The NMMC General Body meeting has corporators who often take the meeting for granted and are always on the list of latecomers. In this month’s general body meeting the latecomer was Shiv Sena corporator Saroj Patil. She walked in the general body post lunch and took up the issue of her party colleagues M K Madhvi and Vinaya Madhvi sitting on the floor.
The Mayor however was in no mood to relent to any debate on the same and reprimanded Saroj Patil for being late to the meeting and taking up an issue that was already discussed by the house.
He informed her that all senior corporators of all parties were present in the morning and everyone is aware.
She questioned if they can sit on benches when the protesting corporators were on the floor.
The Mayor told her again that she has come in late and sternly asked her to not take up the issue.
Corporators walking in late for general body meeting is a known practice. Coming late often, shows they are not serious about the duties their voters have entrusted them with. It is unfortunate that these corporators fail to understand that the general body meeting are held after spending public money so they should attend it with sincerity and on time.
