Dereliction of duty on the part of officials would not be tolerated and if negligence on their part is established, they would be suspended immediately.

The minister said compensation had been paid to the kin of five people who had died after consuming illicit liquor at Dibburahalli in Shidlaghatta taluk. “Production, sale and storage of illicit liquor has been banned. Suitable action will be taken against anyone storing and selling illicit liquor in dalit colonies,” the minister warned.

Steps would be taken to acquire 11.14 acres at old Upparahalli of Hosur hobli of Gouribidanur taluk, for distribution to the landless, he added.
