Congress to protest virtual House meeting on October 20

Chandigarh, October 14

Congress councillors Devinder Singh Babla, Gurbax Rawat, Sheela Phool Singh, Satish Kainth and Ravinder Kaur Gujral will stage a protest outside Mayor Raj Bala Malik's office on October 20 when a meeting of General House will be held via a digital platform.

The councillors are protesting that no MC meeting has been held for the past month with the excuse of Covid.

"The meeting could have been held by the Senior Deputy Mayor or the Deputy Mayor. You seem to not trust even your own party men and your own party councillors have criticised you for the same," Babla said.

Babla accused the Mayor of fudging Swachh Bharat Mission survey by mentioning that the city has achieved complete door-to-door collection and segregation of garbage. "Dadu Majra is in a shambles and never before has there been such a huge accumulation of garbage. You have wrongly reported that 479 metric ton of garbage is collected, of which 450 tonne is processed," he added.

The Congress also opposes the decision to hike the rent of shopkeepers from Rs 14,000 to Rs 23,000 without the approval of MC House. Water tariff has also been increased considerably.
