The city Lokayukta of New Delhi has accused CM Sheila Dikshit of misrepresenting facts in her run up to the 2008 assembly polls that 60,000 low-cost flats were ready and recommended to the President for censure.
The Lokayukta stated that people should stand up to such political figures that practice unethical practices and must ensure a strong public opinion against such a lot.
Lokayukta Justice Manmohan Sarin’s order came in the wake of a complaint by advocate Sunita Bhardwaj.
The Lokayukta held that in the run up to the 2008 assembly polls, Ms. Dikshit had allegedly misrepresented facts which said that around 60,000 flats were ready for handing over to the people knowing the fact that that many numbers were not available. This, it is alleged, was done just for promotion of her campaign in elections.
The Lokayukta also admitted the fact that any sudden change couldn’t be effected overnight but people could be made wary of the misdeeds and misconducts of the representatives.
