The work of the committee will be to provide better facilities to Covid positive people by coordinating with the officials of the civic administration. The committee meeting will be held on August 24.
Meanwhile, former mayor Praveen Datke and Congress councillor Sandeep Sahare has raised question on the circular about conducting the meeting online of the Assembly instead of in the house. He has said that he will contest this in the Supreme Court. On this the mayor said that he will discuss this with the head of all the parties and only then take a decision. On Wednesday due to technical glitch during an online meeting of Assembly, it had to be adjourned. On Friday, it started again. After half an hour of work again technical problems started emerging. As a result, the Assembly was adjourned for an indefinite time.
