Two journalists of the city are sitting on a hunger strike outside NMCM HQ at Belapur protesting the disrespect of the national anthem in the General Body Meeting of November 7 this year. In the general body meeting of November 7 this year, the political battle between the ruling and opposition became ugly when self-engrossed and self-motivated corporators continued shouting and raising slogans even when a few started singing the national anthem. The national anthem was stopped midway, the pending proposals were passed by the house and then the national anthem was sang again. The Editor and Asst. Editor of Mukt Bharat who had earlier filed a complaint against the incident at the CBD Police Station have now sat on a hunger strike outside NMMC HQ.
