In a major embarrassment for the Shiv Sena on the polling day, Thackeray bahu has slammed the way the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) works.

 Smita Thackeray, ex-wife of Jaidev Thackeray--Balasaheb's estranged son, said corruption continues to be the mainstay of BMC.

The BMC has been run by the Shiv Sena-BJP alliance for the last few years. However, this time the two parties are going it alone in the polls.

"Problems of pothole-ridden roads and corruption in BMC have remained unresolved," Smita Thackeray said, who stayed in

Matoshree until her divorce with Jaidev in 2004.

In scathing criticism of the BMC, Thackeray said, "Files do not move, and work is slow" adding that the system needs to be "transparent".

"I have faced problems in spite of being from the (Thackeray) family," she said.

The election to the richest municipal corporation in the country is expected to be close fight between Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena and Devendra Fadnavis-led BJP.

Besides Mumbai, elections to nine other municipal corporations are also underway.
