Congress attacks BMC over Waterlogging Alleging Corruption amid speculations of rift going on in MVA
Ahead of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) elections 2022 all the parties are gearing up. On Monday the Congress party attacked the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), which is harnessed by the Uddhav Thackeray led Shiv Sena, for supposed corruption and not doing any prior preparations to handle the monsoon situation in Mumbai which took the lives of many people in the city of Mumbai. 
 
The attack has come at a time when there is already a hypothesis going on of a crack in the ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) coalition which comprises the Shiv Sena, the Congress, and the Nationalist Congress Party(NCP). While in conversation with the media Mumbai Congress president Bhai Jagtap stated, “Every time every year the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation(BMC) assures the citizens of good management waterlogging because of the rain condition but every time they fail.
 
A survey was conducted by us and all the issues were made aware to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) before the rain could even start. The money spent for the issues to be resolved were in hundreds of crores but not even 25 percent of the work has been done so far by the civil authority.” “If the work has not even started where is all the money which was spent for the work to be done? There could be corruption involved different levels of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC)”, he further claimed. 
 
He also attacked the corporation on the recent accidents which took place in Vikhroli and Chembur after a building collapsed taking the lives of 31 people. "It was very clearly visible and anyone could identify the structures that they were in dangerous conditions and a lot of work was to be needed. Many a time the authority was informed about it so that situations like these never occur but still no actions were taken. All these incidents should be investigated thoroughly and those responsible for it should be booked,” said the Congress leader.
