Reddy transfers 30 top KMF officials

Somashekar Reddy who took over as the KMF chairman recently, has transferred 30 top officials of the KMF, sources said.

Reddy was appointed after the BJP government ordered a probe against KMF Managing Director I R Ramalinga Gowda for alleged irregularities in the sale of butter and ghee, which caused immense loss to the KMF.

The Co-operation department had issued an order in this regard in August.
The KMF Board in its meeting had passed a resolution that the MD should keep away from office till the probe was completed. As a result, Gowda, sources said, had not attended his office for nearly three months.

 He was appointed the KMF MD about two and a half years ago by the then Chairman H D Revanna.
