Should the mu­nic­i­pal cor­po­ra­tion coun­cil­lors be held ac­count­able for the un­spent funds in their re­spec­tive wards? The coun­cil­lors should plan in the be­gin­ning of year on how to spend the ward devel­op­ment fund so that devel­op­ment could take place through­out the year. More­over, coun­cil­lors should hold reg­u­lar meet­ings with res­i­dent wel­fare bod­ies of the ward to ad­dress the prob­lems and then spend the money ac­cord­ingly. We have no­ticed that most of time, funds re­main un­spent due to lazy at­ti­tude of the coun­cil­lors, who do not give req­ui­si­tions of de­mands to MC. MC of­fi­cials should also ask the coun­cil­lors to iden­tify and pre­pare a list of projects they want to un­der­take in their wards in a year.
