An NCP corporator accused of illegal construction activities has got relief as the civic general body on Thursday rejected a proposal to disqualify her.

Leader of the house Vishakha Raut spoke out against the disqualification and asked Mayor Vishwanath Mahadeshwar not to clear the proposal. Raut argued that the illegal construction of which Rahate is accused of is old and that she was not a corporator at the time.
