'Communal forces get monetary support from Mumbai Civic body'

Monday February 13, 2012 06:11:14 PM, Agencies

Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan Sunday alleged that with the money pumped in from the Mumbai Civic Body, people belonging to RSS, Shiv Sena and BJP are creating havoc in the state.


"The communal forces are in power in Mumbai Municipal Corporation since last sixteen years. We have to dislodge them from power. It is because the monetary support from the BMC is used by the people belonging to Shiv Sena, RSS and BJP to create havoc in the entire state", media reports quoted the Chief Minister as saying while interacting with Muslim intellectuals in Mumbai on Sunday.


The Chief Minister was interacting with the Muslim community elites at Islam Gymkhana as part of an interaction organized by the Congress minority wing in the run-up to the Mumbai civic elections.


The Chief Minister during the meeting also lamented Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS).


"Maharashtra Navnirman Sena is another face of Shiv Sena. They are using communal politics to spread enmity between the people", he said.


The Muslim intellectuals however sought answers from the government about the pending issues and complained that 'they are approached only at the time of elections'.


Of the many subjects raised by Muslim intellectuals and leaders, the principal complaint was the unfair handling (of cases) and alleged atrocities by the home department. Advocate Mubeen Solkar while highlighting the issue said that innocent youngsters (from the community) continue to be targeted by the police. They are being unfairly picked up in terror-related cases, he said.


President of Jamiatul Ulema Maharashtra Gulzar Azmi, objected to the police manual proscribing a cop from sporting a beard at work. He cited cases in Nashik and Amravati where Muslim policemen were inconvenienced by the norm.


Following the barrage of questions from the Muslim intellectuals the Chief Minister admitted that he had received complaints of atrocities against Muslims by the police.

Other issues raised during the meeting were possession of Ismail Yusuf College land, allotment of land to minority educational institutions, appointment of Aukaf board chairperson, and time-bound implementation of various developmental issues.
