After the slap incident,Mayor restricts entry to MC offices

The mayor also ordered that an entry register should be maintained at the gates and every person entering the office should specify reason for coming and other details like name,address and contact number.

A day after MC tehbazaari superintendent Rajiv Bhardwaj was slapped in the face by sweeper Vicky for telling him to ask for permission for putting up hoardings in the city,Mayor Harcharan Singh Gohalwaria on Wednesday restricted entry to all four offices of MC (Zone A,B,C,D).

The mayor also ordered that an entry register should be maintained at the gates and every person entering the office should specify reason for coming and other details like name,address and contact number.

Talking to Newsline,the mayor said,“I have issued orders on Wednesday regarding the same as I came to know that the slap incident was not the first one. Earlier too,MC officials have been misbehaved with by the outsiders. Now their dignity is of prime importance. Anybody coming for some work is welcome in MC offices but those who just come for whiling away the time or show hooliganism are not. Now entry will be purely restricted and entry registers will be maintained.”
