In Mumbai Mahanagarpalika An officer is named as Chota Ambani- His lifestyle is of a Tycoon and he gets salary from E Ward and he works for B ward




By, Kamar Ansari

You will find it quite annoying that Country’s biggest Corporation MCGM has few officers who work in other Ward and get salary etc from other Ward. And if it happens in creamy area where there is a heavy scope of kickbacks there are dozens of such cases but only few see the lights.

Famous by the name CHOTA AMBANI an Ast Engineer Mr Suryavanshi has all the shots and story for a Bollywood film on him.

The reason why he is called Chota Ambani is that he has acquired properties and has investment worth of crores in foreign countries apart from Maharashtra.

As if now Mr Suryavanshi gets his attendance marked and his salary from E ward but he works in B ward for many years. For an Asst Engineer B ward is a creamy area because there are hoards of illegal construction happening in B ward. Full of Narrow lanes and dilapidated buildings this area is famous for illegal construction activities. There are umpteen numbers of buildings from 4 to 10th floor that are illegal.

Actually the tenants of old dilapidated buildings in the areas give it to LandMafiyas and they make its into a 10th floor building. In Masjid Bandar the commercial godowns of teenshed has been converted into a sprawling commercial hubs and all these happens with Asst Engineer of the ward . In B wards, in the name of action there is nothing to be taken into account and when there are pressure for action then the builder goes to court and takes a stay and it all happens hand-in-gloves with the Asst Engineers and these Engineers and other officers get kickbacks at Sq Ft rate. These Engineers work closely with the builders to get the desired stay on the property and charge extra fee from developers.

Mr Suryavanshi is exactly working for the same lobby of developers in B ward who have built thousands of unauthorised buildings and he is working to save these illegal buildings. Mr Suryavanshi type officers in wards keep their immediate officers happy and Ward’s AMC can do anything against them because they have connections with DMC and Adl MC city.
There is no any other Asst Engineer except Mr. Suryavanshi in this E wards (he too is not officially in E ward) while there are lots of post which stay vacant and E wards Asst MC Mr Nitin Arte has additional charge of 3 Engineers.

Sources say that Suryavanshi alias Chota Ambani has earned properties (benaami) worth of crores of rupees. He has also sent his brother in foreign country where they have also got properties worth of millions of rupees. There are Land Grabbers like Mairaj Rahmaan, Mehboob Soratiya, Saleem Masala and Motiwala type builders have given crores of rupees to Suryavanshi and as per the sources they have made their name and position in B ward too and all because of Mr Suryavanshi and these land grabbers are often seen having breakfast etc in B ward office.

When we tried to speak to E ward’s Asst MC he refuse to comment on this issue and when we brought out this issue to B ward Asst MC and asked to comment on Mr. Suryavanshi he also refuse to talk.

It is said that Suryavanshi keeps the officers of wards happy and that is the reason he is smoothly working on his plan and despite many complaints he continue to work in B ward and talking his Salary etc from E ward.


Maharashtra: MPCC expanded, Sanjay Nirupam bounces back




Three weeks after Congress President Sonia Gandhi reshuffled the Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC), four new vice-presidents and 3 additional Parliamentary Board members were appointed, here on Friday.

They are: Nana Gavande, Sachin Naik, Sanjay Rathod and Charulatha Tokas (MPCC Vice-Presidents), while Eknath Gaikwad, Sanjay Nirupam and Janardhan Chandurkar — all three ex-Mumbai Regional Congress Committee presidents – are named new Members of MPCC Parliamentary Board.

Sulking for nearly two years after he was removed as MRCC President in March 2019, the formidable Nirupam has apparently bounced back into favour with the party.

He had not campaigned for the party in the 2019 parliament and Assembly elections and had lost the Lok Sabha elections to Mumbai North-West constituency to Shiv Sena’s Gajanan Kirtikar.

The expansion comes three weeks after the party appointed Nana F. Patole, 57, as the new MPCC President, replacing Revenue Minister Balasaheb Thorat.

Besides Patole, the Congress named 6 Working Presidents, 10 Vice-Presidents and a jumbo 37-member Parliamentary Board in a widespread rejig of the party apparatus ahead of the crucial elections to various major civic bodies early next year, including BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation.

