She must have quit in protest: Parameshwara

Home Minister G Parameshwara has said that the resignation of police officer Anupama Shenoy, who was DySP of Kudligi sub-division in Ballari district,  could be a cumulative effect of problems she might have faced because of the district administration.

“Her resignation might not be due to a single issue. It must be a cumulative effect. She must have resigned in protest. May be she had some issues with the district administration. I don’t think she has resigned because of one day’s development,” Parameshwara told Deccan Herald on Wednesday.

He said Anupama had opposed giving licence to a liquor shop to be opened on an approach road to a Dr Ambedkar Bhavan in Kudligi. But she might not have resigned over only this particular issue.

“Efforts are on to make her withdraw her resignation. I do not know her mindset. I have never met or spoken to her,” he said to a question.

Asked whether he would initiate disciplinary action against her for commenting against the government, the home minister said at present there is no plan to take any action.

“If she decides to come out of the service and continues with her attacks against the government, then action would have to be initiated. In case of former police constable Shashidhar, sedition case under the IPC has been booked. But at this point we have no plans to take action,” he said.

A suspense film: Kimmane
The resignation episode of DySP Anupama Shenoy appears to be a suspense film as nothing is clear, said Primary and Secondary Education Minister Kimmane Ratnakar.

Addressing reporters in Vijayapura on Wednesday, he said that if the officer had any problem or information about issues she could not accept, she should clearly speak out, so that a tangible solution could be found. He said the officer had powers to act and need not have waited for more than a month to make an issue of it. He said the officer should have acted against unlawful activities instead of resigning.
