These include Sunil Prabhu, Ramesh Korgaonkar, Prakash Phaterpekar and Ajay Choudhari who have voted against the BJP ruled NMC in the city in the recent budget session of the state. With this, they have called upon the state to take necessary action to restore the gleam of the city’s financial state.
With the speaker Nana Padole also from the city accepted the motion, he has issued a notice to the local authorities and the Urban Development Minister Mr. Eknath Shinde the top SS Leader to come out with the detailed report about the city’s civic body financial situation.
