The Mayor of Mumbai has asked the “culprits” of the Mumbai building collapse to accept responsibility
Mumbai is a city in India. Mayor Kishori Pednekar demanded on Thursday that those responsible for the residential complex collapse in Mumbai’s Malad accept responsibility, saying that if everyone was to blame, the disaster would not have occurred.
In a statement to the media, the Mayor further criticized the BJP for blaming the Shiv Sena for the tragedy, saying that the Opposition party in Maharashtra believes that only they are pure.
“Today, 11 individuals, including children, have died. When a building is classified as a C (i.e., it is beyond repair and must be demolished), the tenants must vacate the premises immediately. The perpetrators of the Malad incident should accept accountability. It’s more important to figure out who was in charge of the administration than it is to figure out who was in charge of the administration. It would not have happened if everyone had been accountable “Pednekar stated.
“If the BJP wants to bark, they are free to do so. They believe Shiv Sena is to blame for everything and that they are clean “When asked about the BJP’s allegations against the ruling party, she continued.
Meanwhile, Mumbai police said they will file a case against the owner of the residential structure that collapsed in the New Collector compound in Malad West on Wednesday night under Section 304 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
“The owner of the fallen structure and the contractor will face charges under Section 304 (2) of the Indian Penal Code (culpable homicide not amounting to murder). After hurricane Tauktae, they had lately made certain structural adjustments “Vishwas Nangre Patil, Joint Commissioner of Police (Law and Order), said.