The 6 Working Presidents include leaders like Shivajirao Moghe, Basavaraj Patil, M. Arif Naseem Khan, Kunal Rohidas Patil, Chandrakant Handore and Pranati Sushilkumar Shinde.

The 10 Vice-Presidents are: Shirish Madhukarrao Chaudhari, Ramesh A. Bagwe, Hussain Dalwai, Mohan Joshi, Ranjit P. Kamble, Kailash K. Gorantyal, B. I. Nagrale, Sharad Aher, M. M. Shaikh, Manik M. Jagtap, and with 3 more – Nana Gavande, Sachin Naik, Sanjay Rathod and Charulatha Tokas – joining them, the strength has gone up to 14.

With the 3 latest additions – all senior leaders who have been former MPs or legislators – the strength of the 37-member Parliamentary Board has now gone up from 37 to 40.

Mohan S. Delkar ended life in Maharashtra ‘to get justice after death’, alleges Congress




The Maharashtra Congress on Wednesday contended that the Independent MP Mohan S. Delkar was fed up with the harassment of the Bharatiya Janata Party and chose to end his life in this state “to get justice after death”.

Delkar, the 7-time MP from the Union Territory of Dadra & Nagar Haveli, hanged himself in a Mumbai hotel room on Monday, sending shockwaves in national political circles.

A delegation of state Congress led by spokesperson Sachin Sawant, Raju Waghmare, Vinay Khamkar and others held a video-conference chat with Home Minister Anil Deshmukh and demanded a thorough investigation into the circumstances and the alleged role of the BJP behind Delkar’s tragic end.

“Elected representatives have the responsibility to make the laws of the country But Delkar became so helpless and desperate that he was forced to end his life,” Sawant said to the Home Minister.

On his part, Deshmukh gave them a hearing, accepted a two-page memorandum and assured that he would direct the Mumbai Police to do the needful in the matter.

The Congress said that Delkar had himself released a detailed video last year and spoke in the Lok Sabha, wherein he highlighted the torture he allegedly underwent at the behest of the BJP.

“He had mentioned the names of some BJP leaders in his video, and in his detailed suicide note, it is learnt that he has named several BJP functionaries, including Praful K. Patel, the Administrator of the UT who is a former Gujarat BJP Minister of State for Home said to be very close to the RSS and BJP leadership,” Sawant said.

The trio urged Deshmukh that against this backdrop, Delkar’s death must be thoroughly probed, and he probably chose to come to Mumbai and end his life as he was unsure of getting justice in his own UT.

“He must have come to Mumbai with an expectation from the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) Government that the culprits who compelled him to take the extreme step by harassing him would be punished by the law,” Sawant said.

Sawant, Waghmare and Khamkar also pointed out that many Opposition governments, prominent leaders, legislators and parliamentarians are being hounded in different states around the country, and the BJP at the Centre is also targeting the MVA government in the state by using Central investigating agencies against it.

“Incidents like Delkar’s suicide and the targeting of the Opposition raise questions whether there is democracy existing in the country now” they said.

The Maharashtra Congress on Tuesday said it wants a probe into the role of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) into the ‘suicide’ of Mohan S. Delkar, the Independent MP from the Union Territory of Dadra & Nagar Haveli.

State Congress Spokesperson Sachin Sawant said: “I will soon call on Home Minister Anil Deshmukh with a demand to investigate the role of BJP in the death of MP Mohanbai Delkar.”

Delkar, 58, was found hanging in his room in a south Mumbai hotel on Monday afternoon in a case of ‘suicide’ and the police have recovered a purported suicide note from the spot.

While the Marine Drive police have lodged an accident death report, his body has been sent for an autopsy to confirm the exact causes of his death, even as a preliminary probe has been initiated into the case.

On his part, Deshmukh condoled the demise of Delkar, terming the incident as ‘very shocking.’

“The news of the demise of Delkar, 7-time MP from Dadra & Nagar Haveli Lok Sabha constituency, committing suicide at a hotel in Mumbai is very shocking,” the state home minister tweeted last night.
