Shocked to hear the news of the transfer of Deputy Commissioner C Shikha, one of the most sincere and honest officials, there by sending a wrong message that honest officials are being shunted out for their good work. She was instrumental in the all-round development of Mysuru, special thanks for her fruitful involvement in all developmental activities of the heritage city. She was also instrumental in the city bagging the clean city award twice. She would take all developmental works to their logical end. Though the transfer was a routine work, hope it was not due to political influence and pressure. The timing is suspicious. She has made ground work for a successful Dasara. She should at least be asked to stay till the completion of Dasara and given an honourable transfer.
