Thane: Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) MP Supriya Sule on Sunday asked why the Centre was keeping an eye on the fixed deposits of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) when it claims to have enough funds of its own.

Her statement comes days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s public meeting in Mumbai, where he took a dig at the Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena faction that controlled the cash-rich BMC for decades, saying that keeping money in fixed deposits (FDs) would not benefit the public and that the taxpayers’ money should be used for development.

Referring to the PM’s remarks, Sule asked, “Why should the FDs of the BMC be encashed? If the Centre claims that it has enough funds, why is it keeping an eye on the Mumbai civic body’s FDs?” The Lok Sabha member from Baramati constituency in Pune district was responding to a query by reporters on the sidelines of an event in Thane.
