Mysuru, June 29:- Dalita Sangharsha Samiti (DSS) has sought legal action against taluk magistrate of T Narasipura, Nagesh for using the word ‘holageri’ which amounts to casteist remark.
“The taluk magistrate has made a casteist slur during Kempegowda jayanti celebration. He said holageris grew as Bengaluru grew. Working under the government and the Constitution, he has given such a statement which is derogatory. If no action is taken against him, we will stage intense protests in the coming days,” said Bannahallihundi Somanna of the organisation.
Basavaraj, Shivaraj, Suresh, Shekhar and others were present. (MR/KS)
