As the health crisis tightens its grip around Maharashtra, the MVA leaders are seen causing disruption and intimidating the frontline warriors.
In the latest incident as reported by Times Now, Nagpur Congress corporator Bunty Shelke along with Maharashtra INC Chief Nana Patole stormed into Nagpur’s Municipality Corporation’s office threatening and misbehaving with the employees. Citing inefficiency of the employees as the reason for his violent behavior, Shelke went ahead to make a dastardly statement.
In the presence of the Pradesh Congress Committee chief Nana Patole, Shelke claimed that the workers ‘deserve to be burned down’ for their incompetence.

Whether or not any action will be taken against the Congress corporator for his misbehavior and alleged attempt to disrupt work at such critical times is to be seen.
Last week a Shiv Sena corporator from Mumbai’s suburbs was seen creating a ruckus at a Covid-19 hospital. Sandhya Doshi who was accompanied by a person with no mask was seen humiliating the hospital staff and accusing a doctor on duty for allegedly not “talking properly” to a patient she knew.
