Kumaraswamy deplores MLAs abusing officials

 State JD(S) president H D Kumaraswamy said legislators’ tendency of humiliating and abusing government officials was increasing.

He was indirectly referring to his party MLA from Magadi, H C Balakrishna, abusing a police officer over a petty issue in Kudur police station of Ramanagaram district.

Legislators abusing officials and asking them to break rules is not uncommon. Foul words are being used. This is unfortunate. Some legislators presume that they can garner support of their followers by attacking officers in public. The MLA has been elected four times. It is not that he has no experience that he has to behave rudely, he said.
