Bachchu Kadu an independent MLA from Achalpur has warned bureaucrats that if they fail to resolve citizens’ grievances then he will slap them. He has also threatened to start an agitation in this regard. Kadu has organised ‘Janta Darbar’ and interacted with citizens for knowing about the problems faced by them.
He said, “We will first approach the bureaucrats and urge them to address the problems faced by citizens. We will request them to look into those issues. If they fail to resolve citizens’s grievances then we will slap them.”
Kadu had organised a meeting with residents of Amravati which received good response from people. He received 250 complaints from residents out of which many of them were resolved on Monday itself. Kadu observed that most of the complaints were not redressed as citizens had failed to bribe officials. While some other issues remained unresolved as people did not have access to senior officials. Most of the tasks remain pending due to bureaucratic way of functioning of officials.
The common man and farmers have to run from pillar to post for meeting officials for obtaining important documents. Despite making several rounds to the office their grievances remain unresolved. Even farmers had met Kadu as they informed him about the hardships they face when they have to visit Talati office and revenue department for getting their work done. He will organise a Janta Darbar in Mumbai on April 21.
Last month Bachchu Kadu grabbed headlines when he had manhandled a deputy secretary at Mantralaya. Maharashtra government employees had assembled at the ground floor of Mantralaya to condemn this act and went on a flash strike. They alleged that Kadu had beaten up Deputy Secretary Bhausaheb Gavit. A police complaint was filed against Kadu, who is known to have roughed up employees in the past too.
Kadu is known for taking up the issues faced by the common man therefore he is very popular among the masses. He has been known for spearheading various agitations in the state. On 9th March Kadu was felicitated with ‘Efficient MLA’ award, constituted in the memory of late Member of Legislative Council Madhavrao Limaye.
In 2011 Kadu had slapped Hagavane for allegedly demanding bribe from one Ankush Raut who had been shortlisted for posting as medical officer in Amravati. Raut was seeking a government order for his appointment as medical officer in Kadu’s constituency.
