COMING IN support of the striking Sanyukt Karamchari Sangh of the Kanpur Municipal Corporation, several Samajwadi Party corporators today petitioned divisional commissioner Anita Bhatnagar Jain to take action against chief account officer PN Singh in the misappropriation of fund case. The corporators also demanded her intervention to end the ongoing strike as it was affecting KMC functioning.

The corporators, who included Ashumendra Pratap Singh ‘Sanjay’, Durgesh Yadav, Shakuntala Gupta, Yusuf Mansoori, Ehsan Khan, Umakant Yadav, Sohail Khan, Manju Valmiki, Pradeep Bajpai, Marsaleen Khan ‘Bholu’, Seema Yadav, Faiyaaz Ahmed, Raj Singh Yadav, Jaiwant Singh, Sartaj Anwar, Sahibe Alam and others alleged that the insensitive attitude of the officials had resulted in the deadlock.

They said when the State Finance Commission had sanctioned salary grant till March why the employees were not paid on time. They blamed the officials for the stalemate.

Demanding action against PN Singh for his alleged involvement in the misappropriation of Rs 7.5 crore, they said that the CAO was not punished then the corporators would themselves take him to task. The strike, they said, was adversely affecting the image of the State Government and the party.

Meanwhile, some employees today launched a search to trace the CAO. Several employees went to his residence, but were told that was not at home. On a tip-off, they went to a Mall Road hotel.

However, the hotel staff told them that the CAO had already left the place. They then went to a room near the GSVM Medical College. However, they returned empty-handed from there too.
