Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) Commissioner Shilpa Nag announced her resignation, at a press conference, after accusing Deputy Commissioner, Rohini Sindhuri of harassment.
“Deputy Commissioner Rohini Sindhuri is constantly calling the higher-ups and complaining to them that no work is being done in the MCC. There is no conducive environment to work in Mysuru, and thus, I am resigning from the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) and will send the resignation letter to the Chief Secretary seeking to be relieved from my duties,” said Shilpa Nag.
Besides that, Nag also accused Rohini Sindhuri of holding personal grudge against her. She then alleged that Sindhuri started targeting her after the media said that the MCC was doing a good job in curbing the COVID-19 pandemic in the city.
However, Sindhuri has refuted the above allegations, and called them ‘false and baseless.’
This incident has now come to the notice of Mysuru district in-charge minister S.T. Somashekar. While speaking to the media in Bengaluru, he stated that Shilpa Nag has done a really good job and that the Karnataka government, will not accept her resignation. He then added that he will talk to Karnataka’s Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa, regarding the matter.
Somashekar also assured that he will be meeting Nag tomorrow (Friday), and convince her to revoke her resignation.
Pratap Simha and Rohini Sindhuri engaged in a heated verbal battle
Recently, Mysuru-Kodagu MP Pratap Simha and Rohini Sindhuri reportedly had a verbal spat over the closure of 16 private COVID Care Centres (CCCs) or step-down hospitals in the Mysuru district.
Simha then wrote to Somashekar, sent copies of his letter, to the chief minister and the state chief secretary, seeking a probe on the matter. He also said that investigation should be done on who permitted the opening of the CCCs, and their closure.
Sindhuri then responded to Simha’s allegation, by saying that she knows her responsibility as the head of the District Disaster Management Authority.
