An inauguration function of sewerage works held in ward number 1 passed off peacefully on Sunday. The function was attended by Daljit Singh Grewal alias Bhola,an Independent councillor from ward number 8 who is on congenial terms with Randhir Singh Sibia,councillor of ward number 1.
The issue of having the right to preside over inauguration ceremonies had rocked the Municipal Corporation house meeting held on August 2. The councillors raised a hue and cry and pressed the mayor to pass a resolution against an FIR registered against Bhola and councillor Gurpreet Singh Gora who were sent to jail after a brawl with MLA Ranjit Singh Dhillon on June 24 this year over a road project inauguration in ward number 8.
Stone-pelting,clashes and verbal abuses marked the function in New Shakti Nagar on June 24. During the MC house meet,the councillors cutting across party lines unanimously supported Bhola and criticised the mayor for not supporting Bhola at the time of crisis.
