Senior Shiv Sena leader and environment minister Ramdas Kadam has alleged that the recent incidents of fire at the Deonar dumping ground were the “handiwork” of the BJP workers.

Kadam, along with other Shiv Sena MPs and ministers, and city mayor Snehal Ambekar, visited the dumping ground on Monday to analyse the situation.

Speaking to media, Kadam alleged, “The BJP is trying to take political mileage out of this fire issue, which is the handiwork of its own people. The party is doing this in the run up to the BMC election.”

The city civic polls will be held in February next year.
