Sena ransacks BMC engineer's office over water crisis

MUMBAI: In an unprecedented move, a Shiv Sena mob descended on Sena-controlled BMC on Tuesday and ransacked the cabin of chief hydraulic engineer Dineshchandra Gondalia to protest against the water crisis in the city. The hydraulic department is in charge of distribution and supply of water.

Sena workers, led by Tukaram Kate, who contested the assembly elections on a Sena ticket, came to the civic headquarters to lodge a complaint against the inequal distribution and supply of water to several parts of Chembur. But the protest turned violent and the angry mob, unhappy with the "excuses'' given by officials, broke the glass walls and tables in the office.

"Party workers give their blood and sweat to ensure residents get a continuous supply of water. But because of the lethargy of civic officials, who do not bother to maintain an equitable distribution of water across all areas, our hard work is going down the drain,'' Kate said. The mob included his wife and corporator Mangala Kate.

A case of unlawful assembly, rioting and causing damages has been registered by the Azad Maidan police station.
