There was once again a commotion in the Municipal Corporation Hall over 'Vande Mataram'. The councillors from the ruling party Shiv Sena and BJP were enraged over derogatory comments passed by a Muslim lady councillor about Hindu deities. The lady councillor was 'gheraoed' and slogans were raised against her that she should apologize for her comments. The atmosphere in the hall heated up. Finally, the Mayor warned her, on behalf of all members. Therefore, she withdrew her comments. In the last meeting held by Municipal Corporation, Muslim councillors, as also councillors belonging to parties like Congress and Samajawadi party expressed their strong opposition to 'Vande Mataram'! The leader of the House said, ‘Why Congress should oppose 'Vande Mataram' when earlier it had accepted ’Vande Mataram’ as a National Song’. The lady councillor, in question, recited a 'sher' which ridiculed Hindu deities. Finally, she did not apologize but just took back her words.
