Former staff members of the workshop of municipal corporation Jalandhar (MCJ) that was recently disbanded by municipal commissioner GS Khehra after the machinery purchase scam came to limelight, is continuing its non-cooperative attitude towards the MC officials. The said civic body officials have been given an additional charge for the workshop.

Sources in the MC informed, “While one official is not attending calls, others are giving excuse of being occupied with other projects.” The team was formed with the motive of bringing transparency in the working of the workshop after the alleged machinery scam grabbed headlines a fortnight back.

Two weeks back, Khehra had constituted a team that did not include even a single official who were earlier handling the charge of MC workshop.

The team included superintendent teh bazaari department Harjot Singh, inspector Madhu, clerk Madan, junior engineer (mechanical) Anikesh, sanitary inspector Mahesh Vij and assistant medical officer (AMO) Dr Kishan Sharma.
