That Tony Chammany and his team will face a tough time in the coming days was clearly indicated by Thursday’s fractious scenes in the Corporation council meet, which saw a group of the ruling front councillors joining the Opposition in slamming the Mayor.

The councillors belonging to I-faction backed the Opposition and demanded an inquiry into the fire at the Brahmapuram plant. Thirteen councillors from the ruling front handed over a letter to the Mayor, supporting the demand for a Vigilance inquiry, leaving the Mayor on a sticky wicket.

An Opposition councillor said that if the Mayor had allowed the voting on the agenda, he would have lost. Chammany however said that the decision needs to be reviewed.
