Senior NCP leader Ajit Pawar today said if voted to power in the Mumbai civic body polls slated early next year, his party would provide template for development of the metropolis. Addressing the NCP's city unit workers, Pawar said all civic bodies run by his party are functioning well and there had been no allegation of irregularities. The former Maharashtra Minister said traffic woes and unplanned dumping of garbage are some of the issues the Shiv Sena-BJP ruled BMC has "failed" to address. In Nagpur, where the civic body is run by the BJP, civic employees are not being paid their salaries.
In Nashik, people are fed up with the Raj Thackeray-led MNS whom they had voted to power in 2012, Pawar alleged. But people of Pune and adjoining township of Pimpri- Chinchwad, where the civic bodies are ruled by the NCP, are happy with the party's performance, he claimed. "If Mumbaikars give power to us, we will show them what development is all about," Pawar maintained. The NCP leader said farmers and the common man are fed up with the policies of the BJP-led Government in Maharashtra.
