City fathers fail to disclose assets, liabilities

Civic representatives in Gulbarga, Bidar and Yadgir ditsricts under Hyderabad-Karnatak region face the threat of disqualification as they have failed to submit their assets and liabilities. The Karnataka Municipal Corporation Act, 1976 19(1) Act mandates that members of the city corporation or municipality should declare their assets and liabilities before the mayor. However, councillors are ignorant of the Act.
