Secretary SMC Council, Sofi Mohammad Akbar told newsagency KNS while the motion against deputy mayor Sheikh Imran was moved in the first half and 48 corporators voted against him, the motion against the Mayor Junaid Mattu could not be held due to the lack of quorum. “There were less than 36 corporators present when the motion against the Mayor was moved,” they said.

Akbar said the no-confidence-motion against Matu moved by corporator Ghulam Nabi was later withdrawn by him.

On Monday 47 corporators had moved a no-confidence motion against Sheikh Imran while another no-confidence motion on Tuesday against Mattu was moved by 40 corporators. Some of the corporators, who moved no-confidence-motion against the mayor include, Sheikh Imran, Aaqib Renzu, Inayat Rather, Abdul Majeed Tantray, Ghulam Nabi, Wajahat and Sabia Irfan.(KNS)
