The first executive committee meeting after the elections of the office bearers of Federation of Sectors Welfare Association (FOSWAC),Chandigarh,was held today. Chairperson P C Sanghi mooted the proposal to form four separate sub-committees to pursue the issues related to the administration,Municipal Corporation,Chandigarh Housing Board and police authorities,and requested the members to volunteer their services for it. He also informed the members that a website of FOSWAC will be launched and necessary information will be disseminated to the members through e-mail.

The issue regarding implementation of garbage collection project all over the city on the pattern of a pilot project taken up in Sector 22 was discussed and on account of the lack of consensus,the matter was deferred to the next meeting.
