QMumbai: BJP-Shiv Sena Power Sharing Pact Final & More

1. Power-Sharing Pact Is Final, Say Devendra Fadnavis And Uddhav Thackeray

Amid the uncertainty over sharing of the chief minister’s (CM) post for 2.5 years, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray assured party workers that there would be “equal sharing of responsibilities” with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) if the alliance is voted back to power in 2019, meaning the two parties would have their CM for equal number of years.

Since the announcement of the alliance between BJP and Sena last week, a section of Sena workers feel that the party has got a raw deal, with no clarity on splitting the post of CM. In a bid to assuage the fears of party functionaries, Thackeray met district-level functionaries.

In a bid to streamline the private companies and NGOs working in waste collection and processing, the BMC now plans to empanel these organisations. The civic body has set up a committee to formulate rules for this.

The move comes after the civic body received complaints from bulk generators that the private companies charged exorbitant amounts to collect and process waste. Starting January 2018, the BMC stopped collecting wet waste from housing societies and establishments that generate more than 100 kg waste daily or have an area of more than 20,000 sqm to reduce the amount of garbage transported to three dumping grounds in the city.’
