Physically Challenged demand suspension of corrupt official Lakshmi

Mysuru, August 8:- The Association of Physically Challenged People of Bettadapura, Periyapattana taluk, has alleged that they are not getting any government benefits and they have to bribe officials to get any government benefits.

“Greedy taluk panchayat convener (MRW) Lakshmi has cheated the poor physically challenged people. She has given a clear-cut instruction about bribe for any government benefits. As we are unable to do any work, we are dependent on government schemes. But she has made our lives miserable,” said Sanna Swamy of the association at a press meet held at Mysuru Press Club on Tuesday.

“Physically challenged have been forced to sell their houses to get treatment. The corrupt official Lakshmi should be suspended immediately. We have written to the concerned minister and Member of Parliament. If no action is taken against her, we will stage a protest in front of the Deputy Commissioner’s office,” warned Thammegowda.

Krishna, Shantha, Satish, Raghavendra, Swamy Gowda, Krishnegowda and Mahesh were present. (MR/KMR).
