The BJP has requested the government to impeach Mayor Mohd. Majid Hussain under Sections 679 A & B of the GHMC Act for disregarding constitutional norms and High Court orders. Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, party leaders Bandaru Dattatreya, B. Venkat Reddy and Bangari Prakash charged that Mr. Hussain was not fit to remain in office for the partisan manner in which he had been functioning.

He has not been holding council meetings for the last nine months and has also hatched a conspiracy to deny Uday Kumar a chance to be administered the oath of office as the Langar Houze Corporator.

“If the Mayor does not allow our corporator to take the oath tomorrow (Wednesday), we will seek contempt of court proceedings,” they said. Mr. Dattatreya said civic work to the tune of Rs. 300 crore was awaiting approval from the council meeting, but the Mayor was not at all concerned about ensuring that citizens got basic amenities.
