In a recent development, Mumbai BJP President Ashish Shelar has called for an investigation and the release of a ‘White Paper’ concerning the water issues plaguing Mumbai. However, his demands have drawn sharp criticism from the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), with National Spokesperson Clyde Crasto labeling them as “Selective Amnesia” and potentially stemming from dissatisfaction with Chief Minister Eknath Shinde.

Shelar’s accusations against the Shiv Sena, which has held control of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) for 25 years, have been dismissed by the NCP as baseless and unverified. Crasto highlighted Shelar’s oversight, noting that the BJP was in a long-standing alliance with the Shiv Sena during the period in question.

The timing and nature of Shelar’s statements have raised eyebrows within political circles, prompting speculation about his motivations. Crasto suggested that Shelar’s discontent with CM Eknath Shinde, who oversaw the BMC during the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government, may be a contributing factor. As Shinde held the position of Urban Development Minister, which included oversight of the BMC, Shelar’s criticism appears directed at his former ally.

Crasto emphasized the need for transparency and accountability across party lines, asserting that if Shelar advocates for an investigation, the same scrutiny should apply to all BJP-affiliated individuals, including corporators.
