A few days af­ter he was de­moted from the post of ad­di­tional mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner, San­jay Pat­ti­war re­signed from the NMMC.

He had been de­moted to his for­mer post of med­i­cal of­fi­cer of health by mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Tukaram Mundhe.

Pat­ti­war’s res­ig­na­tion was con­firmed by NMMC of­fi­cials. He had re­cently been fac­ing al­le­ga­tions over civic hospi­tal re­lated ac­tiv­i­ties.

He has also come in flak for the PPP agree­ment with Hi­ranan­dani – For­tis that NMMC had en­tered into.

Last month, Mundhe de­moted Pat­ti­war stat­ing the post of ad­di­tional mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner has not yet been sanc­tioned by the state gov­ern­ment. He had stated that he will be re­in­stated once the sanc­tion comes.

Pat­ti­war has been hold­ing on to the post since 2006 with sources say­ing that the post­ing was po­lit­i­cally in­flu­enced.

Pat­ti­war has been em­broiled in sev­eral con­tro­ver­sies. There is re­port­edly an atroc­ity case against him too.

He had also come in for crit­i­cism in the stand­ing com­mit­tee lately, with Shiv Sena cor­po­ra­tor MK Mad­hvi rak­ing up the con­tro­ver­sies that Pat­ti­war has been in­volved in.
