The first sangat darshan organised by MC commissioner Pradeep Aggarwal saw the civic body receiving 55 complaints on Tuesday.

The majority of complaints pertained to the building branch of encroachments and illegal constructions coming up. Some were also related to water and sewerage problems.

However, an ugly scene was witnessed when a local resident, Kimti Rawal, came to complain about illegal digging on roads by telecom companies. The commissioner asked area SDO to reply, but it turned into a heated argument and Rawal left the MC office after throwing papers on the commissioner.

Some RTI activists too reached the open court and alleged the MC did not give RTI replies on time. “They were told that RTI is itself a full-fledged law with a separate department. Their complaints cannot be entertained in sangat darshan,” said an MC official.
