New Delhi: In a shocking video from Mumbai, Shiv Sena MLA Dilip Lande made a contractor sit on a waterlogged street and asked people to dump garbage on him for allegedly not getting the drainage system clean. The MLA defended his actions by saying that the contractor “did not do his job properly,” which led to the street being waterlogged.
“I had been calling up the contractor for the last 15 days requesting him to clear the road. He never did that. Shiv Sena people were themselves working on it. When he came to know, he rushed there. I told him that it is his responsibility and he should do it,” MLA Dilip Lande told ANI.
The incident is said to have taken place on Saturday.

However, the alert has been downgraded to an orange alert with the weather body predicting heavy to very heavy rainfall.
