After the suspension of two employees for alleged irregularities in fuel meant for fogging vehicles, now municipal corporation officials are planning action against the petrol pump owners and its employees as one of the health branch officials has submitted a complaint against the petrol pump from where these employees were caught red handed. Mayor Balkar Sandhu on Friday had caught two employees red-handed at the petrol pump near Arora palace and were suspended immediately. Even councillors have started demanding a thorough probe in this matter.
The councillor, Kuldeep Singh Bitta, has brought the matter of a fogging machine to the knowledge of the mayor while claiming that the machine never put to use since July for fogging, whereas in the records the fuel was being shown as being filled in this vehicle. He asked the mayor to pay attention towards the same and big fishes would be caught.
