The last general body meeting saw a pandemonium in the house over many issues but one that left an impact until the entire meeting ended was suspension of Shiv Sena Corporator Vinaya Madhvi. She reportedly used inappropriate words when her issues were not taken for approval and this led to the Mayor suspending her. This led to hours of protest as opposition sat down on the floors and did not participate in the proceedings of the house even as the ruling NCP continued approving proposals unperturbed. NCP supported Independent corporator Sudhakar Sonawane however tried to play from the opposition’s side when he stopped the proceedings and took objection to the Mayor’s indifferent attitude towards the opposition’s protest. This however led to the Mayor J D Sutar losing his cool on Sudhakar Sonawane.
As Sudhakar Sonawane refused to stop his debate over the issue, Mayor J D Sutar called for lunch break. As corporators started leaving the General Body hall, one could see Sudhakar Sonawane venting out his anger over the same with his party colleagues.
Mayor J D Sutar seems to be following the rule book of his Master strictly and successfully implements what he has been asked to keep his leader happy and content. His conduct in General Body has also sent warning bells to his fellow party men to be loyal & maintain discipline in the house. With bureau inputs, Zeba Warsia for NMTV News.
