At present, the schools under primary education and centres under the primary health are reeling under several issues. Mayor Arun Sood said: “The MC can just renovate them. There are so many other problems that we cannot address, like dispensaries are without any proper staff. So, we have decided to take a call on this. The UT administration may either take it completely from us or give it completely to us.”

The house would also take up the issue of setting up a plastic-to-fuel plant. The agenda has already been approved by the Finance and Contract Committee and now expression of interest would be called only after the approval of the house.

The Congress alleged foul play on the part of the mayor, stating that only three issues were being taken up in the main agenda many agendas would come up as table agendas.

“They don’t want any issue in the media. So, they have put routine issues in the main agenda,” said Congress councillor Subhash Chawla.

Sood said: “They should understand that this is the second last house meeting and accordingly the agendas are placed. Table agendas, when placed
in the house, are also in the open.”
