The newly-elected Deputy Mayor of Nagpur, Manisha Dhawade, on Thursday, said that she was blessed to be married in a family, which supported her in joining politics and they were her strength. Dhawade was sworn in as the Deputy Mayor of Nagpur today.
Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) Corporator, Dhawade, was elected as Deputy to Mayor Dayashankar Tiwari on January 5 through online polls at the Nagpur Municipal Corporations office (NMC).
Securing 107 votes from 149, Dhawade is sixth from her family, who is serving as a corporator at NMC. Elected in 2017 as a corporator, Dhawade, was mentored by her in-laws for politics.
Just few hours after her swearing ceremony, she spoke to Nation Next and said, I never thought of getting in politics but I got married into a family, where public service was a way of life. Five of my in-laws had served as corporators before me. I was inspired and motivated by them. I’m blessed and lucky that my in-laws showed me a world beyond cooking-cleaning; it is due to their efforts that I have become the Deputy Mayor today.
Speaking about her plans for Nagpur, she said, Women safety and cleanliness at public places is my top priority. I’m honoured to have a mentor like Daya bhaiya (Dayashankar Tiwari) as the Mayor, with whom, I will work hard to serve Nagpurians and address their needs.
In my first term itself as a Corporator, I got the chance to serve as the deputy Mayor. I understand the responsibilities of the job. We have a lot to do. I’m positive that we will clear the backlog from last year, which was due because of COVID-19, said Dhawade when asked about the workload being more in her tenure.
She ended by saying, Daya bhaiya is a leader, who is respected by the people for his work ethics and the relations, which he maintains with others. I assure people of Nagpur that we will do our best to be true on their expectations.

Nagpur citizens to revel The Raaas Garba next year!
Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”
He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
