Mangaluru, Oct 31, 2017: Pandemonium prevailed at the MCC Council meeting held here on October 31, Tuesday when opposition BJP corporators raised a clamour over the recent incident wherein it has been alleged that the Mayor had assaulted the wife of the watchman of the apartment where she stays.
There was a war of words between ruling Congress and Oppositon BJP corporators over the issue with the latter demanding the resignation of the Mayor.
BJP Corprorator and former mayor Ganesh Hosabettu went on to mock the Mayor stating that she had inaugurated a Karate event right at her own building instead of at a public place.
Even Corporator Roopa D Bangera joined him and said the Mayor must quit over the issue. The BJP Corporators also staged a dharna in the well of the House and were in no mood to listen to the clarification of the Mayor.
The BJP corporators also shouted slogans against the Mayor when she sought just five minutes to issue a clarification.

The meeting had to be ultimately adjourned by the Mayor.
