Maha CM's claims on Mumbai potholes bogus: Nirupam

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

The today alleged that Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis' assurances regarding repairing potholes in are "bogus" and that the Sena-ruled lacks adequate material to fill craters.

president said the metropolis needs 2500 tonnes of cold mix, a bitumen-based material used to repair potholes.

He claimed that the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has only 40 tonnes of cold mix available with it.

"So pothole are here to stay. CM @Dev_Fadnavis promise on the floor of Assembly is bogus. Mumbaikars have no option but to face lots of bumpy drives in coming weeks," the former MP said in a tweet.

Fadnavis had yesterday told the Lower House that the number of potholes in during monsoon had come down drastically. He had also said that the civic body has started using an upgraded cold mix technology to fill potholes during rainy season.
