Patiala Mayor issue: Rebel councillors to meet Brahm Mohindra today

Brahm Mohindra

Patiala, November 17

The matter of Patiala city mayorship will be discussed at a meeting at Local Government Minister Brahm Mohindra’s Chandigarh residence on Thursday. The party high command will hear out councillors who “want a change in city leadership”.

The unrest as regards the mayor’s removal, wherein 42 councillors have submitted a letter demanding the same, may come to rest.

Mohindra said, “I conveyed councillors’ sentiments to the party high command and the CM yesterday. They said they would look into the matter. The councillors then expressed a wish to meet them. Therefore, they have been invited to a meeting in Chandigarh tomorrow. A decision may be taken at the meeting.”

Sources in the party said most “rebellious” councillors would attend the meeting. “If all don’t make it to the meeting, we have their signatures and we will pursue the matter accordingly,” they said. Mayor Sanjeev Kumar Sharma has not been invited. “I have been busy looking after development works in Patiala. I am unaware of any meeting in Chandigarh,” he said. — TNS
