Imposition of taxes is generally considered a bitter pill and even a mention of the word brings about opposition. However, a reverse trend was witnessed at a recent meeting of Federation of Sectors Welfare Association Chandigarh (FOSWAC) whose chairman P C Sanghi proposed that there would be no harm in imposing the much debated house tax. Sanghi, infact has been expressing this opinion while meeting the Mayor. To this the newly elected Mayor opined that it is for the first time he has seen such a situation when the Municipal Corporation is against taxes, while residents are keen on its imposition.
While women empowerment is the buzz word all across, the situation seems to be reverse in the Municipal Corporation. The councillors rue about women being in a better position in the civic body. While there are several women councillors who have become the Mayor of the city twice, the feat had till now not been achieved by any of the male councillors. Subhash Chawla, who was recently elected Mayor has become the first male councillor in the 17 year history of the civic body who has held the position for the second time.
At the recently held two day national symposium held by the department of forensic science, PGIMER, a senior faculty member of the department was lamenting that how unlike other departments of PGI who readily get sponsors in pharmaceutical companies, medical equipment manufactures who foot the bill of such conferences but sadly for this department."After all its only a knife that is used to conduct an autopsy,which is the major work of the department. Who will sponsor us then?",he questioned. "We cannot even talk to our patients, and no media persons also come and take appointments for their known",he went on to add further!
