Mumbai Congress launches campaign to mock BMC on potholes

Mumbai Congress president Sanjay Nirupam launched a campaign to count the potholes in the city in an attempt to ridicule the civic body Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).

The Congress leader alleged that the Shiv Sena-led BMC has 'miserably failed' to deal with the potholes that have been responsible for death of four people in various accidents in the city and suburbs.

Nirupam and other workers of the party beat drums and played music near craters in suburban Sion as part of the "Aao Pothole Geeney" (Come, let's count potholes) campaign.

"I have launched this campaign against the backdrop of four deaths due to potholes in Mumbai in this rainy season and many more such deaths reported in the past few years," the Congress leader said.

He urged the citizens to click photographs of pothole-ridden roads and share them on mobile numbers provided by the BMC.
