Senior Congress leader Vijay Wadettiwar has alleged that there has been a Rs 5,000-crore scam in road works undertaken by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).
These road works are said to have been undertaken in the last five years. Speaking during a press conference, he said, “We have visited these roads and have shot their videos, which also contain the voices of residents of these localities. The contractor did not carry out the work but received payment for them. There is a huge nexus between the contractors and officials in the civic body. A judicial probe into the matter by senior retired officials must be instituted.
