“The Assembly polls are likely to take place in October. So, to avoid any issues due to the poll schedule, the elections for mayor and deputy mayor in these corporations have been postponed for three months,” an official said.
“The language used by mayor is an insult to all Mumbaikars. Rather than finding a way through peaceful talks, the mayor twisted the woman’s arm. Then, he lied, claiming that he didn’t and put the blame on the MNS for politicising the issue,” said NCP legislator Vidya Chavan.
After finding that the current civic policy for checks on advertisements does not have mannequins in its ambit,Mumbai mayor and Shiv Sena corporator Sunil Prabhu has planned to approach the Chief Minister to ask for a separate policy.
