The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation published the final list of the electoral wards for the forthcoming civic election, on Monday. It will soon be published in the gazette. There is no change in ward reservation.
The BMC election department declared reservation of 236 wards on May 31. Then the civic body invited suggestions and objections over ward reservations. It received over 232 suggestions and objections. After considering them, the BMC announced the final list of ward reservations. According to a BMC official, there is no change in ward reservation.
However, the Congress has decided to challenge ward reservation in the Bombay High Court. “How can BMC publish the final list without a hearing on the suggestions and objections? We are going to appeal to the court against this by filling a petition this week,” said former opposition leader in the BMC, Ravi Raja.
