Talwara, November 30

Unhappy with the working style of Monica Sharma, president, nagar panchayat, Talwara, eight Municipal Councillors (MCs) of the same party challenged her to prove her majority in the House. The Congress councillors have written a letter to Navneet Kaur Bal, SDM, Mukerian, demanding that a meeting of the nagar panchayat should be convened to prove the majority. In the absence of the SDM, the letter was handed over to her reader Lakshmi Devi.

There are a total of 13 councillors in the nagar panchayat. Of these, one is from the BJP, one is independent and remaining 11 are of the Congress party. The councillors had held two-three rounds of meetings with the MLA of Dasuya to remove the president from the post, but no result could be achieved.

The eight MCs were Vikas Chander Goga, Suman Dua, Shaili Anand, Munish Chadda, Deepak Arora, Taranjit Babi, Parminder Kaur and Surinder Kaur. In the letter to the SDM, they alleged that the president had been ignoring the members for development works. They alleged that the meetings of the House are not held for several months nor are they informed about the development works in the House. Therefore, they do not have faith in the president of the nagar panchayat.
