Mumbai mayor compares Modi with Hitler 

Mumbai, July 20 (IANS) Mumbai Mayor and Shiv Sena leader Snehal Ambekar has compared Prime Minister Narendra Modi with Hitler.

In an interview with the Afternoon Despatch & Courier, the 43-year-old said: “I admire Narendra Modi for his self-reliant way of working. But at some level, I feel his rule is quite like Hitler…

“This is bound to happen when power is concentrated in the hands of one man,” said Ambekar, a first-time municipal corporator.

Elected the city’s seventh woman and first Dalit woman mayor in September 2014, Ambekar has been seeking a red beacon for her vehicle.

The former Life Insurance Corp (LIC) officer claimed that her position in the city was akin to that of the chief minister.

“If a chief minister has red beacon, a mayor’s status is pretty similar in terms of a city,” she said.

Ambekar’s comments were the latest in a series of the barbs the Shiv Sena has fired at the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party. Both parties are allies in the centre and in Maharashtra.
