THE CORPORATORS who had stopped visiting the LMC office after the appointment of administrator are back once again. This time they are coming to get their personal work done. On Friday, just a day after the notification, many corporators were seen inside the LMC office with the demand for development work in their respective wards.

Leader of Opposition in last LMC House and present district president of the Samajwadi Party Mujeeb-ur-Rehman ‘Babloo’ was seen in the LMC office on Thursday and Friday trying to push his files for payment of his vehicles hired by the LMC’s rubbish removal and engineering department.

Similarly, another Samajwadi Party leader and nominated corporator Musa Sulemani was seen with the letter of a high profile minister for getting a road constructed in front of his house.

On his visit after a long absence, district president of the Samajwadi Party Mujeeb-ur-Rehman ‘Babloo’ said, “Why can’t I come to LMC office for personal work? After all I am also a resident of this city. I can also have some problems and as a politician it’s my right to fight for the development of the city.”

Regarding the preparation of the Samajwadi party for the elections he said, “The Samajwadi party is not afraid of elections. We have already conducted interviews and the selection of candidates is in the hands of senior leaders.”

Another SP corporator said, “We have worked for the public for five years without ever thinking about getting our personal work done. The road in front of my house is also in a dilapidated condition I am here with the estimate file to get the road repaired. I know if I lose this year it would be hard to get my work done.”

A high profile BJP Corporator from old city was seen fighting with a LMC official for the installation of a hand pump in his locality.

The official was trying to convince him that installation of hand pump was the job of Jal Nigam as the LMC had transferred the funds to them. “The water supply in my area is very poor, I had proposed the hand pump from the MLA fund of Vidya Sagar Gupta six months back. Now the next elections are round the corner and the LMC has not done anything to ensure the installation of hand pump in my locality,” he said.
