Renewing his attack on the Gokhale bridge-Barfiwala flyover misalignment issue, Aaditya Thackeray on Friday demanded an inquiry and the suspensions of BMC administrator Iqbal Singh Chahal and top railway officials concerned. Writing to Governor Ramesh Kumar Bais, the Worli MLA asserted that the "faulty construction of the Gokhale bridge by the BMC and the railways has brought national shame." The news of this failure of the agencies has travelled globally. Yet, both the agencies continue to pass the buck, he added.

Aaditya's letter to Bais

"I hereby humbly request you to issue suspension orders for the municipal commissioner (MC) Chahalji and the equivalent officer for the railways in the said project, so that they face a fair inquiry for not just botching up this project, but also wasting crores of taxpayers' money, shamelessly,” read his letter. Underlining that Chahal's transfer is overdue, Thackeray further said, “Even after the Election Commission of India's (ECI) orders, the unconstitutional CM takes the ECI for granted and doesn't changes the MC."

"Prime example of a politician-officer-contractor nexus"

Dubbing the Gokhale bridge-flyover misalignment as a "prime example of a politician-officer-contractor nexus", he said that the discrepancy occurred despite the local MLA's multiple visits along with officers to the bridge when it was under-construction. “Did they not see the fault in these visits or was it on purpose that the fault was created. So, that the other bridge can be broken and reconstructed,” he asked.
