The sixth meeting of the Council is likely to take place by the end of the month after a gap of six months; the action taken reports of the last five meetings are yet to be made public
Even as the last five meetings of the UT Administrator's Advisory Council, constituted two years back in 2010, are yet to deliver any concrete results, the sixth meeting of the council is likely to take place by the end of September after a gap of six months.
Sources in the UT Administration say that the meeting of the council, which last met in February this year, has been proposed to be held this month, depending on the availability of the UT Administrator Shivraj Patil. For the purpose, various agenda items are being prepared before these are finally approved by the Administrator.
However, the action taken reports of the last five meetings held are yet to be made public.
"What is the point of conducting meetings after meetings if they fail to yield any results? It is high time that the council meetings and their results are taken seriously to make it a worthwhile effort," remarked one of the members of the council.
A senior official of the UT Administration said that a final date of meeting is yet to be announced and till then preparations for the meeting are underway.
At the last meeting held in February, the UT Administrator's Advisory Council had discussed the issue of traffic woes at length and a number of proposals had been put forth to alleviate the traffic congestion in the city, along with other issues pertaining to health, education and security in Chandigarh.
A number of proposals to ease the traffic congestion were put forward to the council by the Punjab Governor and UT Administrator Shivraj Patil during the meet.
