Suspended warden calling shots at Mulbagal hostel

Ration being supplied to Morarji residential school on daily basis

He inquired into the allegations that a suspended warden had been calling shots in the hostel. The hostel inmates complained that they were being not being provided food according to rules and alleged that they were being fed with only ragi mudde and sambar without any vegetables.

Water scarcity

Apart from this, there is no provision for supply of drinking water to the hostel. “We have to bathe once a week at our natives,” they said adding that they had poured out their woes during the visit of District Social Welfare Officer and nothing had been done so far.

The Chief Executive Officer then summoned the hostel cook for inquiry. The cook said that he had been cooking using the ration supplied by Ramachandrappa, the suspended warden.

Ration supply

Upon further questioning the cooking staff said that they were not in possession of the key of the store room and that there is nothing in the store room. The ration is being supplied from a shop on daily basis, they revealed.

Expressing anguish over supply of ration by a suspended employee, the Chief Executive Officer immediately contacted District Social Welfare Officer Prahlada Gowda over phone and directed to post G Munivenkatappa, the headmaster at Devarayasamudram Government High School as the warden of the hostel and despatch the order immediately.

He also sought a report on the supervision of the hostel by Ramachandrappa, who was suspended two months ago.

Teachers’ complaint

Meanwhile, the teachers complained that they have not been paid salary for the past eleven months and it had become difficult for them to maintain themselves. They said that the situation had turned so pathetic that they have to purchase school records including attendance register and repeated requests to authorities of the Department has brought no respite.  The villagers complained that the taluk social welfare officer has not visited the hostel even for courtesy sake.

The Chief Executive Officer who gave a patient hearing to the litany of woes assured of appropriate steps to redress the grievances. Gram Panchayat vice-president Jammanahally Krishnappa and others were present on the occasion.
