Mysuru, August 22:- Karnataka Backward Communities Awareness Committee has demanded suspension of H Basavarajendra, Deputy Secretary of Commerce and Industry Department.
“Basavarajendra is one of the few officials to use caste power and influence to reach top positions. No government official is supposed to speak against a government official or the government. If he was so honest, he could have met the chief secretary of the government or Chief Minister Siddaramaiah. But he met the Governor with political intensions,” alleged K S Shivaram at a press meet here on Tuesday.
“If our demand isn’t fulfilled in a week, we will lay siege to Vidhana Soudha,” he added.
C T Acharya, S Divakar, H Veerappa and others were present. (MR/KMR).
