MUMBAI: Corporators from across parties on Saturday slammed BMC for reinstating two engineers removed from civic services after being indicted in Kamla Mills fire probe report. Vinod Mishra (BJP) said their reinstatement must be scrapped immediately as it was not as per rules. “This seems to be a clear-cut attempt to bring back tainted engineers in the name of Covid. These are the Sachin Wazes of BMC,” Mishra said.
TOI had reported that BMC reinstated assistant engineer M G Shelar and junior engineer Dharmaraj Shinde, who were charged with criminal negligence, dereliction of duty, connivance with mala fide intention and failure to take action.
“Reinstating people responsible for the death of 14 innocent people, and putting them back in charge two years later is a big blow to the spirit of Mumbai. This has to be recalled,” said Samajwadi Party MLA and corporator Rais Shaikh.
