After bringing the Shiv Sena back to power in the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), party executive president Uddhav Thackeray is planning some good governance in the civic body.

Realising that the Sena will have to deliver the goods to be in the good books of the people, Thackeray on Monday called a meeting of his newly elected corporators and gave them a run down on what he was expecting from the civic body.

He set a five-point agenda for the Sena corporators. It includes:
1 No unauthorised structure should be allowed by every corpoator in his or her ward.
2 Every corporator should publish his annual performance report and put it before the voters.
3 Party’s central office should be informed about the work done by each corporator.
4 They should be accessible to the people. A letter box should be kept in each ward for citizens to send their complaints.
5 Quarterly meetings of the corporators with the party to review their performance.

Thackeray told HT that he would be personally paying attention to the work being done by his party’s elected representatives in the civic body.

Interestingly, Uddhav’s estranged cousin Raj who formed his Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) in his every meeting has alleged that illegal encroachment in the city has been neglected by the BMC administration and saffron alliance (Sena-BJP) being the ruling party should be held responsible for surfacing of these new slums.
