With the BJP returning to power,the Municipal Corporation of Delhi on Thursday sent a proposal to the Directorate of Municipal Services (DMS) to convene the first meeting of the trifurcated House.
DMS director R K Srivastava told Newsline that the proposal had been forwarded to Lieutenant Governor Tejendra Khanna for finalising the date and time of the first meeting.
While sources in the MCD said the corporation had decided that the meeting will be held on April 27,28 and 29,senior officials said the winning party was still discussing the matter.
There are still some deliberations on the final date and reconsideration is likely. The winning party apparently wants the first meeting held on April 30, a Delhi government official said.
Meanwhile,names of officials tipped to be appointed commissioners for the three new municipal bodies have started doing the rounds. These include IAS officers Manish Kumar Gupta,Debashri Mukherjee and Sajjan Singh Yadav.
