Sena thrilled as survey says BMC most transparent

Mumbai: The Shiv Sena is thrilled at the economic survey 2016-17 and has been waving the it at BJP as it was facing criticism for graft in the BMC.

The Union finance ministry’s document tabled in Parliament on Tuesday placed the BMC at the apex in terms of transparency and accountability. Shiv Sena leaders used the opportunity to target the BJP, saying that the Sena ruled BMC was more transparent than civic bodies in states managed by the BJP.

Yuva Sena chief Aaditya Thackeray tweeted: “The Economic Survey of the Finance Ministry ranks Mumbai’s BMC best on Transparency. I congratulate Mayor @imsnehalambekar, the Municipal Commissioner Mehta ji and all others key to running the BMC.”

Both parties parted their ways on transpa rency after being together in the BMC for nearly 20 years. Shiv Sena corporator Yashodhar Phanse said that they are saying that the BMC is most transparent institution, but the BJP is misleading people. However, the BJP chose to downplay the Economic Survey . “The road and desilting scams are a reality,” said BJP spokesperson Niranjan Shetty .
