A WhatsApp message making rounds throughout the day claiming to be conducting a survey of the corporators and their work raised many a eyebrows in the city. There were unconfirmed reports of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) senior leaders getting this survey done, which sent ripples among the BJP corporators.
The message says that people have elected representatives from their respective wards to get their works done and their problems solved. However, there is nobody to evaluate the corporators’ performance. Hence, the messenger claims it has taken a lead without any political motto.
It further says that through the survey it is an honest attempt to know the problems of the people in each Prabhag and further the solution. It is totally apolitical survey carried out to study city’s issues, the message claims. It further says that genuine feedback from the citizens will certainly help in serving their aspirations urging the people to co-operate in the noble venture.
A link has been given at the end of the message. On pressing the link the page of eight question opens, which starts with the Prabhag number and the names of the coorporators mentioned against it. The other questions include: Are the corporators available for you when you need, narrate the problems of your Prabhag in brief, mention any good work done by your corporator, how many marks would you like to give to your corporator on a scale of 1-5, will you re-elect the same corporator this time, what are your suggestions and the last question is optional of giving your name and the mobile number.
The message has appealed to the people to fill in honest information and forward the link to maximum number of people.
