The members said work will be suspended in all north corporation offices and institutions. However, the Delhi government has to take the final call before the resolution is implemented.

A similar resolution was passed last year by the unified Municipal corporation of Delhi (MCD) to appease the Poorvanchali population but it was rejected by the government.
