NMC Commissioner has been summoned by Standing Committee and directed him to be present in the Committee’s next meeting. The top boss Shyam Wardhane has been called to come clean over his red tape on development work files and likely deficit of Rs 130 crore in the current fiscal.
Nagpur News: The Nagpur Municipal Corporation’s (NMC) Standing Committee, charging NMC Commissioner with putting roadblocks in development works, has summoned him and directed to be present in the Committee’s next meeting. The top boss Shyam Wardhane has been called to come clean over his red tape on development work files and likely deficit of Rs 130 crore in the current fiscal. The Corporators are furious and fuming as many of their proposals have not been moving out of Commissioner’s chamber and are dumped in the corners of the four walls.
“The Standing Committee will decide the future of Commissioner after his clarifications over red signal to development works and the deficit of Rs 130 crore. It is the sole responsibility of NMC Administration to recover the targeted revenue in the fiscal year,” stressed the Mayor Anil Sole while talking to media. Now, one thing is clear that “wrestling” between the Commissioner and office-bearers is on the cards over the burning issues, and development will lick the dust.
The development of roads, housing scheme, decision on increasing of FSI in crowded areas and other crucial issues have been pending, the Heads of Departments have pointed their fingers towards Commissioner Wardhane for putting hurdles. The Standing Committee has even charged that the top boss has been dancing to the tunes of Congress Government since the NMC is being ruled by BJP.
The Mayor further said, “The Commissioner should not stall the development works for months together once the Standing Committee has approved them. The emergent and important works should be cleared within shortest period,” lamented the Mayor Sole adding that he will take his decision after the Standing Committee’s position on Commissioner’s clarifications.
The meeting of Standing Committee has been slated on January 4 and if the Committee remains unsatisfied, the NMC Commissioner is likely to face No Trust Motion.
