"The BMC is always subjected to criticism. If Mumbai receives too much rainfall, is the BMC's responsible for it? The city will remain in a good condition throughout the monsoon season," Thackeray said while inaugurating the Kalidas drama theatre in suburban Mulund.

The Sena leader said he is satisfied with the BMC's pre-monsoon works and confident that the rainy season will pass off without any major water logging or untoward incident.


Water logging, potholed roads and disruption of the suburban train network are common features in the financial capital in the monsoon almost every year.
