Mundhe, who belongs to the 2005 batch of IAS officers is famous for his no-nonsense attitude and has often conflicted with the public legislatures at many of his postings.

From past few days, the Municipal Commissioner is continuously appealing people to take preventive measures in the backdrop of the spread of novel virus in Nagpur. Meanwhile, Nagpur Mayor Sandeep Joshi was also home quarantined recently. Nagpur is witnessing a surge in the spread of contagion and now has formed a four member committee to review the situation.
