Hassan DC ousted for blocking Minister’s percentage business: H.D. Deve Gowda

January 24, 2018

Bengaluru: The transfer of Hassan Deputy Commissioner Rohini Sindhuri Dasari has sparked a political slugfest with Janata Dal (Secular) Supremo H.D. Deve Gowda accusing Hassan District in-charge Minister A. Manju of getting her transferred for not allowing “cuts” in civil works taken up for the Mahamastakabhisheka event in February.

Speaking to reporters in Bengaluru yesterday, Gowda said that Manju had demanded Sindhuri’s transfer as she had tried to curtail financial irregularities and misappropriation of funds. He said that he would write to President Ram Nath Kovind and bring to his notice the bad precedence set by the Government. Gowda said that he would boycott the inaugural ceremony of Mahamastakabhisheka on February 7. “I will not share the dais with this Chief Minister Siddharamaiah now or in future. This is one of the worst Governments I have seen,” he said.

“It is a shame that the Minister (Manju) wanted a percentage even in civil works worth crores of rupees taken up as part of this holy event. Sindhuri’s predecessor too was met with a similar treatment. If officers don’t fall in line, they are shunted out in two or three months. Can you call this a Government?” he said.

He accused that Manju, expecting illegal gratification, had ensured that the scaffolding and road construction works were transferred to Karnataka Road Development Corporation Ltd. (KRDCL) from Public Works Department (PWD).

Recalling the fall of scaffolding to the Gommateshwara statue during the previous Mahamastakabhisheka, Gowda said that Sindhuri had taken all precautions to ensure that there were no untoward incidents this year. Gowda said that Sindhuri was transferred despite his appeal to Chief Secretary Ratna Prabha.

    Just like a prostitute in her ripe old age talking about chastity and morality, mr Gowda is speaking of ethics now! He and his son has done much worse things when they were in power! I still remember, when Devegowda wanted to reach airport to catch a flight to Delhi, Bangalore police were advised to make sure every signal from His home to Bangalore airport are green or the traffic police given them the priority! One if the Traffic cops gave preference to an ambulance and Gowdas car had to stop for 3 minutes, he was suspended at that instant as per the instructions of Mr Gowda!
    Today he is talking of ethics! Not that we don’t appreciate it, but just to remind people! But we don’t want to be conned!
    Also, without corruption, his empire would not have grown so large! His only complaint is, he and his family is not a part of that percentage business! If he is included in the percentage, he does not mind calling the Congress “inclusive” !
