Since the elected members were late, so was the commissioner M.R. Kumar. The other officials and presspersons, however, were on time and occupied their seats before the scheduled time.
Discussions were held about the underground drainage in the city. State government is yet to clear the Rs. 470 crore proposal on re-modelling of the UGD lines, development of nalas and lakes and their proper protection.
