MLA warns Mundhe of breach of priv­i­lege mo­tion in assem­bly ‘WILL RE­PLY WHEN I GET THE NO­TICE’

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVI - G Mo­hi­ud­din Jeddy ht­for­nav­i­mum­bai@hin­dus­tan­times.com

Even as the NCP has so far main­tained a stead­fast silence with re­spect to ac­tions by mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Tukaram Mundhe, many of which have gone against it and just a day af­ter the Shiv Sena ex­tended sup­port to the com­mis­sioner’s ac­tions, BJP MLA Manda Mha­tre has come out all guns blaz­ing against Mundhe.

Mha­tre has threat­ened Mundhe with breach of priv­i­lege mo­tion in the mon­soon assem­bly ses­sion next week.

Mha­tre is up­set over de­mo­li­tion ac­tion and no­tices sent to PAP in the city by NMMC in the past cou­ple of months since Mundhe took charge. Speak­ing at a press con­fer­ence at CBD Be­la­pur, Mha­tre said, “In the last assem­bly ses­sion, chief min­is­ter Deven­dra Fad­navis had stated that PAP houses will not be touched. He had is­sued the in­struc­tions to all agen­cies in the city in­clud­ing NMMC, Cidco , MIDC and oth­ers.”

She added, “He had clearly said that no ac­tion should be taken till the GR on reg­u­lar­i­sa­tion of the need-based con­struc­tions is is­sued. In the past two months, PAP houses are be­ing de­mol­ished. If it is not stopped im­me­di­ately, we will take to the streets in the assem­bly ses­sion.”

She said, “If wrong ac­tion con­tin­ues to take place with­out the com­mis­sioner’s knowl­edge, or if it is taken de­spite him know­ing about it, I will ta­ble a breach of priv­i­lege mo­tion against him in the assem­bly.”

Slam­ming the com­mis­sioner for his func­tion­ing style, Mha­tre said, “Elected rep­re­sen­ta­tives should be taken into con­fi­dence on the de­vel­op­men­tal plans for the city. A wrong sys­tem is presently be­ing im­ple­mented.”

Mha­tre said a del­e­ga­tion of all-party cor­po­ra­tors will meet the chief min­is­ter in a cou­ple of days and sub­mit a mem­o­ran­dum to him.
