Mumbai, Feb 5 (TOI/PTI): BJP leader and former chief minister Devendra Fadnavis’ wife Amruta Fadnavis on Friday claimed that 3 per cent of divorces in Mumbai are happening due to traffic jams.
“I am saying this as a common citizen. Once I go out, I see several issues including potholes, traffic. Due to traffic, people are unable to give time to their families and 3 per cent of divorces in Mumbai are happening due to it, so I advise the state government to pay more attention to its mistakes,” Fadnavis said.
Addressing media persons in Mumbai after an event, she alleged that the Maharashtra Vikas Agadi government was functioning as a monopoly and that they were just a “vasooli” government.
Meanwhile, Mumbai mayor Kishori Pednekar criticized Amruta Fadnavis’ claim.
“Amrita Fadnavis is the wife of our former chief minister. Her allegation is astonishing that traffic leads to divorce. There can be many reasons for divorce but this for the first time I have heard this,” said Pednekar.
Her remarks come ahead of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) election scheduled to be held later this year.
