The Shiv Sena has al­leged that the rul­ing party and some op­po­si­tion mem­bers in Pan­vel Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil have sanc­tioned some res­o­lu­tions that had been stayed in the house.

Shiv Sena cor­po­ra­tor Ramesh Gudekar has al­leged that there were 78 res­o­lu­tions in the house in the meet­ing held on De­cem­ber 17, 2015, of which seven had been stayed. He has al­leged that they too have been sanc­tioned.

Gudekar, who is also the group leader in the house, has ob­jected to the min­utes of De­cem­ber 17, 2015. De­ci­sion was to be made at the time on a re­quest by Li­maye pub­lic li­brary for a grant of Rs1 lakh. Gudekar said there is en­croach­ment by the li­brary which should first be re­moved and only then the grant given.

An­other res­o­lu­tion that had been stayed was of pro­vid­ing an al­ter­na­tive road for Sid­dhiv­inayak Com­plex lo­cated next to Ch­ha­tra­p­ati Samb­haji Ma­haraj ground. How­ever, it was ap­proved in the March 22 gen­eral body meet­ing, he said.

Gudekar said, “Dis­cus­sion had been held on the Rs8,49,548 beau­ti­fi­ca­tion project of Amard­ham cre­ma­to­rium and that is­sue too was kept pend­ing. The ex­pense of Rs7,74,185 for re­pair of bazaar wall had been op­posed. But, the min­utes show it to be ap­proved.”

He added, “Ob­jec­tion was also raised over the in­flated bills of ur­ban un­der­ground gut­ters scheme. It has been al­leged that the work was de­layed due to the con­trac­tor’s and hence there was no case of pay­ing ex­tra. How­ever, the min­utes show that the pro­posal for an in­crease of Rs10 crore has been ap­proved.”

Gudekar said, “In the meet­ing in March, I had de­manded that the min­utes of De­cem­ber 17, 2015, should be put to vote. At the time, the num­ber of the op­po­si­tion mem­bers was higher. This had led to ten­sion within the rul­ing party. The rul­ing party had then taken up other is­sues.”

He de­manded, “We want a de­tailed in­quiry into the is­sue.”

Deny­ing the al­le­ga­tions, PMC pres­i­dent Charusheela Gharat said, “The ap­provals have been given fol­low­ing proper pro­ce­dures. The op­po­si­tion is un­nec­es­sar­ily try­ing to cre­ate hur­dles in de­vel­op­ment work in the city.”
