NewZNew (Fatehgarh Sahib) : Fatehgarh Sahib SDM Pooja Syal Grewal has lodged a complaint with the Deputy Commissioner against Congress MLA Kuljeet Singh Nagra for using abusive language during a meeting at the Sirhind Municipal Council office today.
Nagra, however, refuted the allegations and said he did not use any abusive language against the SDM. He alleged the SDM was not following the protocol and had insulted him in the public.
She told people to directly contact her, instead of approaching their elected representative from the area, he said. He told the SDM that it was against the protocol, he said. He would submit a complaint to the Vidhan Sabha Speaker in that regard, he added.
In her complaint to DC Arun Sekhri, the SDM said she had just asked the people that they could directly approach her for getting their grievances redressed. She alleged the MLA got agitated over this and indulged in heated arguments and later used foul language against her.
The MLA said he visited the MC office as a meeting was called on the issue of encroachments in the old Sirhind grain market. He alleged the attitude of the SDM was not cooperative. She did not reach the meeting at scheduled time of 10.30 am and when he tried to contact, her she did not attend his call.
He said later he approached the DC and it was on his (DC’s) intervention that the SDM reached the MC office at 11.30 am.
Confirming the development, DC Sekhri said the SDM had come to her and communicated that the MLA had used abusive language against her in public. He said he had asked here to submit a written complaint so that it could be forwarded to the state government.
