BMC accepts resignation of Sena candidate


Share post:

Mumbai: The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Friday accepted the resignation of one of its employees, Rutuja Latke, the Shiv Sena’s prospective candidate for the Andheri East by-election.

The resignation was accepted after the Bombay High Court on Thursday asked the civic body to accept it before 11 am.

As per Rule 6 of the Mumbai Municipal Corporation Service (Conduct) Regulations, 1989, an employee of the BMC is prohibited from contesting elections.

Rutuja Latke is the widow of former Sena MLA from Andheri (East), Ramesh Latke, who died after a heart attack in May 2022 in Dubai. Ramesh Latke was a two-time MLA from Andheri (East) and a civic corporator of the area earlier.

Rutuja Latke was working as an assistant clerk in the office of the assistant municipal commissioner at BMC’s K/East ward office in Andheri (East) and was looking after administrative work.
