In a bizarre statement, BMC's standing committee chairman Yashwant Jadhav claimed that there are no potholes in Mumbai.
Yashwant Sinha, the Shiv Sena corporator, said he travels everyday on Mumbai roads and he has never seen a "single pothole" in the metropolitan.
"There is not a single pothole in Mumbai. You show me one single pothole. I travel every day on the Mumbai city roads. I don't see potholes. If there is any it could be due to metro construction, but I can assure you there is not a single pothole," Yashwant Jadhav said.
Yashwant Jadhav also said that if anyone is able to spot a pothole, it will be fixed within two hours.
Jadhav further refused to comment on anything.
Mumbai has been facing serious problems due to potholes. Till now seven people have lost their lives in incidents related to potholes and many more have been injured.
A few days back, a 47-year-old auto driver lost his life in Bandra East.
Last night also, a couple was injured at Eastern express highway in the Sion area. The front tyre of their bike hit a massive pothole on the road, forcing the two-wheeler to skid for over 10 feet. The BMC officials, however, shrugg-off their responsibility and said that the road came under the purview of MMRDA.
