BMC IS RUN BY PRIVATE CONTRACTORS’

congress-corporator-1The MCGM should scrap the contract system for minor civic work and simply get it done by internal civic staff, a Congress corporator has demanded from the MCGM administration. Congress Corporators at MCGM have alleged that MCGM is now run by a lobby of contractors who are responsible for the bad condition of roads and other city infrastructure. They have demanded that projects like the repair of potholes on roads, and the demolition of minor encroachments should be done using civic employees who are trained for this job. They pointed out that civic workers did precisely this kind of work until two decades ago, after which it began to be outsourced to private contractors. The proposal to clear that bill will be tabled before the committee next week.
