In the letter, B.PAC has urged the BJP corporators, who may soon take the oath of office, to take another oath publicly, “Na Khaoonga, Na Khane Dunga”, following the public assurance given to the citizens of India by the Prime Minister.
This will ensure that elected BJP corporators give a public commitment to assure corruption-free governance during their term in their office, and focus on delivering transparent and citizen-centric governance at their respective wards.
Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, President, B.PAC said, “This letter to the Prime Minister was with an intent to get commitment from our corporators for clean governance and efficient administration for the next five years in their office, to break the vicious cycle of corruption and apathy which characterised the last Council”.
“In light of recent media reports that Congress and JD(S) are having a dialogue to elect Mayor and Deputy Mayor jointly, we urge all Congress and JD(S) corporators also to take a similar oath to assure citizens of a corruption free Council. This is more so since reports of horse trading, sequestration of independent corporators and huge sums being exchanged are coming in the public domain,” said T V Mohandas Pai, Vice President, B.PAC.
