KPSC ex-secretary denies charges

Shivaram, the president of Karnataka Rajya Hindulida Vargagala Jaagrutha Vedike, while addressing the media in Mysore on Sunday had demanded an inquiry against former secretaries of the Commission - Harisha Gowda, Srinivas and Ramprasad.

In a rejoinder to the report that appeared in these columns, Gowda has said he succeeded K R Srinivas as KPSC secretary and assisted in holding inquiry and revaluation of answer scripts of the 1998 KAS exams as per the directions of the High Court in a writ petition filed by aggrieved candidates.

Found guilty

The inquiry found K Rameshwarappa and his three relatives guilty resulting in the annulment of their results and debarring them from future examinations. 

Ramprasad was the secretary when the personality tests were conducted.  During the tenure of Srinivas, a sub-committee of the Commission conducted inquiry into allegations of malpractice against the same candidates and found them, the Head examiner Prof Shivanna and the then Secretary guilty of serious examination malpractice.

Based on the report, the government ordered CoD probe against Rameshwarappa, his relatives and the then secretary.

Grudging act

“Naturally, Rameshwarappa and his relatives nurse a grudge against me and the two other secretaries. This explains why no allegation has been made against the then secretary who conducted the tainted valuation annulled by the High Court,” he has said.

The fact that 60 of the recent writ petitioners were the beneficiaries of the 1998 valuation scam is being suppressed in all the forums, the rejoinder notes.
