Mattu accompanied by Commissioner SMC, Peerzada Haffizullah Shah, Joint Commissioner Admnistration, Abdul Majeed Raina, executive engineers and other municipal officers also visited LD hospital, an official handout read.

On decongestion of city, Mattu while visiting Hari Singh High Street instructed SMC officials to work in coordination with traffic department in order to enforce strict parking regulations.
