The BJP corporators led by mayor Satish Kulkarni had handed over a cheque amounting to Rs 10.05 lakh to city president Girish Palve. This decision of the party corporators is widely being opposed from all levels. Major political parties have fired arrows of criticism at the BJP saying that party loyalty has become more important than Maharashtra dharm.

Financial aid is pouring in from all quarters to deal with the corona crisis. Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had appealed to the philanthropists to donate generously to the CM’s Relief fund. Political parties, entrepreneurs, businessmen, common people are contributing to the relief fund voluntarily.

In the meantime, the Bharatiya Janata Party had ordered party leaders and people’s representatives to contribute to the party’s disaster fund. Former chief minister Fadnavis had also said that aid should be deposited in the party’s fund instead of the CM’s fund. Accordingly, the BJP municipal corporators in the city deposited their April salary in the party’s disaster relief fund instead of the CM”s Relief Fund.

Congress corporators donated salaries to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund wheras BJP corporators deposited money in the party’s disaster fund. This decision is uncalled for and unacceptable. It shows that the BJP gives more importance to party than state of Maharashtra.

It is the condemnable act of BJP corporators to stay in Maharashtra and heap praises on party. The members are raising fund for party when the state in dire need of financial help.
