The city corporation gave a deserted look inside with all the chairs empty as the staff decided to protest for the manhandling of their colleagues by councillor on Saturday.
The staff who also protested infront of the corporation office demanded that the councilor Minabai Chougule and her husband who mishandled their colleagues must be arrested.
It may be recalled that on Saturday a team from the anti encroachment department had gone to Gangwadi to remove some encroachment where the councillor had a spat with the municipal staff.
However the emergency services such as hospital and birth/death registration have been excluded from the strike.
Councilors husband Shiva Chougule was brought to the APMC by the police this afternoon.
