14 ward members resign citing official apathy

Saturday, 25 September 2021 | PNS | Nainital

In an unprecedented development, 14 ward members of Nainital municipality tendered their resignations to the Kumaon commissioner Sushil Kumar on Friday. They alleged that the municipality executive officer AK Verma is neglecting public interest works while complaints made to the CM helpline are also not being addressed. Despite being the Kumaon region headquarter and the high court also being situated here, the authorities are not taking cognisance of complaints made in public interest. The ward members said that they had written several times to the municipality administration and state administration but the issues they had raised were not being addressed and the problems were not being solved. They said that replacements had not been sent after the transfers of the tax superintendent, tax inspector and accountant from the municipality which is affecting various works and causing public inconvenience. Ward member Manoj Sah Jagati said that the ward members had signed and submitted their resignation letter to the Kumaon commissioner while some of the ward members who were out of town also plan to resign on their return to Nainital.
