Pune municipal corporation 2022: NCP moves Supreme Court to quash ward formation decision; Leaders entered Delhi

Pune municipal corporation 2022: Pune municipal corporation  elections are on the horizon and the Shinde government has once again shocked the Mahavikas Aghadi government by changing the decision of the ward structure. A three-member ward structure was created for the upcoming  elections. It has been decided to change that ward structure to a four-member ward structure. The NCP in Pune has taken an aggressive stand for the demand to change the decision of the ward structure. NCP has approached the court. NCP leaders from Pune have reached Delhi to appeal to the Supreme Court. 

The state government has changed its decision regarding municipal elections. NCP’s senior Pune leader Ankush Kakade, city president Prashant Jagtap, corporators Sachin Dodke, Baburao Chandere, Mahendra Pathare have approached the Supreme Court and are going to file a petition on Wednesday to demand that the decision to restructure the ward should be annulled and the elections should be held on time.

80 percent of the election process has been completed. The three-member composition has also been finalised. However, BJP has now created a four-member structure for its benefit. NCP city president Prashant Jagtap has expressed the opinion that while all the work for the upcoming elections has been done, time is being wasted by taking this decision. He had clarified that NCP will approach the court to cancel this decision of the government. So leaders and activists have gone to Delhi to demand justice.

The Nationalist Congress had said from the beginning that it would oppose the change of schedule and would go to court if time required. The Election Commission has completed the work of preparing the draft, hearing objections and suggestions and publishing the voter list, and now only the dates of the elections are left to be announced. In that case, the NCP had made it clear that it would remain opposed to changing the entire plan.
