INDIA Team Latestly|

A Shiv Sena legislator made a contractor sit on a waterlogged road in Mumbai & asked people to dump garbage on him to "punish" him for allegedly not getting drains cleaned properly. Video of the incident went viral on June 12. In the video, Chandivali Shiv Sena MLA Dilip Lande and several others are seen asking the contractor to sit on the waterlogged road. As the contractor sits, a person walks up to him and pushes him. The MLA is then seen directing two men as they lift heaps of garbage and slush and dump them over the contractor. “Sit down in the water. Put the garbage on him,” Lande, along with his supporters, is seen saying in the video. In a statement he later shared with the media, Lande said those responsible for preventing waterlogging in the area are not showing up to do their job. Meanwhile, BJP leaders slammed Lande for his action and raised questions on the funds spent on nullah desilting as a Shiv Sena MLA has accepted that the cleaning work had not been done properly. Kirit Somaiya, while calling it “gundagardi”, tweeted, “BMC means Nexus of Mafia Contractors & Gundagiri of Shivsena.”
