It is been only a couple of days that famous radio jockey Malishka has taken a dig at the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) by making fun of the civic body in a video over the bad condition of city roads, in the mean time VJ Jose Covaco's yet another video on the matter has created a biggest ever buzz Saturday on social networking sites.
In the video Covaco has been seen roaming around different streets of Mumbai and mocking at the civic body of Mumbai due to several potholes through out the city. He has further described the potholes as hi-tech speed-breakers, chai for birds and sarcasm out of the matter. The video further shows him denying the presence of potholes even as he points directly at them in areas close to Lilavati Hospital and cricketer Sachin Tendulkar's house. The video, posted on twitter has alrady got around 14,000 'likes' and 11,000 retweets in 24 hours of its release.
Sharing the video VJ Jose Covaco took the matter to twitter and captioned it as "Shame on these Mumbai citizens constantly blaming our authorities for things like potholes."
"Yeh actually khadda nahi hai. Yahan pe chai rakha hua hai for the birds and anybody, jo bhi paas aata hai (This is not a pothole. There's tea here for birds or anybody else who walks close by)," Jose stated in the video.
"It smells nice over here. I am getting smells of vegetables, I'm getting smells of fruits, some really interesting smells over here," he says while roaming around a heap of garbage.
I checked on a few areas near Bandra myself. Shame on these Mumbai citizens constantly blaming our authorities for things like potholes. pic.twitter.com/RuidDTO4Lo— José Covaco (@HoeZaay) July 21, 2017
Previously Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) had filed a defamation suit against RJ Malishka after she dropped a 1.23-minute-long video footage, titled 'Mumbai tula BMC var bharosa nai ka' (Mumbai, don’t you have faith in BMC) in Marathi and uploaded on YouTube. In the footage, she too purportedly poked fun at the bad state of roads filled with potholes in the city as well as the delays in suburban train schedules.
