LACUNAE IN the Municipal Corporation Act have been creating strange problems for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) corporators’ group in a case of zonal chairman’s resignation.
Senior BJP corporator Alok Sanjar had submitted his resignation from the post of zonal chairman in August last year after he was made office-bearer in the district BJP. Sanjar submitted the resignation to the BMC administration again a couple of months back.
However, the status of the resignation is yet to be known. The Municipal Corporation Act is silent on this issue. After the dilemma, the BMC administration forwarded this resignation to the State Government asking for guidance on this issue. But, the State Government has not responded even after one and half months.
Sanjar was zonal chairman of zone-14, which included three wards 51, 52 and 53 of new Bhopal area. Sanjar represented ward 51. All three corporators belong to the BJP. After this resignation, other corporators especially corporator of ward 53- Kewal Mishra- have started demanding the post of zonal chairman.
Leaders of the BJP corporators group find themselves as helpless. BMC chairman Ramdayal Prajapati said the lacunae in the Municipal Corporation Act had created this problem. He said it was surprising that a corporator was being forced to work as zonal chairman even after he resigned from the post.
