There is a BJP-Republican alliance in Pune Municipal Corporation. The post of deputy mayor has been allotted to the Republicans. Last time Dr. Siddharth Dhende was given the post of Deputy Mayor. The post of group leader was given to Sunita Wadekar and the post of standing committee member was given to Himali Kamble. So now Farzana Sheikh is the only minority corporator of Ripai. Therefore, some office bearers of Ripai have demanded that he should get the post of Deputy Mayor this time.
Bharat Ratna Dr. The Republican Party, founded on an open letter from Babasaheb Ambedkar, is said to give equal justice to people of all castes and religions. By giving the post of deputy mayor to the minority community, the BJP can get an opportunity to make this social convergence. Therefore, it is hoped that the minority community will get justice ahead of the forthcoming municipal elections.
