nmmc-sec-deokarThe NMMC Secretary Chandrakant Deokar has sent a report of corporators who remained absent for most general body meetings to Commissioner Vijay Nahata almost two months back. The administration is to take action against these corporators under the BMC Act of 1949. NMMC Secretary Chandkrakant Deokar has sent a report on those corporators who remained absent in most of the general body meetings of NMMC. These include corporators like Digha’s NCP Corporator Ganesh Thakur, Koperkhairane NCP’s corporator Anand Patil, Shiv Sena Corporator Daymanti Achre and former Mayor Manisha Bhoir. The most unfortunate thing is that Koperkhairane corporator Anand Patil was also a ward committee chairman but despite this he was absent for 27 out of the 40 ward meetings held. He was also absent for 42 general body meetings. On the other hand Daymanti Achre was absent for 43 general body meetings and the list of poor attendees also includes former Mayor Manisha Bhoir. Despite being the Mayor of the city for 2.5 years and knowing the significance of the general body meetings Manisha Bhoir was absent for 41 meetings. Even though the Secretariat dept. of NMMC sent the report to the administration almost two months ago, the administration did not take any action. And even if it did with the tenure of corporators coming to an end, the action would mean little. It comes as a shock that the NMMC Secretary Chandrakant Deokar sent a report on absenteeism so late when the BMC Act 1949 clearly states that unless you are ill or there are other compulsions, and you remain absent for more than three meetings then the corporator would come under the category of defaulting corporators. Moreover the report does not mention the name of Navi Mumbai Shiv Sena Chief Vijay Chougule. Everyone is witness that Vijay Chougule was never present in majority of the general body meetings. Then how has is name not come up in the report is a million dollar question that only NMMC Secretary Chandrakant Deokar can answer. With bureau inputs, Monika Bhosale for NMTV News.
