The entire incident was recorded on the camera and went viral on social media. While many people criticised the mayor's behaviour calling it extremely rude and uncalled for, several users also supported her saying that unclean and clogged drains cause major trouble to the people during the rainy season and that officials not up to the mark should be pulled up for their carelessness.

Kanpur Mayor Pramila Pandey, in a meeting held at the Kanpur Municipal Corporation on Wednesday (June 12), angrily threw the file at an official that narrowly missed his face. A video of the incident showed Pandey losing her cool and scolding the civic body officer in front of others in the meeting and telling him to "get out". The mayor is also seen yelling at the official: "Do you think I am a fool!"

The mayor apparently got angry at the official after he said something to the mayor in response to a question posed by her. The mayor throws away the file and is heard telling the official, "You leave, you leave. You leave from here. How is this from March? We are talking about May..."

The official in his defense says that he also said "May and not March (month)" as claimed by the Governor. However, the mayor refuses to believe the official and tells him angrily to get out of the room.

What Was The Matter?

Local news reports claimed that the mayor was angry at the official for the slackness in the work of drainage cleaning. According to reports, when the mayor asked the official to get the file for the month of May, the official showed the file for the month of March to the mayor.

This got her incensed no end. She then threw away the file which narrowly missed the face of the official. The officer also tried to present his side of the story to the mayor and said that he was also talking about the report for the month of May. However, the mayor was in no mood to hear him and ordered him to just get out.

The entire incident was recorded on the camera and went viral on social media. While many people criticised the mayor's behaviour calling it extremely rude and uncalled for, several users also supported her saying that unclean and clogged drains cause major trouble to the people during the rainy season and that officials not up to the mark should be pulled up for their carelessness.
