The committee which was appointed to inquire into this purchase of luxury chairs for the council had reported many errors in the procurement process and the governor on an earlier occasion stated to the media that he is hopeful in summoning all parties responsible and questioning them. Accordingly whole of yesterday the Governor had discussed with officials who were serving in various units and public representatives in order to ascertain whether there were any shortcomings in the procurement process.
