Shiv Sena corporator and BMC standing committee chairman Yashwant Jadhav has come under the scanner after an audio clip, where he is allegedly threatening a contractor, went viral on social media.

Yashwant Jadhav was asking a contractor named Surajpratap Singh Deora to withdraw the contract bid he submitted for the improvement work in the E ward (Byculla). In the clip Jadhav is heard saying, “You know the system or not? You withdraw the work and I will tell them to not issue you a challan.”

In a response to Jadhav’s statement, Deora said: "It will be difficult for me to withdraw the bid as it will have an impact on my company. We will not bid for any work in the future.”

To this, Jadhav again replied, “You do not understand that you need to withdraw the bid. When will you or your representative come to the ward office? I’ll meet you there. Or where do you stay? I will come there and explain it to you.”

Though Jadhav has denied all the allegations levelled against him, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has demanded his resignation from his post. The BJP group leader in BMC and corporator Prabhakar Shinde has called this act as shameful and asked Jadhav to take responsibility for it by resigning.

For those unaware, every contractor is issued a challan as an acknowledgement of appointment, after getting shortlisted in the tendering process. The bid in the audio clip refers to civic works such as toilet, footpath and pathway repairs along with drainage work etc.
