Nagpur: Firing the salvo back for facing corruption charges in view of pathetic condition of Mumbai roads, the Shiv Sena has now taken BJP for task for the very poor and dilapidated conditon of all the roads in Nagpur.
It may be mentioned here that every thing appeared honky dory between Maharashtra Chief Minister and Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray in the dinner diplomacy recently. However, soon the real face of the all the politeness cropped up on surface.
Close on the comments of Energy Minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule who claimed that the heavy vehicles in Nagpur owing to ongoing development works have led to the bad condition of city roads. However Bawankule’s theory was not only ridiculed in political parleys, but it has also invited public ire on his mindless statement.
Chancing upon the situation, Shiv Sena has charged BJP for being completely careless towards Nagpur roads bringing it on the verge of collapse now.
Shiv Sena, in its mouth piece Saamna has pulled up Chief Minister Fadnavis, saying that those beating the bush around the corruption in Mumbai roads must now blow the trumpets on Nagpur potholes! Sena has also targetted Nagpur MP and Union Surface Transport and Shipping Minister Nitin Gadkari for the pitiable roads.
The editorial read, “The Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis belongs to Nagpur. Gadkari is also serving key post at the Centre. All the bosses are in power but Nagpur residents still have to face potholes…”
Raising the issue of rampant corruption in maintaining the condition of Nagpur roads, Sena lambasted BJP asking why action has not been taken against erring contractors who are found guilty. It may be mentioned that both NMC and BMC elections are due next year, in view of which both the parties are now coming up to show their might and tame grudges against each other.
