Thumbs down Why Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) should NOT be run by Shiv Sena - BJP combine after elections

Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) elections will be held in 2017.

I have been living in Mumbai for quite some time now.

The BMC has been run by the Shiv Sena - BJP combine for the 15 years or so. Its time for a change.

No, I dont want the stupid and ineffective Congress nor the scam master NCP to come into power in BMC.

I dont mind AAP or anyone else but not Shiv Sena - BJP.

Two simple reasons -

1) Pot hole filled roads or rather Pot Holes with a little road here and there
I understand that we will never be a non corrupt nation, but we can definitely aim for being a 'less corrupt' nation. Shiv Sena BJP combine has been in power for 15 odd years and have been so complacent and corrupt that Mumbai has never had good roads.

If a political party running the civic body cannot even give good roads in 15 years, then what are they really doing?

Nobody is a Anna Hazare demanding a super clean zero corruption BMC, but the least expectation is good roads.

Both parties have convenient excuses like 'This road is maintained by MMRDA, MSRDC, etc etc'. Assuming their excuses are genuine, one still wonders why the roads maintained by BMC are still so dismal?

Making good roads and maintaining them is not rocket science. Just look at Gujarat roads or for that matter roads in Punjab for starters.


2) Water clogged Mumbai every monsoon.
Since birth, every Mumbaikar knows that roads get water logged in monsoon. This again is an area where you dont need rocket science.


Unless the arrogant Shiv Sena and the complacent BJP get their act together, I am sure Mumbaikars wont mind a 'Jhadoo' waving gang of new corporators running the show come next elections.

Re: Why Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) should NOT be run by Shiv Sena - BJP combine after elections

After a long time, i have seen something to my liking (and to Swamiji's dislike) come from SS. The last thing they did was to build Mumbai Pune Expressway and 50 flyovers in Mumbai in 97-98.

Enjoy the nightlife


Aditya Thackeray discusses Mumbai nightlife plan with CM Devendra Fadnavis
PTI | Feb 17, 2015, 05.43PM IST

"Necessary laws would be amended so that the financial capital can have a nightlife by the end of the year," Aditya Thackeray said.
MUMBAI: Yuva Sena chief Aditya Thackeray said here he has discussed plans for revival of the vibrant Mumbai nightlife with Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis.

"I had a meeting with @CMOMaharashtra on my proposal for #MumbaiNightLife. I will tweet details soon, good news," he posted on Twitter on Monday.

"Necessary laws would be amended so that the financial capital can have a nightlife by the end of the year," Aditya Thackeray later told a TV channel.

Re: Why Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) should NOT be run by Shiv Sena - BJP combine after elections

sena is a heavy-handed hot-headed party. probably the only political party which will retaliate with equal force to those who go on rampage (including killing) at the drop of a hat. in all other respects, it is not very different from any other political party of india. please give credit where it is due.

Re: Why Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) should NOT be run by Shiv Sena - BJP combine after elections

Sena and BJP need to understand that people don't care for anything but performance now. If you sit on your asses don't expect people to vote you back via any muscle or money power. In this respect I welcome AAP that they are presenting an alternative and keeping the established parties on their feet. Only they need to be more mature and grounded, and most importantly deliver.

Shiv Sena was a need of the hour back in the day. I have utmost respect for Balasaheb Thakrey.

After his demise, the party has become leader less. Uddhav is not leader material. He let Sanjay Raut trot around like the head of the part. He never reigned in the nonsense Sanjay Raut spewed in the party mouth piece Saamana.

Also during the recent vidhan sabha elections, the way Uddhav played his cards was so immature, arrogant and utlimately stupid.

Well, enough of giving second chances to non performers.

If you cant give us simple good roads, then we dont mind zhaduwalas to take charge. At least we will get clean and good roads.

AAP... really?

Two simple reasons -

Okay...

1) Pot hole filled roads or rather Pot Holes with a little road here and there

You will be unfair to fault Shiv Sena for pot holes. Surely someone somewhere knows real problem, if a nitwit like me does?

Mumbai is a monsoon city. When it rains, it rains for days.

Mumbai is not a city where roads and streets should have been made of tar and gravel. Non-stop rain, tar, gravel, and heavy traffic aren't too fond of each other, don't make good buddies.

Shiv Sena is not in charge of building new concrete roads. Who was? Maharashtra state govt... Congress and its allies ever since independence? Filling up pot holes has been a constant source of corruption ever since...

You are looking at 20+ years time frame to asphalt the roads...



2) Water clogged Mumbai every monsoon.

Most of Mumbai is below sea level. High tide will have a lot to do with the floods... rain water has no where to run. It is state governments responsibility to provide catchment areas for rain water with proper drainage system. You are looking at no less than 20 years time frame...

AAP... really?

Clean and good roads, but their priority for use will be -
1. Holding Dharnas against Ambani.
2. Setting up shops for the small business
3. Tents for all the Bhaiyyas unable to build a slum
4. Traffic

If BJP and SS can't wake up and smell the coffee.. then they should bite the dust. Akalis in Punjab are going to as well.. they'd better not waste money on campaigning.

Infact keeping it open all night wont generate any hafta,hafta is only to keep open beyond the closing time.

Yes, hope is all we have.. and the onus is on those running the govts/govt depts. One feels handling the press seems to be the biggest issue.

Most of the BJP supporters among few friends I talk to, they claim to be awfully disgusted at party spokespersons. Who told them to appear on known anti-BJP news channels during Delhi campaign?... be seen licking bungholes of known traitors to the land?... day after day, night after night? Vote banks are intact, and there is absolutely no way BJP can convert them to its ideology, sooner it learns, the better. Certain section of the press if left ignored is the least of the problem BJP will have with its support base. Press is not the problem, communication has become a great hurdle between the party and its supporters.

Re: Why Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) should NOT be run by Shiv Sena - BJP combine after elections

I've seen and felt the same sentiment for how bjp handled press .. And how spokesmen were found lacking. Don't they read newspapers and social media, do they go and meet people to seek opinions? Have they stopped listening to cadres? Join bjp with sms etc.. How will you empower those who wish to join party and nation building efforts?
