"Nagpur was among the top ten cities in the nation in every manner under Congress rule. Unfortunately, the city has now slipped to the 256th place in 'Swachh Bharat' rankings," Congress leader in the NMC, Vikas Thakre told a news agency here yesterday.
Blaming the BJP-led ruling alliance at NMC "for degrading the city's position", Thakre said, "It (BJP) has failed to control the administration and irregularities in its nine-year rule".
Thakre, who was also the president of Nagpur City and District Congress Committee demanded that city mayor Pravin Datke and Municipal Commissioner Shravan Hardikar should reveal the reasons to the tax payers, on why  Nagpur failed to make it to the first list of the cities announced under the 'Smart City' project.
