Scuffle disrupts council meeting

Staff Reporter

RAJAPALAYAM: A scuffle between the Congress and Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam councillors disrupted the Rajapalayam Municipal Council meeting here on Monday.

Even as the councillors were entering the council hall for the evening meeting, Thangaraj, councillor of ward 3, questioned the Vice-Chairman, A.A. Subbaraja, on why his ward was being ignored for carrying out development work, the police said.

He was joined by other councillors, Pemalai (DMK), Yogasekaran (MDMK), and two AIADMK councillors. Meanwhile, the quarrel resulted in a scuffle and Mr. Subbaraja and the Chairperson, Mahalakshmi, left the hall.

Councillors belonging to AIADMK, DMK, MDMK and an independent raised slogans against Mr. Subbaraja.

Works cancelled

Later, Mr. Subbaraja told reporters that even DMK members were disrupting the proceedings and hence the meeting was cancelled. Yogasekaran alleged that works sanctioned for his ward were cancelled by Mr. Subbaraja.
