But Mayor Sharma sat on a chair opposite Saifia College in knee-deep water and made calls to Public Works Department officials and pulling them up for the mess.
Sure enought, the PWD officers rushed to the spot and assured the Mayor of taking corrective measures.
However, Congress was not impressed and blamed the Mayor for failing to improve civic amenities in Bhopal.>
