The deteriorating relations between the Bharatiya Janata Party and the nominated councillors was further highlighted with senior leader Harmohan Dhawan on Tuesday writing an open letter,asking them to play a non-partisan role.

Dhawan stated that the motive behind the nomination was so that distinguished professionals are selected in different fields so that they can advise and share their experience with the elected members for the overall development and welfare of the people of Chandigarh.

After the Municipal Corporation elections,out of the 26 seats,Congress got only 11 seats and the opposition got 15 seats,including 12 to the SAD-BJP alliance,two to the BSP and one seat to an independent. He said that with the Congress having gained less than one third of the seats,it had been proved that the popular verdict was against the Congress.

Dhawan further writes that for the last eight months,he had observed the proceedings of the House and was pained that from the time of the mayoral elections the attitude of the nominated councillors has been partisan and undemocratic. He said that the Congress brought in a resolution to annul the resolution for the construction of a day market at Mauli Jagran,even though the construction is already going on. Poor people who would have benefited were deprived of the same.
