Verbal duel between Pratap Simha and Rohini Sindhuri continues

May 30, 2021

Mysore/Mysuru: The verbal duel between MP Pratap Simha and DC Rohini Sindhuri has continued. 

At the meeting, an upset DC wanted to know what work the MP wanted to get her done. Asking the MP not to make such remarks against her, the DC said that she knew her responsibility as head of the District Disaster Management Authority.

Pratap Simha, responding to the DC, wanted Rohini Sindhuri  to understand the difference between Administrative and Executive powers. Asserting that the Executive has the power to overrule  Administrative authority, the MP said that the DC must not think that Administrative power is supreme. Executive has the power to change a DC, he claimed.

When T. Narasipur MLA Ashwin Kumar suggested that Tahsildars be given the powers for drugs purchase, Simha lashed out at the DC for the delay in procurement of drugs, saying that the delay could be considered as an act of negligence.

The DC, who strongly objected to this remark, said that the delay can be attributed to KDLWS, which is the authority for procurement of drugs. 

Contending that there is no provision for purchase of drugs under State Disaster Response Fund (SDRF), she said that still, the District Administration has taken special permission from the Government for releasing funds under this head in order to address drugs shortage issue in the district.

DC says the MP turned against her for ordering shutting down of COVID Care Centres

Frequently objecting to the MP Pratap Simha’s remarks during the meeting, DC Rohini Sindhuri alleged that the MP was issuing statements against her for shutting down private COVID Care Centres (CCCs), which were ordered to close down for violation of Government COVID Care guidelines.

Responding to the DC’s charge, Simha asserted that he had no connection nor had any personal interest with COVID centres. Asking the DC not to make such frivolous charges against him, he alleged that the DC has formed a WhatsApp group with the media to target him. Maintaining that he was against personal attacks, Pratap Simha said that he would have publicly raised the issue of  alleged construction of a swimming pool in the DC residential quarters, had he wanted to make any personal attacks against her. The MP once again targeted Rohini saying that she was making calls to his party leaders.

    The duel between MP and DC is unwarranted at this time with people dying all around us, and Coronavirus is becoming difficult to handle. Politicians feel they are God almighty after winning elections, and try to force their decisions. During this time, every Tom-Dick-Harry has solutions how to handle. More so when the going is tough. It becomes a free for all. It is important for DC to stay focused, and not get drawn into ugly fight with MP. Stay focussed, do what is right. Rest…crows always “caw”, dogs always “bhow”… cats always “meow” – if we keep responding to every sound, then we might just reach half-way in our goal – tired, and worried. Our DC Rohini Sindhuri has taken the right steps and suggested several steps, which the govt rejected first only to follow the line later. Our MP need to stop meddling with his brazen display of “power”. “Power” can only take you that much….it is depending on how much battery is charged in the first place.
