ST CORRESPONDENT

A senior corporator of the party said, “The party got majority in civic polls in 2017 and we have 98 corporators in the PMC. However, there are limited options in different committees. The party must work on one-person-one-post policy so that more corporators can get a chance to work at different posts in the PMC.”

PUNE: In the State Assembly elections, three corporators who were holding key posts in the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) got elected as Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs). 

This is now causing unrest in the BJP with many corporators pointing out the unsaid rule of ‘one-person-one post’ with respect to crucial positions in the party and the government.

Pune Mayor Mukta Tilak, Standing Committee Chairman Sunil Kamble and Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Limited (PMPML) Director Siddharth Shirole were elected from Kasba Peth, Pune Cantonment and Shivajinagar constituencies respectively. 

Tilak is also on the board of directors of PMPML and Pune Smart City Development Corporation Limited (PSCDCL). 

Kamble also holds the posts of director of PMPML and PSCDCL while Shirole is a PMPML director. 

A senior corporator of the party said, “The party got majority in civic polls in 2017 and we have 98 corporators in the PMC. However, there are limited options in different committees. The party must work on one-person-one-post policy so that more corporators can get a chance to work at different posts in the PMC.”

Another corporator said, “Posts of Mayor and Standing Committee Chairman are the most influential posts in the corporation.”

When Sakal Times contacted Kamble, he said, “The party will take the final call on that. We cannot decide. We will follow the order of the party.”
