F. Funds for community centre which has been converted into Buddhist temple. Rajan Sherly Gaothan, Rs 2.5 lakhs. (Item #19 here).
G. Funds for Zafar Baba Dargah. (Item #17 here).
H. Recently the MLA distributed garbage bins, all over his constituency, bought through his MLA funds. However, there is no trace of such uses in the RTI reply. (Photo here).
I. In his adverts and brochures, MLA claims to have used his funds for Education and other general uses, but those are not reflected in the data revealed under RTI. The question then, is, which funds did he use?
J. We also wish to point out the MLA has directed approximately 85% of the funds available to him in areas where the Municipal Councillors are from his political party. While, this is perhaps not legal offence, it definitely is a moral one.
K. RTI application and reply available here.
What's a voter in my constituency to do?
Vote for a man with a long record like this of misusing his MLA funds?
Or vote for his opponent, part of an alliance of parties that, among other things, a comprehensive inquiry indicts for their crimes during the riots in this city in 1992-93?
What would you do?
Me, I'm not happy with what I did. That's the dilemma of our democracy, the way it leaves a voter unhappy.
