Party leaders to visit wards where it doesn’t have any corporator

Pimpri: Newly elected Leader of Opposition at the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC), Datta Sane will be launching ‘Leader of the Opposition at your doorstep’ campaign in the city.  

He announced this at the party’s review meeting held at Bhosari. Sane said he would expose the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) wrongdoings in PCMC over the last one year. Sane said he is going to meet people personally to expose BJP’s corruption in PCMC.

This initiative will be launched in wards where NCP does not have a single corporator. Former corporators will accompany Sane in these wards. Sane claimed that in last 15 years, NCP succeeded in changing the face of the city under the leadership of Ajit Pawar. He added that NCP workers would explain these facts to people by meeting them personally.  

He said earlier, former Mayor Dr Vaishali Ghodekar initiated the ‘Mayor at your doorstep’ programme and it received a good response from citizens. After a long interval, a similar initiative is being implemented by NCP when the party is in opposition. According to sources, with this initiative, Sane will attempt to regain lost ground for the party in Pimpri Chinchwad. 

At the review meeting, Sane said, “In the past one year, the ruling BJP has looted lakhs of rupees of taxpayers. In last four years, the Central and State governments did not bring funds worth single rupee to the city. Only shallow promises were made.”
