Nagpur: Amid novel Corona Virus (COVID-19) crisis, the local politics has hit rock bottom as Nagpur Mayor, Sandip Joshi has levelled up an allegation of ₹20 crore fraud against Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) chief, Tukaram Munde. Joshi along senior Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) leaders on Monday reached Sadar police station and filed a complaint against Munde.

In the FIR, Joshi has alleged that Munde, the CEO of ‘Smart City Project’ has misused his powers and willingly doctored paperwork to favor private institutions for ₹20 crore project.

While pointing out the continuous surge in COVID-19 cases, Joshi earlier, had also blamed Mundhe for executing sloppy strategy in dealing with the global pandemic. Joshi, who has been critical of Mundhe, has also targeted State Government saying that if we (BJP) were in power, Mundhe would have never been appointed in the city.
