Ouster of IAS officer unites Mysuru Cong; leaders accuse land, medical mafia behind Rohini Sindhuri's transfer
After ex-CM Siddaramaiah pointed fingers at land mafia behind the shunting of IAS officer Rohini Sindhuri, Mysuru Congress unit has demanded a judicial probe into the incident. The leaders say the IAS officer had alleged that there was a land mafia and they faced hurdles now and then while working to set these anomalies right.
Accusing MP Pratap Simha of fueling differences between two women IAS officers and land mafia as the bone of contention between politicians and officials is said to be the reason for Rohini Sindhuri’s transfer, former CM Siddaramaiah and Mysuru Congress spokesperson M Lakshman have demanded a probe into the incident.
Speaking to reporters from is residence in Bengaluru, Siddaramaiah said, that IAS officers were praised and cornered as per convenience by MP Pratap Simha which led to spat between the two women officers. And questioned the silence of Mysuru District Incharge Minister ST Somashekhar in this regard and termed it as his failure.
Siddaramaiah also questioned the press conference by IAS officer Shilpa Nag which as per him is against the service rules as there was no protocol followed and there was no official communication from the hierarchy. "Government should have taken action, but it appears that the government has lost strength and may be behind the press conference of the officer." Siddaramaiah was quoted as saying.
He further alleged that to make IAS officer Shilpa Nag as Mysuru DC, the BJP might have hatched a ploy and that may be the reason they targeted Rohini Sindhuri and praised Nag and reportedly fuelled differences between the two officers.
Siddaramaiah targeting the government further added that, "The outgoing DC's last statement was that, land mafia was the reason for her transfer. If this is the case then a detailed probe is a must to find out how many land scams have taken place and who is behind them. Everything should be exposed." a report quoted ex-CM as stating.
Echoing similar sentiments, M Lakshman, Mysuru Congress spokesperson said that the reason Mysuru Congress is demanding a judicial probe into the incident is because of the land and medical mafia and statements made by IAS officers.
IAS officer Shilpa Nag has made statements regarding land encroachment and outgoing DC Rohini Sindhuri openly stated that she was facing hurdles while dealing with land mafia.
"Going by what the officials have stated, we are now demanding a probe into the incident. Want to know who are involved in this mafia." said N Lakshman to Asianet Newsable.
The further added that, Congress has now realised that it needs to ignore all the differences and work together to take up such issues before the public unitedly.
