Mayor election case: hearing adjourned till March 16

Regional Commissioner (RC) Shivayogi C Kalasad, on Saturday, postponed the hearing of the case against Mayor B Bhagyavathi, who was charged with indulging in anti-party activities during the mayoral election, to March 16.

As the Mayor remained absent for the proceedings, the RC postponed the case. It may be mentioned that Bhagyavathi, a Corporator, won the polls with the support of the JD(S) and the BJP during the mayoral election.

Following the election, the Congress party expelled Bhagyavathi. Congress city president R Murthy and Congress Corporator K C Shoukat Pasha had approached the RC, demanding her disqualification as corporator. The RC had asked the Mayor to be present for a probe on March 9 at 3 pm.
