Only HJP members attend first Ambala civic body meeting

Ambala, February 18

Only the councillors of the Haryana Jan Chetna Party (HJP) attended the first meeting of the newly elected House of the Ambala Municipal Corporation, called by Mayor Shaktirani Sharma, here on Thursday.

While the councillors of the BJP, Congress and Haryana Democratic Front along with the MC officials, including the Commissioner, didn't attend the meeting. There are 20 councillors, of which only eight were present in the meeting.

Now, the MC has issued a letter regarding another House meeting to be held on February 23, but the BJP councillors have submitted a memorandum to the city magistrate for the DC seeking action against the Mayor.

As per information, the Mayor, who belongs to the HJP, had called the meeting using her powers. "Everything is being done as per the act. We have the majority. We discussed all major issues on Thursday, but the budget couldn't be tabled. The officials and councillors have been ignoring the House, which is not good. They were informed about the meeting in time," the Mayor said.

The councillors, who were present in the meeting, said action should be taken against those who were absent. They accused the officials of working on the directions of BJP MLA Aseem Goel. Later, they also raised slogans against the BJP and the MC officials.

On the other hand, in their memorandum, the BJP councillors alleged that the meeting was unconstitutional.

Meanwhile, the MC secretary said the letter issued by the Mayor was received on February 15 while as per the norms, it should have been issued at least five days before the meeting. Some councillors had also complained that they had not received any information about the meeting. A letter regarding the MC meeting to be held on February 23 has been issued. — TNS
