Having been absent for more than one month, Ramdas said that Nagaraj was also accused of failing to disburse salary to priests on time.

Checking the attendance of officials through the biometric system, Ramdas found that majority of the staff were coming late to the office.

Time is nothing!

Pointing out that the officials had to reach office by 10 am, he said that they were given a cushion of 15 minutes. He said that instructions would be given to cut half-day salary of any person found coming late continuously for three days. Having arrived in the town at around 11 am, Ramdas was greeted by a long queue of people waiting to avail RTC at the office counter.

Survey dept

Visiting the Survey Department sprang up more surprises. More than 4,600 files were found to be pending in the department.

Ramdas found that survey was yet to be carried out for those who had submitted applications more than two years ago.

Replying to the minister’s query, the office staff observed that the delay was due to the lack of resources. They said that while 12 staffers had to be recruited by the department, only six were employed until now.

Dissatisfied with the reply, Ramdas said survey was being carried out according to the will of the surveyors.

While many applications pending for more than two years were yet to be touched, recent applications had been disposed, he added.

Ramdas said that there was no scientific method used, but instead surveyors were ‘picking and choosing’ based on their choice.

Karnataka Housing Board Chairman G T Devegowda accompanied the minister during his visit.

Where art thou? Enters the holy cow!

“Manohar... Poornima... Ananth Padmanabha... Nagaraj,” called district in-charge minister Ramdas. But there was none to reply. Angered at the absence of staff, Ramdas said, “Is this an office? Taluk office is a common man’s office, but there is no one here.”

Continuing, he questioned, “How can people go on leave without giving leave letters?” While many officials were absent, a cow entered the taluk office and made sure that it marked its attendance.
