Chandigarh, March 2

Municipal Commissioner Anindita Mitra today suspended an Executive Engineer (XEN) of the Electrical Department after the sound system conked off repeatedly during the inauguration of the TT water project here today.

XEN Kuldeep Singh was responsible for fixing the sound system for the event, but the MC had to cut a sorry figure before Punjab Governor and UT Administrator Banwarilal Purohit when it conked off repeatedly.

During national anthem, it stopped in between. Even during the Purohit’s speech, the mikes and speakers were not functioning properly.

“Neither was he present during the event nor did he check the wiring even after being asked by the SE of the Electrical Department. He has been suspended till further orders and will be chargesheeted,” said the MC chief.
