Even as senior congress leaders in Nagpur are demanding transfer of NMC Commissioner Tukaram Mundhe for his way of handling COVID-19 crisis in the city, an online petition – People’s Confidence Motion – opposing this demand has garnered more than 20,000 votes in just two days.
The petition, which is started by an anonymous person, is addressed to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. It mentions Mundhe’s extraordinary actions to fight the COVID-19 crisis in Nagpur. The petition claims that ‘politicians with vested interests are planning to introduce a formal no-confidence motion against an honest and hard-working officer like Mundhe.’
Nation Next had reported yesterday as to how Congress MLA Vikas Thakre and Maharashtra Assembly Speaker Nana Patole are demanding Mundhe’s transfer. Thakre had gone further to say that Mundhe should be punished.
