The citizens’ charter has been prepared by residents of two constituencies under the banner ‘I Change Indiranagar’ (a federation of RWAs) with an objective to draw candidates’ attention to ensure sustainable living eco-system and at the same time promoting responsible citizenship through active and positive engagement.
In response to the citizen’s charter, both Mr Raghu and Mr Vasudeva signed it and took a pledge to resolve major issues bothering the constituencies, right from illegal commercialisation of residential areas, illegal pubs and bars, garbage menace, violation of building bylaws and shrinking green cover.
