Congress members demanded the removal of Municipal Commissioner Dr. Jairaj Phatak, calling him an RSS man and accusing him of favouring the ruling Shiv-Sena-BJP combine in the MCGM. Outraged congress women members threw bangles at the Commissioner when a delegation of them led by Adv Yusuf Abrahani had gone to meet the commissioner. The drama unfolded when Congress MLA Yusuf Abrahani led a delegation of opposition corporators and met MCGM Commissioner Dr. Jairaj Phatak. The Congress activists tried to force bangles on Phatak’s wrist, distributed posters and shouted slogans saying, “Dr Jairaj Phatak is an RSS man, Dr Jairaj Phatak go back.” Alleging discrimination against the Opposition, Congress leaders have written a letter to Chief Minister Ashok Chavan asking him to sack Phatak. The protest was triggered by the water problems in Abrahani’s constituency. He said they had written about this to the Chief Minister letter and would get other elected representatives, including MLAs and corporators, to join the demand.
