Belgaum: N.B. Nirvani who had resigned as Mayor of Belgaum about a fortnight ago, is illegally using the office and other facilities, including the official car, said Deputy Mayor Dhanraj Gavali.
Mr. Nirvani had resigned on March 9 in protest against the alleged humiliation caused to him by the officials concerned and the State Government as he was not taken into confidence while preparations were being made for the Vishwa Kannada Sammelan held between March 11 and 13. He alleged that he was not extended the invitation for the inaugural function also let alone inviting him to other programmes organised as part of the sammelan. He said that he had resigned as the treatment meted out to him was a blow to his self-respect.
But, he changed his mind in less than 24 hours and yielded to counselling by Kannada and Culture minister Govind Karjole, district incharge Minister Umesh V. Katti and senior leaders of the district. He announced that he would withdraw his resignation which had sent confusing signals. However, Deputy Mayor Dhanraj Gavali, an advocate by profession and the former Secretary of Belgaum Bar Association, maintained that Mr. Nirvani had submitted his resignation under Section 10, Clause 5 & 7 of the Karnataka Municipality Act, 1976.
