The metropolis was being looted as the Eknath Shinde government was indulging in only scams in the last one year, the former minister alleged.

The Sena (UBT) leader also accused the state government of corruption in road contracts for the city. “The government had planned to give Rs600 crore to the contractors even before the work started; they even took a 40% cut,” Thackeray said. “A file of your theft is ready and you will be shown your place on the day we come back to power,” he said.
