Bhayandar: Targeting their ally-Shiv Sena for deliberately ignoring civic issues in the Mira-Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC), BJP corporators Anil Bhosale and Meera Yadav have launched a protest against the ‘unjustified’ demolition drives which render thousands of slum dwellers in their ward (No.46) homeless.
On Friday, the corporators along with their supporters launched a sit-in agitation outside the MBMC office in Bhayandar.
Questioning the double standards adopted by the civic administration, Bhosale said, “The civic body should take action against all illegal constructions instead of only targeting the poor people. Why doesn’t it take similar action against buildings where the elite reside?”
Although the agitation was called off after an assurance by the civic chief, the administration which is working as per norms is in no mood to adopt isolated standards for slums due to political interests, source said.
