In an terrible example of being inhuman, Chandivali Shiv Sena MLA Dilip Lande was seen on camera, forcing a corporator to sit on a waterlogged street and asking his supporters to dump garbage on him. The incident occurred on Saturday in Mumbai.
The financial capital was flooded after torrential rains hit the city last week, particularly in Sanjay Nagar and Sunder Baug in Kurla. In the video, the MLA can be heard saying,
Sit down in the water. Put the garbage on him. Why did your boss not come? Sit there (in dirty water and garbage) and call your boss. I have been calling your boss for the past one hour and he did not turn up. There has been waterlogging here for the past eight days. Do the cleaning work now. Sit here until your boss comes.
When asked as to why he resorted to such action, Lande said in the video,
I had been receiving numerous complaints from the local people. Those responsible for cleaning the garbage did not do their work for which people of my area had to walk through waterlogged streets. Now, I am making the contractor responsible sit in the same water.
- It is extremely sad that even in 2021, Men get treated like slaves, despite the dirty work they do
- Inefficient workers can be reprimanded in a way that is permitted by law, however, by asking your supporters to dump garbage on them has surely set the bar very low
