Maha-K'taka-border-row: After K'taka, dispute may escalate between Maharashtra and Telangana 

After the Maharashtra-Karnataka border row, a Maharashtra-Telangana border dispute may escalate as 14 villages of Chandrapur district in the western state bordering the Telugu one, have expressed interest to join the latter alleging continuous neglect and lack of development by the former. Although, all these 14 villages--geographically located in remote Jivati tehsil of Chandrapur district--are part of Maharashtra the dependence of these villages is more on Telangana.

These 14 hamlets have lagged behind in development due to the government's negligence and lack of developmental projects. The villages have to struggle for basic facilities like roads and water; because of this, the local people resent the Maharashtra government.

Former corporators seek CM intervention in BMC functioning

Around 94 former corporators from the Shiv Sena, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), Samajwadi Party and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) have written to Chief Minister Mr Eknath Shinde seeking his intervention on the lack of transparency and financial mismanagement in the BMC under state-appointed administrator and civic chief Mr Iqbal Singh Chahal.

A letter alleges that officials are being put under pressure by higher authorities and cites the latest internal transfers of various employees as an example of the same.

According to Mr Ravi Raja, former Leader of Opposition in the BMC, no tenders were invited and contracts were awarded directly for the ongoing beautification works for the G-20 presidency meet.
