MLA seeks suspension of tahsildar, inspector

MLA seeks suspension of tahsildar, inspector

He alleged that he was subjected to humiliation by the tahsildar, a couple of months ago.

Moreover, Congress leader Siddaramaiah said the tahsildar had slapped a false case against the MLA leading to his arrest.

The Congress leaders demanded that both the tahsildar and the police inspector, who arrested the MLA, be suspended immediately.

‘Legislator misbehaved’

However, BJP MLA from Shimoga rural K G Kumaraswamy refuted the charges levelled by the Congress.

“The allegations are baseless. It was Congress MLA Sangameshwara who misbehaved with the officials. A complaint was registered, as the MLA slapped the officials. Sangameshwara had behaved rudely with tahsildars in the past too. The government should act only after duly verifying the facts,” said Kumaraswamy.

Previous instance

Last year, the MLA fought with a top official in the Mysore Paper Mills Ltd and demanded action against him as well.

However, Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda assured the members of appropriate action only after ascertaining the facts.
