WITH THE shadow of curfew still hanging over several areas, the Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC) general council meeting scheduled for tomorrow is likely to be wound up after offering condolences to ward 20 corporator Atul Shukla. Shukla, son of former City Congress chief Kripashankar Shukla, recently committed suicide by shooting himself.
“The meeting will be held as per schedule at 4 pm. Whether or not any business is carried out will depend on the members,” IMC secretary J C Galar said.
Speaker Shankar Lalwani, however, admitted that the meeting might not go the full course. “We are thinking of adjourning the general council after offering condolences to Shukla.
If the House agrees then the meeting will be held within two-three days,” he added. A total of 21 items were listed on the agenda during Thursday’s meet. Chief among these were restarting of the stalled Nanda Nagar infrastructure development project, restoration of the old parking system from April 1, creation of new posts for overseeing environmental improvement and civic infrastructure works funded by the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
Draft of a policy for hoardings on private property, approval to the e-governance contract awarded to M/s Elbiz and sanctioning social security payments to nearly 12,000 pensioners were among the other issues to be taken up by the 69-member (68 after Shukla’s demise) general council.
