In Worli, it’s raining projects. The BMC has been showering disproportionate love on this south Mumbai pocket, the constituency of state minister and chief minister’s son Aaditya Thackeray, prompting the opposition to urge the civic body to pay equal attention to other wards in the city. In the latest instance, four new tenders worth crores have been issued to beautify Worli, apart from two ongoing ones.
In the last financial year, G south ward, which includes Worli and Prabhadevi, received over Rs 15 crore for such projects, while M east ward comprising Deonar and Mankhurd got less than Rs 9 crore.
