Mumbai: Mumbai Congress President Sanjay Nirupam today demanded Maha CM Devendra Fadnavis to order an inquiry into the conduct of BMC Commissioner Ajoy Mehta in the Jogeshwari land deal scam. Mr. Nirupam also slammed CM Fadnavis and accused him of protecting BMC Commissioner Ajoy Mehta despite repeated demands being made by the leader himself to suspend Mehta due to increasing discrepancies in the functioning of the civic body.

Sanjay Nirupam said, “Devendra Fadnavis has time and again gone out of his way to protect Ajoy Mehta and tried to cover his wrongdoings in the BMC which has cost the civic body hundreds of crores of rupees. At first, the BMC Commissioner completely left the case to the Legal Department while as it was his prime responsibility to look into it. Now, Mehta has issued orders for the transfer of Sanjay Darade, chief of BMC’s DP Dept to the less significant bridges department for poor supervision of the Jogeshwari land deal. Why is the CM not suspending Ajoy Mehta instead even though everyone is aware of the fact that the BMC Commissioner is the main culprit behind this entire scam?”

“Smaller fish are being caught and the big ones are escaping only because the CM is allowing it to happen. By protecting his favorite people in the civic body, he is only encouraging the delinquencies which are already posing a threat to the lives of Mumbaikars on a daily basis only because of the incompetence of the Mehta- led BMC”, added Nirupam.

The Mumbai Congress Chief had led a delegation of Congress Corporators and met with Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone 1) to file an FIR against the corrupt activities of the BMC Commissioner and some top officials in the civic body in the month of August. Prior to this, the Mumbai Congress president has exposed Ajoy Mehta's involvement in multiple scams which has looted the Mumbaikars off thousands of crores.
