Muktsar, September 24
Raising questions over the functioning of their own party’s Muktsar Municipal Council president Krishan Kumar Shammi Tehria and vice-president Mintu Kang, five Congress councillors today staged a walkout from a general house meeting.
Congress councillor Gurinder Singh Bawa Koki, who is also a former council president, first raised questions over the functioning of the incumbent MC president and then another Congress councillor, Tejinder Singh Jimmy Brar, raised the same issue. They alleged Tehria was ignoring the councillors.
All allegations levelled against me are baseless. The overall development of Muktsar is being carried out without any discrimination. —KKS Tehria, Muktsar council chief
Thereafter, Brar and four other Congress councillors, including Yadwinder Singh Yadu, a MC former vice-president, staged a walkout. Some Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) councillors, too, accused the MC president of favouritism and left the meeting room.
However, the resolution to buy a vehicle for the MC chief was passed by the House. A few days ago, Yadu had publicly opposed the proposal to buy the vehicle. Thereafter, 13 Congress councillors had even written to the senior party leadership, seeking replacement of the MC president and vice-president.
Tehria however termed the allegations levelled against him as baseless. He said overall development was being carried out in the town.
