A wake-up call for Shiv Sena- BJP Govt in Mumbai: Sanjay Nirupam

 Mumbai: Mumbai Congress President Sanjay Nirupam today launched the campaign ‘Aao Pothole Geeney’ (Come, let’s count the potholes) in the city at a time where there have been at least 4 deaths due to potholes in Mumbai in this rainy season and innumerable more in the past few years. In what is an acerbic Barb at the city's Civic body, Mumbai Congress led by Sanjay Nirupam today started a campaign called ‘Aao Pothole Geeney’. He started the campaign by landing up in one of Mumbai’s suburbs which has the highest number of potholes. At the same time, the Mumbai Congress Unit Chief is also urging people through an online campaign to click photographs of the roads wherever they find potholes and has shared the ward-wise contact details for Mumbaikars to send these pictures from their respective areas to the BMC.

Sanjay Nirupam said, “It is shocking that every year we have the same story. This year 4 people have died. And all that the BMC can say is that the roads are the same in all the areas, as if that is meant to make people feel better. What on earth does this mean? Clearly whether there are potholes, whether people are stranded in the rains, whether people are dying, the BMC has absolutely no concern. All the BMC wants to do is make its money. Mumbaikars are facing a huge problem while Shiv Sena and the BJP are in denial”.

“The Chief Minister is blatantly lying in the lower house by stating that the number of potholes in Mumbai have been reduced by more than half in the past 4 years. The reality is that most of the roads in Mumbai are filled with potholes. While Mumbaikars have been facing the wrath of heavy rainfalls since past few days, neither BJP nor Shiv Sena leaders are in Mumbai. The BMC Commissioner also went ahead to say in the standing committee that everything in Mumbai is alright”, added Nirupam.

Sanjay Nirupam was joined by Congress party workers as they launched this campaign. People in Mumbai have been highly inconvenienced with the rains yet again with major areas getting water-logged and life almost coming to a standstill.

Nirupam intends to carry on this campaign till the BMC effectively plugs most of the potholes in the city.
