franchise to choose representatives for 10 city corporations on February 21.

BJP eyeing on BMC funds, says Uddhav Thackeray
Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray recently claimed that BJP was “eyeing” the funds of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation.
“BMC is probably the only corporation in the country which is not in debt but has huge money in the banks, which the BJP is eyeing. But we will not let them get hold of the money because this is people’s money….BJP can stoop to the lowest level for its motives,” Thackeray said, addressing his
final rally ahead of February 21 civic polls in Mumbai.
