Of a marriage and debates in corporation council

By Our Staff Correspondent

MANGALORE, OCT. 30. Corporators at the city corporation council meeting here today greeted the Mayor, Purandaradasa Kulur, who married an employee of city corporation at Brahmavar in Udupi district on Friday.

The 35-year-old Mr. Kuloor married B. Hamsavathi, an engineer (environment section) at the city corporation, at Nellikatta Ganapathi Temple, Brahmavar. They got their marriage registered at the office of the Sub-Registrar at Brahmavar.

Many corporators came to know about the low-profile marriage only this morning. Only a few persons were present at the marriage, which ended within two hours.

The Opposition members, ruling party corporators and D.V. Sadananda Gowda, MP, greeted the Mayor.

The MP was attending the meeting for the first time. After observing the quality of debate, the veteran BJP leader gave suggestions to the corporators to maintain the dignity of the House.

He said that the debate in the council should be a model one.

When MLAs from undivided Dakshina Kannada district spoke at the Legislative Assembly, other members listened to them attentively. In the Assembly, MLAs from the district commanded good respect owing to their good mannered debate. The corporators should retain that image. They should avoid speaking simultaneously.

At that point, a few corporators said that even MLAs obstructed business in the Assembly and MPs in Parliament. But soon after the MP left the House, arguments and debate continued. A ruling party corporator objected to the big size of the photo of the former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee in the House. She said it was bigger than the photos of other political leaders in the House. There should have been uniformity in the sizes of all photos, she added.

The Opposition BJP corporators strongly objected to the statement made by the woman corporator.

Soon the Mayor reminded the corporators about the need to maintain quality in debate and asked them to end speaking on the photograph issue.
