Mumbai Mayor and Shiv Sena leader Snehal Ambekar has compared Prime Minister Narendra Modi with Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.

In an interview with the Afternoon Despatch & Courier, the 43-year-old said: “I admire Narendra Modi for his self-reliant way of working. But at some level, I feel his rule is quite like Hitler…

“This is bound to happen when power is concentrated in the hands of one man,” said Ambekar, a first-time municipal corporator.

Elected the city’s seventh woman and first Dalit woman mayor in September 2014, Ambekar has been seeking a red beacon for her vehicle.

The former Life Insurance Corp (LIC) officer claimed that her position in the city was akin to that of the chief minister.

“If a chief minister has red beacon, a mayor’s status is pretty similar in terms of a city,” she said.

Ambekar’s comments were the latest in a series of barbs the Shiv Sena has fired at the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party. Both parties are allies in the centre and in Maharashtra.
