The court docket mentioned the BMC’s conduct was “malafide” and “deplorable”. Ms Ranaut, who returned to Mumbai at present from Manali after months, is in the midst of an enormous row with the Shiv Sena over her “Mumbai looks like PoK” feedback and alleges she is being focused by the Maharashtra authorities due to her combat with the Sena, which additionally controls the BMC.
Following are the 5 huge quotes from at present’s verdict in favour of Kangana Ranaut:
Impulsively the company seems to have in a single day woken up from its slumber, issued discover to the petitioner, that too when she is out of state, directing her to reply inside 24 hours, and never granting her any additional time, regardless of written request, and continuing to demolish the premises upon completion of 24 hours.
The style by which the BMC proceeded to start demolition work prima facie doesn’t look like bonafide and smacks of malafide.
We can not assist however point out right here that if the BMC would act with comparable swiftness qua the quite a few unauthorised constructions on this Metropolis, the Metropolis can be a totally completely different place to stay in.
The civic physique was attempting to waste the time of the court docket and within the meantime full the demolition.
We discover the conduct of the BMC extremely deplorable, extra so for the reason that BMC was properly conscious petition can be filed by the petitioner earlier than this court docket at any time, and an software looking for pressing orders will likely be moved.
