Vol. 13 | ISSUE 11 | FEBRUARY 2020

Chandrakant K DangeTHE Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC) has got its eighth civic chief, in a span of around eight years, this time in the form of Chandrakant K Dange a 2010-batch IAS officer of the Maharashtra cadre who took charge from outgoing commissioner Balaji Khatgaonkar. Dange holds an M.Tech degree from IIT Kharagpur. He has rich experience of serving in various government departments like tribal development and municipalities, including Jalgaon. He was currently serving as secretary in the state’s general administration department (GAD) and is known for his no-nonsense attitude and very firm approach in administrative circles. However, in the current scenario, it is to be seen if Dange manages to have an upper hand or succumbs to the intense political pressure that is being exerted by the two warring factions in the BJP-ruled municipality and an aggressive Shiv Sena which is seated in the opposition. This becomes all the more relevant as Dange’s appointment as MBMC commissioner is part of a major reshuffle announced by the Uddhav Thackeray-led Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA).gfiles end logo
