I have no hand in transfer of Rohini Sindhuri from Mysuru: Sa Ra Mahesh

Prime News, Karnataka, Politics, Mysuru, June 9:- Janata Dal (Secular) MLA from K R Nagar, Sa Ra Mahesh on Wednesday (June 9) clarified that he never tried to influence the state government to transfer the former Deputy Commissioner of Mysuru, Rohini Sindhuri. “I was only demanding action against her and nothing else.”

Talking to reporters at his office in Mysuru, he said, “The simmering differences between the two Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officers, Rohini Sindhuri and Shilpa Nag, former commissioner of Mysuru City Corporation may have forced the state government to transfer them.”

He said, “Before leaving Mysuru, she said she was being transferred because of the “land mafia” which is under the control of some politicians. During her eight-month stay here, she only took up desilting work at Kergalli Lake and no other work related to land grab in Mysuru.”

Mahesh said, “If her charges against politicians are true, the state government should order a thorough probe after collecting information from her. If there is any violation, it should be published. Unless it is investigated, the truth will not come out.”

The KR Nagar MLA said, “If she was an upright officer, why did she go to the Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa to get her transfer order squashed. On the other hand, Shilpa Nag handed over the charge without a fuss. Rohini Sindhuri is only trying for publicity, but without any stuff. If she has any proof about land grab, she can give it to the state government to probe.”

Reacting to Siddaramaiah’s alleged complaint that Mahesh was responsible for Sindhuri’s transfer, Mahesh said, “He did not raise his voice when hundreds of people died of Covid-19. I don’t know why he is blaming me for her transfer. Siddaramaiah is publicity-hungry and I have not seen a man like him.”

Continuing his tirade against Sindhuri, the JD(S) MLA said, “Who gave her permission to build a swimming pool and a gymnasium at a cost of Rs 65 lakh. The electricity bills for the months of May and June are Rs 42,371 and Rs 36,406 respectively. It is something unimaginable.” (MR/KS)
