In a memorandum submitted to the Komul president Jayasimha Krishnappa and managing director Gajendra here on Friday, it is said that a plea seeking probe into the irregularities committed by Krishnappa, the deputy manager is yet to be acted upon. The memorandum has sought immediate suspension of Krishnappa.

Abbani Shankar, though not an employee of Komul, has been coming to the Union office every day and blackmailing the officers, members of the managing committee and other staff. “His attempts to bring the Union to the streets should be defeated,” they have stated.

The memorandum has also questioned the reason for not conducting inquiry into irregularity in purchase of CBMM machine during the tenure of M N Venkataram as managing director even after ten years of the purchase. The issue has not been raised in the generalbody meeting the Union. The issue should be looked into and action should be initiated against the guilty.

Similarly, while the Karnataka Milk Federation authorities have submitted their inquiry report on the irregularities committed during the tenure of A S Premanath as the Komul managing director, the Union has not acted upon it even after a long gap. The report should be considered and action initiated against the guilty.

The memorandum has also sought that the incentive being paid to milk producers should not be withdrawn.

Chinnahalli Gopal, Rajesh, K M Srinasa Gowda and others have put their signatures to the memorandum.
