CORPORATORS IN MILEAGE RACE TO BEAT CODE OF CONDUCT Corporators in the MCGM are racing against time to inaugurate ongoing and proposed projects to get mileage out of them before the code of conduct for the Assembly polls is announced. This month, the civic body has inaugurated at least 10 projects and more are in the offing. According to sources, MCGM will have the Middle Vaitarna IV water project inaugurated by Minister Jaipal Reddy next week. Meanwhile, the Congress corporators in MCGM are saying that instead of focusing on swine flu-affected people and water scarcity, the Sena-BJP is running after credit. Bureau report – NMTV News.
