Work in TMA office standstill: Following the registration of corruption cases against key officials of the Gujrat TMA, all the official work has come to almost standstill. The TMA employees salaries have been hindered, causing resentment among employees as other officials are reluctant to work on the posts of TMA officials who have been arrested by anti-corruption establishment on charges of corruption.No substitute officials were instantly available to TMA thus causing disarray in the office. It may be recalled that at the report of TMO Gujrat, the anti-corruption establishment has registered corruption cases against 14-officials including auditor, SDO, Sub-Engineer, Auditor and Xen who are undergoing investigation. The situation has created a chaos and it is feared that if the substitute officials are not immediately appointed things may get worst.
