Bombay High Court issues notice to Advocate General in plea against reduction of wards before BMC elections

Incidentally, the High Court had dismissed a petition earlier this year, wherein the challenge was to the increase in wards by the erstwhile Uddhav Thackeray government with the AG justifying the same then.

The Bombay High Court issued notice to the Advocate General of State of Maharashtra, Ashutosh Kumbhakoni in a plea challenging an Act passed by the Eknath Shinde led government reducing the number of directly elected councillors within the Bombay Municipal Corporation (BMC) limits from 236 to 227 [Raju Sripad Pednekar v. State of Maharashtra & Ors.].
