Pimpri-Chinchwad Mayor Usha Dhore has drawn flak after she attended a cultural occasion the place social distancing norms have been allegedly not adopted. NCP MP Amol Kolhe has urged the PCMC administration to take motion towards the mayor.
On Monday, the mayor attended the Miss Pimpri-Chinchwad and Mrs Pimpri-Chinchwad occasion at Prof Ramkrishna More auditorium. NCP has alleged that the mayor walked the ramp with out sporting a masks. Social distancing norms have been allegedly not adopted by the group and the celebrities current for the occasion. The NCP claimed whereas solely 200 persons are allowed at a gathering, extra individuals have been current on the occasion.
The occasion was organised to have fun the birthday of BJP MLA Laxman Jagtap.
“After the appeal by Maharashtra CM and Deputy CM, several political leaders have postponed their planned events. Two days back, Deputy CM Ajit Pawar held a meeting of top officials where curbs were announced. But the Pimpri-Chinchwad mayor has ignored these curbs and participated in a fashion show where social distancing norms were thrown to the wind. This is unfortunate,” Kolhe tweeted.
“In view of this, the PCMC administration should take action against the mayor just like it does against common people when they violate the norms,” he mentioned.

Former mayor Mangala Kadam, who’s a NCP corporator, mentioned, “The mayor should own responsibility and resign on moral grounds. Instead of leading by example, she has blatantly flouted Covid-19 norms. If a person holding high office behaves the way first citizen has behaved, how can you expect ordinary citizens to strictly follow the rules ?”
When contacted, Dhore mentioned, “I will speak later as there has been a death in my family.”
