CBD BELAPUR: Leader of the house in NMMC and se­nior NCP leader Jay­want Sutar has de­nied that he had sent a mes­sage that has gone vi­ral in the so­cial me­dia.

The mes­sage says that the NCP and the Congress planned to in­tro­duce a no­con­fi­dence mo­tion against the new mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Tukaram Munde. The Congress, too, has de­nied any such plans.

Sev­eral res­i­dents re­ceived for­warded mes­sages on their phone on Thurs­day say­ing the NCP and the Congress cor­po­ra­tors were up­set over the dis­re­spect shown to their lead­ers. They would in­tro­duce a no-con­fi­dence res­o­lu­tion in the next gen­eral body for the trans­fer of Munde.

“I have no idea of the func­tion­ing and work­ing style of the new com­mis­sioner. We will meet in the gen­eral body and there things will be clear,” said Sutar.

He added, “I have not sent th­ese mes­sages. I will file crim­i­nal com­plaint in this re­gard to find out who has played the mis­chief.”

Mayor Sud­hakar So­nan­wane said, “I am rep­re­sent­ing the rul­ing party and I have no knowl­edge of any such res­o­lu­tion be­ing planned. It is be­ing done by vested in­ter­ests.”

The Congress too dis­missed the mes­sages. Sud­hir Pawar, sec­re­tary, Ma­ha­rash­tra Pradesh Congress said, “This is an at­tempt to ma­lign the Congress. We have had no such dis­cus­sions over trans­fer­ring the civic chief.”
