THE 39 BJP corporators who were served notices by Lokayukta for irregularities in development work carried out in MP Nagar expressed their displeasure with the leadership during a meeting of the BJP corporators’ group held on Saturday.
The 39 corporators were served notice for being instrumental in getting the revised plans for development work passed from the BMC general council that led to an additional financial burden of Rs 84 crores on the BMC. Two former municipal commissioners were also served notices by the Lokayukta in the matter. The corporators expressed displeasure that they have to bear the burnt of a collective decision.
The meeting was basically organised to discuss the strategy for the twin meeting of the general council to be held on December 26. While the members consented with the proposals of constructing parking and neighbourhood centres at Moti Masjid and Jumerati, they expressed displeasure over the proposal of the cancellation of the `energy from garbage scheme’ saying that the BJP corporators had vehemently opposed the initiation of the proposal at the first place.
The corporators also suggested that committees should be formed to select sportspersons for the Mayor’s Trophy and other awards proposed. They mentioned that though the plan to encourage sportspersons is good, the BMC administration is not taking proper steps in the matter.
Chairman of BMC Ramdayal Prajapati, leader of opposition Ashok Pandey, general secretary of the corporators’ group N S Pal and deputy leader of opposition Mukesh Rai were present.
