Five corporators of the AIMIM were suspended for the day on Thursday for creating ruckus after they sought tabling of a proposal in the general body meeting of the local civic body to congratulate newly-elected party MP from the city Imtiyaz Jaleel. Mayor Nandkumar Ghodele, who was presiding over the meeting, rejected their proposal.

Instead, the general body meeting of the Aurangabad Municipal Corporation (AMC), ruled by the Shiv Sena-BJP combine, tabled a proposal congratulating Prime Minister Narendra Modi and all other MPs elected in the just held Lok Sabha polls. After the ruling alliance-sponsored proposal was passed, the five AIMIM corporators created ruckus in the house and took away the mace kept at the Mayor's table.

Following this, they were suspended for the day. Talking to the media outside the AMC building, Jaleel termed the suspension of his party's corporators as unfortunate.

The Aurangabad MP said he will now work to bring to light "scams" perpetrated by the saffron combine in the city. Reacting to Jaleel's statement about unearthing "scams", BJP MLA from Aurangabad East Atul Save said the MP should instead support his campaign against gutkhaand liquor and tell city residents about the two issues.
