Tax rebate extended by a month

The first Dalit woman mayor, who took charge from the outgoing mayor S K Nataraj, thanked the senior members of the BJP for instilling confidence in her and appealed to media and the Opposition to help her run the Council smoothly.

A Council business advisory committee comprising mayor, deputy mayor, senior corporators from the ruling and the Opposition parties will be constituted to assess the performance of the corporators, she said. Congress leader Chandrashekhar said the party would co-operate with the mayor in the successful conduct of the Council’s business.

Home Minister R Ashoka, who was present along with other city MLAs, said the party has set an example in Karnataka by providing an opportunity to a Dalit woman corporator to become a mayor.

"Many of our lakes fell prey to the growing needs of the City. Nataraj did some good work, which has to be carried forward," Ashoka told the Mayor.
