SUSHMA DANDE is re­mem­bered for work­ing in­de­pen­dently to push for the city’s devel­op­ment of the four women elected as mayor. She had pur­sued with Cidco the is­sue of al­lo­ca­tion of plot for the NMMC hos­pi­tal and the iconic Vishnudas Bhave Au­di­to­rium at Vashi.

MANDA MHA­TRE, a BJP MLA from Belapur con­stituency, was among the first cor­po­ra­tors of the cor­po­ra­tion.

Mha­tre, be­long­ing to a non-po­lit­i­cal fam­ily, has carved a niche for her­self in city pol­i­tics. Af­ter her ten­ure as cor­po­ra­tor, she be­came the NCP’s first woman pres­i­dent and then, mem­ber of leg­isla­tive coun­cil.

She left the NCP to join the BJP just be­fore the 2014 As­sem­bly elec­tions. Manda, be­long­ing to Agri-Koli com­mu­nity, was elected from Belapur As­sem­bly seat on a BJP ticket and is the first Agri woman MLA.
