Shimla Municipal Corporation to seek poll panel’s nod to convene House

Shimla, September 28

The monthly House of the Shimla Municipal Corporation (MC) was adjourned following the announcement of the byelections to the Mandi Lok Sabha constituency and three Assembly seats in the state. "The model code of conduct has come into effect with the announcement of the byelections, hence it was decided to adjourn the House," said Municipal Commissioner Ashish Kohli.

As the model code of conduct has come into force, the MC can't take development or policy-related decisions. "We will write to the Election Commission (EC) to seek its permission to conduct the House. There is a precedence of the EC allowing the House to meet to carry out routine functions even when the code of conduct is in force," said Kohli. — TNS
