They demanded a separate office space for the councillor, and asked to have him shifted from community centre because of his meddling in the day-to-day functioning of the RWA.
The newly elected RWA members of Sector 14, Gurgaon, met officials of MCG, levelling complaints against local councillor Anoop Singh. They demanded a separate office space for the councillor, and asked to have him shifted from the community centre because of his meddling in the day-to-day functioning of the RWA.
The councillor, according to the RWA members, forcibly seized control of the library at the community centre and turned it into his office space. There is no space left for the residents to organise any function in the hall, as the library books and racks have been dumped in the hall, the members further alleged.
“We even called the police control room. The councillor has been openly behaving like a goon and no one is asking him to mend his ways. We are senior citizens who are working for the betterment of the area and he is not even willing to acknowledge that,” RWA president HS Nanda complained.
Joint commissioner of MCG, Anu Sheokand, held the meeting with the executive members. They were unable to meet MCG commissioner Yashpal Yadav.
“The joint commissioner listened to our problems. She sent an MCG official arrived to the community centre, who took pictures of the area,” RWA vice-president Umesh Kumar Mudgil said.
The local councillor, in the words of the RWA, supported the outgoing RWA members who lost the elections, and therefore, does not support any development work in the area.
Singh, however, rubbished the allegations, and said the office was allotted to him by the authorities. “I am ready to accept whatever decision the authority takes. If I am asked to move to a new office, I will obey.” he added.
