MUMBAI: In a development that may further strain the relations between the BJP and the Shiv Sena, Mumbai Mayor Snehal Ambekar has compared Prime Minister Narendra Modi�s style of functioning with that of German dictator Adolf Hitler. �I even admire Narendra Modi for his self-reliant way of working. But at some level, I feel his rule is quite like Hitler-shaahi... This is bound to happen when power is concentrated in the hands of one man,� she told a Mumbai-based tabloid in an interview. The first-time corporator from the Shiv Sena and seventh woman Mayor of Mumbai also said: �The Mayor has constant emergencies, as well as we go to receive VVIPs as representatives of the masses. If a chief minister has red beacon, a mayor�s status is pretty similar in terms of a city. I believe there is nothing wrong for a Mayor in using a red beacon fitted car.� As of now, there has been no comments either from the BJP or the Shiv Sena on this issue � but it comes as an embarrassment to both the parties. Recently, a five-time BJP MLA Raj Purohit too has criticised Modi�s style of function in a sting operation, but later he had denied that the voice in the video was not his. �There is no collective decision-making in the BJP�It�s a fraud� (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi and (BJP President) Amit Shah are the two power centres in the country� Such a democracy is meaningless... they are calling the shots,� Purohit was caught saying in the video which was aired by local TV channels.
