Six corporators in trouble for ‘supporting’ illegal buildings
Shatrughan Kate, one of the corporators who was present in the mayor’s cabin during the incident, denied that he had anything to do with the press meet. “I was there to demand that the buildings of citizens who have paid their MSEB bills, phones bills and have proper property documents should be spared. And accordingly, the administration has announced the decision the same day,” said Kate.
Other corporators including Prashant Shitole, Moreshwar Bhondve, Ajit Gavahane, Nitin Landge and Nitin Kalje who were reportedly seen at the press meet also denied the allegations.
MLA Vilas Lande said the corporators every day come to PCMC.
“It is their right to come to PCMC. We had not invited them. They walked in to inquire about the commotion that was going on. Some corporators made their own demands. Two of us held our own press conference,” he said.
Appreciating the “good work” done by the civic chief, Lande said,”If other civic bodies are not taking action against illegal structures, why is the PCMC in such a hurry. We want to check whether the high court order was indeed for PCMC or for other civic bodies as well,” he said, adding that PCMC chief should adopt a humanitarian view against illegal structures.
