Local MP Pawan Kumar Bansal is likely to attend the meeting of the general house of the Municipal Corporation scheduled for October 31. This would be the first time after the rail bribery scam came to light that Bansal,who is an ex-officio member of the House would be attending the meeting.

Ruckus is likely in the House if Bansal makes an appearance. The BJP has made preparations for asking questions to Bansal about the scam. Bansal’s nephew had been arrested while accepting Rs 90 lakh from a member of the Railway Board.

Councillor Arun Sood said that if Bansal appears they would want a reply from him on the issue of rail bribery scam. He said that they would also ask the local MP about the development that he has undertaken in the city over the last 15 years when he has been in power.

Another issue that is likely to be discussed during the Municipal Corporation House meeting is the formation of a policy on catching stray cattle and sending stary cattle head out of the city. The agenda had been tabled by the BJP during the last meeting. It was,however,never discussed. A discussion on the issue is likely.

The BJP would also be discussing various controversies that have hit the MC over the past few months. With no conclusions having been reached on any issue,these would be discussed.
