Shiv Sena leader and former minister Mr. Aaditya Thackeray increased his criticism of the Shinde Fadnavis administration on Friday, claiming that since the "khoke" Sarkar came to the state, tenders, transfers, and time passes have been going on in the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), which is currently under administrator's rule.
"The tender for that amount was released after the illegitimate Chief Minister promised that Rs 5,000 crores would be spent on the concretization of roads in Mumbai. The tender was, however, cancelled roughly ten days ago. Was the tender cancelled because the parties who would have submitted it did not?" he questioned.
According to Mr. Thackeray, the BMC issues annual tenders totalling Rs 2,500 crores, and the work is carried out in stages. It is not permitted to complete all road construction projects at once. Whether or whether the government was aware of it It was evident that the government was lying as a result. 42 utilities are located beneath the road. There are 16 planning agencies in Mumbai, and they are required to operate with the traffic police's approval," he said. He made fun of the administration for this.
"Why did the Rs. 5,000 crores road concretization tender receive zero bids?" He questioned, "Was the tender not awarded because the parties in their favour failed to submit the tender? Nobody knows what will happen to Mumbai's roads now, he said sarcastically. Mr. Thackeray asserted that the declaration of Rs. 5000 crores in road construction delayed both last year's and this year's activities. If Mumbai collapses during the upcoming monsoon, who is to blame? He questioned, "How did the state government make such a significant decision without a mayor or standing committee?
According to Mr. Thackeray, 1700 crores rupees have been announced for Mumbai's makeover. This is the corporators' fund. Additionally, he said that this money was not used on the corporators' wards but was instead misappropriated. Mr. Thackeray attributed the loss of five industries due to their exodus from Maharashtra to the Shinde Fadnavis administration.
In addition, he claimed that the government has not yet declared a wet drought in response to the significant crop damage brought on by receding rains and flooding. The Panchnamas have not been executed. To change the criteria, a subcommittee meeting was required, but it was not held. He asserted that the "Khoke" Sarkar was still concentrating on politics.
