Bring back DC ROHINI SINDHURI!
Bring back DC ROHINI SINDHURI!
Why this petition matters
The 2009 batch IAS officer Rohini Sindhuri has earned a reputation for honesty and no-nonsense approach to her job. Her intolerance of corruption is said to have earned her a few opponents among influential politicians and real estate businessmen.
The tourist city also known as cultural city, has lately been attracting a large number of tourists in recent years. As a result, the price of land has also risen steeply. Just two decades back the land 20 km away from the city was sold for a few thousands. But the price of an acre now runs into crores of rupees. As a result, land sharks have encroached lakes, gomal, (cattle grazing land) and even government land.
At a media interaction in April after taking charge as Mysuru district DC, Rohini Sindhuri made it clear that her priority would be to protect government lands and conserve lakes.
True to her word, she took the necessary measures to save government land falling under the two survey numbers. She said that the case in respect of 1,600 acres of B-Kharab land had reached the Karnataka HighCourt. She further said that during hearing, the ChiefJustice had asked the government about the status of the 1,600 acres of B-Kharab (wasteland ) land in Kurubarahalli Survey No. 4 and Alanahalli Survey No. 41. The district administration in its reply had said that Kurubarahalli was the habitat of shepherds.
Sindhuri openly said she would spare no effort to evict encroachers from government lands. But the powerful and influential land mafia which encroached the lands has created fake documents with the help of corruptofficials and created residential layouts. Closing ranks, the land mafia is believed to be behind the campaign to malign the DC and is said to be waiting for months for an opportunity to get her transferred.
Deputy Commissioner Rohini Sindhuri said the accusations were false and contrary to facts. In a statement, she said, “It is untrue that there was any harassment from me and none has been mentioned even in the statement issued by Shilpa Nag. She had stopped attending Covid reviews by the DC. The MCC was submitting unsigned and contradictory ward-wise Covid figures on new cases, deaths and active cases. I had ordered that same be rectified.”
“I have ordered that government CCCs be opened in Mysuru City which did not have a single one until recently. In the circumstances, None of this constitutes harassment by any stretch of imagination. Nag was made in-charge of CSR for the whole district. It was later informed to me that she spent almost the whole of it within Mysuru City. So I had asked for a full and proper account of it, but no reply has been received until now. The accounts of spending of the CSR by her are still awaited,” she said.
The people of Mysore were lucky to have her as DC , she was pressured by politicians, and these is just a blame game for them to get her out of the post , We the people of KARNATAKA requesting honorable Prime minister of INDIA to reconsider her post and Bring back ROHINI SINDHURI as DC of Mysore district.
