Yamunanagar : A fight on Monday broke out at the Yamunanagar Municipal Corporation office between the supporters of the mayor and her deputy over a matter of chairs falling short, leaving one councillor injured.

Mayor Saroj Bala (Independent) arrived at the office and found her deputy, BJP`s Pawan Bittu, seated there along with some other persons.
Soon, tempers ran high as the mayor, who was with her supporters, found she had no place to sit.

A heated exchange then followed between the two sides over the seating, corporation sources said.

Bala insisted that the senior deputy mayor vacate the chairs, but with Bittu refusing to relent, her supporters soon got into a fight with him.

A few councillors of the 20-member House were present at the Corporation Office at the time and they, too, joined in the melee, leading to injuries for one councillor, BJP`s Sangeeta Singhal.

Singhal was initially taken to the civil hospital for treatment but now has been admitted to a private hospital.

Bittu later submitted a complaint with police against six supporters of the mayor.
