Chaotic scenes lead to adjournment

Staff Reporter

MADURAI: The Corporation Council meeting witnessed chaotic scenes, forcing the Mayor, C. Ramachandran, to adjourn it for a brief while on Wednesday.

When the All-India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam member, S. D. Jeyabalan, referred to the fuel price hike, Congress members objected to it. Mr. Jeyabalan made a reference to the DMK president, M. Karunanidhi, thus making the DMK members to join issue.

When Congress members squatted before the Mayor, he adjourned the meeting. The Congress and AIADMK members raised slogans. Later, during the proceedings, the Deputy Mayor, S.S. Ghouse Batcha, wanted the Chief Education Officer to give details of vacancy positions in Corporation schools. The Communist Party of India (Marxist) member, M. Chellam, called for steps to fill vacancies in schools and complained that many schools did not have adequate furniture.

To a question raised by the Dravida Munnetra Kazahgam member, V. K. Gurusamy, the Assistant Commissioner (Revenue), Sundaram, said notices were issued to 21 eateries run without permission in the Mattuthavani integrated bus stand.
