India Against Corruption members allege Rajinder Kaur Rattu has not undertaken any work

In a first of its kind action,members of India Against Corruption (IAC) lodged a complaint with the police,on Sunday,against ward 24 Councillor Rajinder Kaur Rattu under Section 420 of Indian Penal Code. In the complaint they have alleged that even two months after she was elected,Rattu is yet to undertake any work in the ward.

They claimed that Rattu had not attended any meetings in the ward and whenever the residents approach her,it was her husband who takes the call. The complainants claimed it to be a breach of trust.

Team Anna claimed that they have conducted a survey in Vikas Nagar in around 2,000 houses,“There were several problems being faced by people including lack of streetlights,absence of police in beat box,lack of facilities like transport,cleanliness and water supply among others. They complain that a report of the survey was given to her two weeks back,but she has not responded,” said a member of IAC.

The complainants have stated that this amounted to breach of trust as a promise was made during elections and then not fulfilled. A complaint was given to the police to register case against under Section 406/420 of the Indian Penal Code.

Rattu meanwhile said that the name of Anna Hazare was being used for cheap publicity. “The work of the people of the area will be done. I am in touch with the people and listening to their problems regularly. Their grievances will be addressed,” she said.
