Digvijaya defends govt in Anupama issue

 Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Friday defended the government in the Anupama Shenoy issue, saying that the government had no option but to accept the resignation.

The government asked her to re-consider her decision several times. But she insisted on quitting her job. “The Congress and its leaders deal with officers with highest regard. But I don’t know the reason behind her (Anupama) resignation,” he told reporters who sought his reaction on the issue.

Asked whether he saw a BJP conspiracy in the issue, Singh, who is also AICC general secretary incharge of Karnataka, said the BJP is a master conspirator. The saffron party has now joined hands with the JD(S), he charged.

Labour Minister P T Parameshwar Naik who has been in news with regard to the controversy surrounding Shenoy’s resignation, on Friday asked who Shenoy was.

When mediapersons sought his reaction with regard to the government accepting her resignation, the minister said, “Which DySP? There are 7 to 8 DySPs in my district, I don’t know who you are referring to.” When reporters mentioned Shenoy’s name, Naik said, “That is a closed chapter. I have nothing to do with the matter.”
