Nashik, Sep 23 : The state government will not allow the formation of a single member ward just to manage the Mumbai Municipal Corporation elections, says Raj Thakre of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS).
Raj Thackeray has been on tour in Nashik since yesterday. This is his tour for the upcoming municipal elections and its preparations. This time he spoke to reporters. He said that the state government announced the ward structure for the municipal elections yesterday. It has one member for Mumbai Municipal Corporation and three members elsewhere in the state. This is all their political instinct. Did the government decide to form a one-member ward to manage the elections? That begs the question.
We used to form wards in the way we wanted and win elections by pouring money. Why do people bother with this system, why do people want to vote for 3-3 candidates instead of one? This question has been raised by Raj Thackeray. It is not right and legal to do what the people want. The Election Commission should take action on this, said Raj.
He said about the municipal corporation wards, Ward 2, Ward 3, Ward 4 What kind of game is going on? Are you going to form a ward of three MLAs, three MPs tomorrow ?. Gram Panchayat, Zilla Parishad has 1-1 candidates and NMC has only wards, this is to their advantage. The government has made a mockery of the election. “I urge the people to go to court and go to the Election Commission,” he said.
He said about erected the hoarding in various places in the city, he said there is not good to erected the hoarding in the city and do not made city as ugly after erected the hoarding in the city.
