Radio Jockey Malishka Mendonsa released a collection of songs mocking Mumbai’s pot-filled roads and comparing them to craters on the Moon. This comes after BMC’s standing committee claimed that there were no potholes in Mumbai.
This is not the first time RJ Malishka criticised Mumbai’s civic body. In 2017, she made a satirical song “Mumbai, Tuza BMC Bharosa Nai Ka?” criticising the lack of maintenance of the city roads during the Monsoon season. The BMC called it a “cheap publicity stunt”, and filed a Rs 500-crore defamation suit. Later, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) issued a notice to Malishka under section 381 B of Mumbai Municipal Corporation after finding Aedes mosquito breeding site at her house. The notice read that the mosquitoes which were found at RJ Malishka’s residence at Sun rise apartments in Pali Naka were identified as Aedes mosquitoes and were breeding in a clay bowl kept under a pot. The notice also said that the breeding of mosquitoes was also taking place inside of the house in plant pots.
She again took a potshot at BMC in 2018 making a parody of ‘Zingaat’.
