BNCMC mayor Pratibha Patil, who attended the meeting told the housing minister that development works in the city had come to a halt for the last two years due to a lack of funds and the city dwellers were upset because of this.

Konark Vikas Aghadi leader Vilas Patil, who was also present said that the shortage of funds was triggered due to the COVID-19 crisis.

Awhad assured the ministers that detailed discussions will be held with top officials including Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar and necessary steps will be taken to ensure development works in the city continue.
