Suri civic body vice-chairman suspended

Trinamool Congress has initiated an "investigation" into the Suri fiasco by seeking to know under the Right To Information Act which of its councillors voted against its official nominee to the post of chairmanship of Suri Municipality, even as the Pradesh Congress Committee initiated steps to expel councillor Ujjwal Chatterjee, who was appointed vice-chairman by new chairman Ujjwal Mukherjee, an independent candidate. "We have issued a showcause notice to Ujjwal Chatterjee seeking explanation as to why he should not be expelled for violating the party whip on voting and accepting the post of vice-chairman without the consent of the party," PCC working president Pradip Bhattacharya said in Kolkata. Chatterjee was given a week's time to reply. The district Congress committee, meanwhile, issued showcause notices to five other Congress councillors who, too, did not vote for the Trinamool nominee. Bhattacharya said they would be suspended.
