Rajahmundry: Newly elected Member of Rajya Sabha Ratnabai has stated that she would urge the Chief Minister to take action against ITDA Project Officer Yogita Ran for her alleged indifferent attitude towards tribals.

Speaking to mediapersons on Friday she said the Project Officer was adamant in meeting tribal people and she failed to handle very important issues like 33-day dharna by parents of a tribal girl of Bodaluru Girls Residential School, where that girl’s pregnancy was allegedly terminated by the tribal welfare officer. She alleged the P.O. had not taken any action in this regard .

The MP also criticised gag orders issued by the officer to media with regard to entry into welfare hostels.
