Mumbai, (The Hindu): City Congress president Sanjay Nirupam started a campaign to count potholes in the city on Thursday.

Mr. Nirupam said the Shiv Sena-led Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) “miserably failed” in fixing potholes. He held the BMC responsible for the death of four people on potholed roads in the city.

Mr. Nirupam kicked off the Aao Pothole Geeney (Come, let’s count potholes) campaign in Sion with party workers beating drums and staging a dharna near the craters. He urged residents to click photographs of potholed roads and share them on mobile numbers provided by the BMC.

‘Blatant lies’

Mr. Nirupam attacked Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis over his statement in the Assembly that the number of potholes in the city had reduced this year. He said, “Mr. Fadnavis is lying blatantly in the Assembly. The grim reality is most roads in Mumbai are ridden with potholes. Mumbaikars have been facing nature’s fury for the past few days, but neither the BJP nor the Shiv Sena leaders are present in the city. The BMC commissioner said in a standing committee meeting that everything is alright in the city.”

Mr. Nirupam said the drive would continue till the BMC filled the potholes in the city. The Mumbai Congress tweeted, “CM @Dev_Fadnavis says number of potholes in Mumbai has reduced, well let’s do a reality check, whatsapp pictures of potholes in your wards to the numbers given by the BMC. MRCC President @sanjaynirupam initiated a unique protest against potholes from Pratiksha Nagar.”
