­lowed to use the bea­con atop their cars.”

Son­awane said, “The mayor is the first ci­ti­zen of a city and so should have a dis­tinct iden­tity.”

He added, “Ear­lier, even D cat­e­gory may­ors had red bea­cons on their ve­hi­cles. Now dif­fer­en­ti­at­ing be­tween them on the ba­sis of the cat­e­gory of the mu­nic­i­pal cor­po­ra­tion is wrong. A mayor is a mayor, whichever cat­e­gory the cor­po­ra­tion be­longs to.”

Son­awane said, “In the first week of April, af­ter the present as­sem­bly bud­get ses­sion, we are plan­ning to meet the chief min­is­ter and raise the is­sue with him.”
