Shinde recently wrote a letter to BMC Commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal and brought his attention to illegalities happening in the MS department.

In a letter, Shinde wrote that the last standing committee meeting was held on March 07, in that meeting 272 proposals were kept pending. Thereafter, as an administrator, Commissioner had passed some proposals but copies of those proposals have not been given to anyone.

In the last three months of tenure of administrator, many employees of MS department earned lakhs of rupees from contractors. These act of the employees is maligning the image of BMC.
