Mira-Bhayander Municipal Corporation(MBMC) corporators fly to Kerala on Rs.23Lakh study tour - wasting public money

The aam admi might be reeling under inflation but that hasn't stopped seventy corporators of the Mira-Bhayander Municipal Corporation (MBMC) from embarking on a Rs 23-lakh study tour of Kerala. The MBMC, which has 84 corporators, will bear the cost, which includes flight tickets and accommodation.

The tour comes at a time when several crucial projects, including construction of roads and laying of sewerage pipes, have been put on hold due to paucity of funds.

According to sources, the study tour plan was passed by the civic standing committee without any uproar. Leaders from the ruling Congress-NCP combine and Opposition parties-Bharatiya Janata Party ( BJP), Shiv Sena, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) and Janata Dal-are part of the tour.

The netas, who will leave on Wednesday and return on January 24, will study the functioning of the municipal corporations in Kerala.

In the last few years, MBMC corporators have toured Nepal, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Jammu & Kashmir, Shimla and Darjeeling, to name a few, to study the functioning of local bodies there. However, not a single report has been submitted to the municipal corporation till date, said a source.

When contacted, mayor Tulsidas Mhatre defended the tour saying it would help the leaders improve the functioning of MBMC.

"If past instances are anything to go by, then the leaders would be joined by family members," said a source, adding, "After spending half-a-day on visiting municipal corporations, the netas will, in all likelihood, spend the rest of the week sight-seeing."

The tour comes at a time when several crucial projects, including construction of roads and laying of sewerage pipes, have been put on hold due to paucity of funds.
