In what can be seen as a tight slap to the Congress Government for using Government officials for electoral gains, Hassan D.C Rohini Sindhuri recommended suspension of Prasanna Murthy – Tahsildhar of Arakalagudu Taluk for allegedly violating election code of conduct.
Caring a damn for political pressure, Rohini Sindhuri the firebrand IAS officer and D.C of Hassan District, Karnataka has recommended for the transfer of Arkalgudu, Tahsildar Prasanna Murthy as he allegedly connived with Congress leaders violating the model code of conduct which bars any government official from taking/giving any favours to political parties.
Rohini Sindhuri – who is also the District Election officer recommended for the ‘suspension’ of Prasanna Murthy of Arakalagudu – a panchayat town and one among the eight taluks of Hassan district in Karnataka. It is said that Sindhuri has envisaged action against the Tahsildar based on a preliminary report by election observer Venkatarama Reddy.
District BJP Head Yoga Ramesh had complained against the Tahsildar for violating the code of conduct and favouring the ruling party.
Known as a ‘no non-sense officer’ Sindhuri had also recommended action against A.Manju the district-in charge minister for Hassan for granting Bagair Hukum land during election without following the rule book.
Known for keeping corruption at bay through a slew of transparent measures, Sindhuri had been transferred by the Siddaramaih Government; however, Sindhuri had managed a stay against the transfer order as it was in violation of the code of conduct which bars the transfer of any official in-charge of election duty in Karnataka which goes into polls on May 14th-2018
Not afraid to take ‘head on’
Sindhuri had locked the Bungalow of A.Manju – the district in charge minister of Hassan for using the government allocated bungalow for election work which was clearly against the Model Code of Conduct.
Appreciation from the Government
Incidentally the fire brand 2009 batch IAS officer had received appreciation from CM Siddaramaih for doing a commendable job on a crop survey in connection with farmer’s crop insurance scheme earlier last year.
