Police Mahasangha seeks sanction to prosecute Siddaramaiah for nepotism, misuse of power

Karnataka Police Mahasangha on Tuesday wrote a letter to Governor Vajubhai Rudabhai Vala seeking sanction to prosecute Chief Minister Siddaramaiah for nepotism and misuse of power.

Earlier, CM Siddaramaiah had appointed Hoskote MLA N.Nagaraj, as the Chairman of the Bengaluru International Airport Area Planning Authority to which the Police Mahasangha had objected and written a letter to the Governor.

In the letter, the Police Mahasangha wrote, “It is apparent that the Chief Minister seems violating the Oath of Office as per his whims and fancies. He has to be made accountable for this violation.”

“Though having absolutely no knowledge on the background of the candidate, the Chief Minister is in the habit of making whimsical recommendation in helping his own partymen to the posts of Chairman to various Boards,” the letter added.

The letter also cited the eligibility criteria for an officer to hold such a post. In it, it is mentioned that a member of the Planning Authority, other than the person appointed as member by virtue of his office shall possess the following criteria.

  1. He shall be ordinarily a resident in the local planning area.
  2. He must be associated with town planning work for at least one year.
  3. He must be a qualified town planner or architect or engineer practising in the state for a period of not less than five years.
  4. He must be a specialist such as an Economist, Geographer, Sociologist or legal petitioner.
