Education department complains to Siddaramaiah against MLA Shivamurthy
BENGALURU: An education department official has alleged that Mayakonda MLA K Shivamurthy abused him verbally, and has made a complaint to higher education minister Tanveer Sait.
Principal secretary to primary and secondary education department Ajay Seth has written a letter to Sait, saying Shivamurthy shouted at him for 15 minutes.
In the letter, a copy of which is with TOI, Seth said the MLA visited his office at 11am on January 27 seeking a progress report on the application for grants for four of his schools and one PU college. The institutions receive grants through the grant-in-aid scheme of the state government.
Seth wrote: “He (the MLA) abused me and threatened me with consequences if I do not put up favourable notes for approval of the request. He kept shouting at me for 15 minutes.”
Shivamurthy’s institutions — D Devaraj Urs rural high school, Chitradurga, Swami Vivekananda high school, Doddaganganahalli, Davanagere, Indira Priyadarshini high school, Gollarahatti, Davanagere, New Education Public School, Yelahanka and Pamparuda Swami PU College, Davanagere — operate under the Chitradurga District Banajara Youth Society of which the MLA is chairman.
