Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, Jan 21: The conference hall of Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) presented a perfect example of Akhara today after some councilors entered into argument with Deputy Mayor Sheikh Imran.
The ugly incident culminated with minor injuries to the Deputy Mayor. Imran was attacked by two councilors who owe their allegiance to Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP). The Deputy Mayor who enjoys the support of Congress councilors received minor injuries in the incident.
Reports said that at about 11:30 AM when a meeting of SMC councilors was going on some of the councilors entered into an argument with the Deputy Mayor. In this whole sequence at least two councilors namely Danish and Parvez carried out an assault on Imran thus leading to injuries to him.
Sources told Early Times that the councilors who enjoy the support of BJP took objection to the repeated statements of the Deputy Mayor against the BJP and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). Two of the councilors lost their cool and threw some object towards Imran and the same hit him on his head.
Following the incident there was chaos all around with the councilors belonging to Congress raising slogans against BJP and RSS. On the other side the BJP supported councilors raised hue and cry against the Congress. There was commotion in the conference hall with nothing audible in the din. The Deputy Mayor was taken to the nearby Police Hospital where he was discharged after treatment. He has received one stitch along with some minor bruises. He accused BJP and RSS of carrying out attack on him claiming that he has 'vowed' to eliminate corruption from the Corporation.
Soon after the incident the Congress councilors assembled in the premises of the Corporation and raised slogans against the councilors who carried out attack on Deputy Mayor. They also gave vent to their anger against the Mayor Junaid Azim Mattu and said the attack was carried at the behest of the Mayor.
The Congress councilors tried their best to stop the Mayor from moving out and in fact stopped his vehicle as well. It was only after the intervention of the security that Mattu managed to leave the Corporation amidst the high pitch sloganeering of Congress councilors. Interestingly, the employees of SMC did not join the protests.
Imran said that the seating arrangement was made in such a manner that he was forced to sit among the councilors belonging to BJP. He said the BJP councilors attacked him and given the haphazard seating arrangement he could not run away thus sustaining injuries in the process.
Interestingly, neither the office of Mayor nor the office of Deputy Mayor issued any statement with respect to today's incident.
