With opposition demanding arrest of former DMC Amrish Patnigire and the police naming NCP Corporator M K Madhvi co-accused in the Bhise scam, pressure is building on the ruling front at NMMC to come clean on their stance on the case. And the party seems to have prepared itself on media queries on the same. NMMC Standing Committee Chairman Sandeep Naik assured that action will be taken against top officials and corporators if proven guilty in the Multi-Crore Bhise scam. This is Standing Committee Chairman Sandeep Naik warning the NMMC administration, specifically former DMC Encroachment Amrish Patnigire of action if there are any problem or mistakes that were reported from the Bhise scam. Had the NMMC administration taken the warning of the Chairman seriously, one of the biggest scams of NMMC would have never happened. The most ironical part of this however is that two years from that warning, the Chairman’s own party colleague M K Madhvi has been named co-accused and former DMC Patnigire’s role in the scam has come under scanner too. So is the Chairman going to take action he had warned off in the Bhise case two years back? We got the answer from the horse’s mouth itself. Chairman Sandeep Naik has assured that assured that action will be taken against top officials and corporators if proven guilty in the Multi-Crore Bhise scam. With elections round the corner and one of their own corporators’ named as co-accused, the pressure on NCP to come clean on the scam is mounting by the day. Its going to be a challenge for Standing Committee Chairman Sandeep Naik to keep his word. With cameraperson Abhay Prasad, Zeba Warsia for NMTV News.
