Mayor Subhash Chawla seems to have taken a fancy to Facebook for airing his views. From venting his ire on the BJP for its actions in the House to his dilemma over house tax, the mayor is sharing all his predicaments on the social networking site.
The most recent posts are about the conduct of BJP councillors in the MC House. During the recent meeting, the BJP-SAD councillors had held a protest by tying black bands around their mouths and holding posters in their hands with slogans against imposition of taxes. In fact, the meetings in the past few months have witnessed many arguments.
Commenting on the state of affairs, the Mayor has said that "BJP kaafi pareshaan kar rahee hai. Kuchh log yeh teh kar chukeyn hein kee kaam nahi karney dena. (BJP is creating trouble. Some people have decided that they will not let work happen)."
He goes on to say, "Mudon kee tlaash mein bhatak rahi hai CHD, BJP (BJP is looking for issues)." Another comment states that, "Hungama karna hi rajneeti nahi hai (To create a ruckus is not politics)."
Chawla says that issues that occupy his mind are the ones that he shares on Facebook. "There are certain things that I feel need to be taken care of. The BJP councillors are repeatedly giving the message that they would not let me function. The feedback that I am receiving from people on Facebook has been quite positive," he says.
The BJP councillors are not amused with the rantings of the Mayor against them. Arun Sood, who is the leader of the BJP in the MC House, says, "The action of the Mayor is kiddish. He is in such a position that he should speak responsibly and sensibly instead of commenting unnecessarily. He is predicting that the BJP would not let him function. He is acting like a dictator and stalled our agendas in the last meeting of the House."
