45 corporators along with some officers have left for a study tour to Shimla on Tuesday. They would go to Shimla from Mumbai to Chandigarh by flight and then by bus.
The roads in the city are in bad condition, the corporation cries it does not have money to pay pension and even undertake new works due to a dearth of funds, but when it comes to Shimla study tour it was passed by all Corporators and even they got the State Govt approval in a months time.
A couple of months back a delegation from Shimla was here on a visit and they had invited the Corporators to visit Shimla.
Last year a few corporators had gone to Chandigarh on a similar study tour.
So it is the typical case of ‘yardo duddu Yellammana jatre’ (feasting on someone else’s money).
