Work like sweeping of roads and cleaning of drains is pending and  MCC has the right to with hold payments.

Mayor stated that the company has even kept workers’ provident fund pending for three months even after MCC asked it to pay the same on September 7.  This attitude will force us to make certain arrangements.

Responding to allegations on the provident fund of  staff,  company’s project manager  said that it is only an  excuse there is no reasoning.

How sad, The Antony waste collector’s are very prompt in collection and the MCC has to co-operate with them. Because the city sounds clean these day’s the credit has to go to them and not MCC.

The Mayor cannot be so irresponsible in making payments. If this is the case the public will once again start littering waste here and there.
