The mayor had suspended Congress corporators Sheetal Mhatre, Waqarunnisa Ansari, Ajanta Yadav, Parul Mehta, Nayana Seth and Anita Yadav for 15 days for indiscipline and indecent behaviour. 

On Wednesday afternoon, the Congress corporators took to shouting slogan to against the Mayor outside her office while she was having a meeting with some leaders. After the meeting, Congress group leader Devendra Amberkar announced that the mayor had agreed to take back the suspension. However, the Congress corporators were not allowed to attend the general body meeting today, which led to the ruckus and manhandling of Sheetal Mhatre.
