Thodupuzha: Devikulam sub collector Renu Raj has filed a complaint against MLA S Rajendran pointing out his derogatory comments. Sub collector Renu Raj called up revenue principal secretary and district collector via phone. A detailed complaint including the video will be lodged on Monday.
The controversy began when MLA S Rajendran blocked the revenue team which tried to prevent the construction of Munnar panchayat shopping complex and made defamatory comments about sub collector.
MLA had said that the sub collector Renu Raj who gave stop memo for the construction is not intelligent and was trying to block them because she has IAS. The MLA spoke these words in front of the revenue officials who arrived at the spot to stop construction.
But when the issue became serious, the MLA said he hasn’t made derogatory remarks and it was the sub collector who insulted him. He alleged that she told him to get lost when asked about the stop memo. But, Renu Raj refuted this and said she talked with respect and had said that action will be taken if construction continues.
