Prabhakar Shinde, corporator and group leader of BJP in BMC has alleged corruption in the Municipal Secretary (MS) Department of BMC. Shinde alleged that employees of the MS department after taking a bribe of Rs. 5500 to provide proposals copy to Contractors.
Shinde recently wrote a letter to BMC Commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal and brought his attention to illegalities happening in the MS department.

Thereafter, as an administrator, Commissioner had passed some proposals but copies of those proposals have not been given to anyone.
