Mumbai: Seventeen out of 105 newly-elected corporators, roughly 16 per cent, face criminal cases, the Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR) today claimed.
The statement was issued based on ADR’s analysis of self-sworn affidavits of 105 elected Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) corporators, though affidavits of six other elected corporators have not yet been analysed due to incomplete or unclear affidavits uploaded at the time the ADR report was prepared, an ADR statement said.

Altogether, 111 corporators were elected on April 24.

ADR said that after analysis of affidavits filed by 105 elected corporators, 13 corporators (roughly 12 per cent) declared their involvement in serious criminal cases.

In its party wise analysis, ADR found that ten (20 per cent) out of 51 elected corporators from the NCP, five (15 per cent) out of 33 elected corporators from the Shiv Sena and two (33 per cent) out of six elected corporators from the BJP have declared their involvement in criminal cases in their affidavits.

“Out of the affidavits of 105 elected corporators analysed, 69 corporators (66 per cent) are crorepatis, while 14 elected corporators have declared assets worth more than Rs 10 crore,” according to the ADR statement.
