Ramu is courageous, but worry some inside about the galoring problems. Council meeting date was fixed and quarrel started between the ruling and opposition is started.
Taking note of the situation, commissioner kept every one at distance.
After a few days of joining, municipal shops are auctioned.Where nobody was participated. After waiting for half an hour, Ramu postponed the auction. A few minutes later, chairperson along with a few council members have arrived to the chamber and asked to conduct the auction immediately. Ramu swiftly answered that it can’t be conducted.
