The unrest among government staff and officials came to the fore on Monday as they staged a protest against the harassment and misuse of power by K Rameshwarappa, Deputy Director of Food and Civil Supplies Department at the DC office premises in the city.
The sub-ordinate staff and officials in the department alleged that Rameshwarappa was not allowing them to carry out their duties properly.
“He has been unnecessarily targeting his subordinates by registering complaints at police stations and not allowing them to work as well as blaming the staff that “we have been destroying office records. We have not been allowed to access the records. Rameshwarappa is also indulging in nepotism with a few henchmen,” they alleged.
Later, the staff met the Deputy Commissioner, D Randeep and put forth their grievances. They appealed to the DC to resolve the issue as early as possible.
