The South corporation is soon likely to move a no-confidence motion against commissioner Manish Gupta over the issue of development of unauthorised colonies. Civic body officials have alleged that no work has been carried out at all in such colonies.
Gupta drew flak on Tuesday after a standing committee meeting after which he stated that no work could be carried out by the civic body at the unauthorised colonies without an order from the Delhi government.
"We have given the commissioner a few days to take necessary action. If not, we will initiate a no-confidence motion against him in the House meeting on June 10," standing committee chairman Rajesh Gehlot said.
Leader of the House Subhash Arya said the civic body has allocated Rs 50 crore for the development of unauthorised colonies under its non-plan budget head.
"The mayors, standing committee chairpersons and leaders of the House had met the chief minister, who had asked us to start development work on the 312 colonies and also to use the corporator's funds here in tune of the MLA funds. The officials, however, have indulged in a blame game and the commissioner, even after a resolution passed by us on May 14 to start work in these colonies, has failed to write a letter seeking the Delhi government's formal approval," Arya said.
