Mangaluru, Jul 30: MLA U T Khader has demanded the government to give the reason behind transfer of deputy commissioner (DC) Sindhu B Rupesh before completing a year in the district.

Addressing the media here on Thursday July 30, U T Khader said, "Dakshina Kannada had two DCs in the span of one year. The district in-charge minister claims that it was a routine transfer, but there is no rule to change the DC in six months. The deputy commissioner should serve at least for a year or two. The government should reveal the reason behind the transfer. If a place like Dakshina Kannada has two DCs in the span of one year, how will the district move forward?"

He also said, "When the DC received threats, no BJP MLAs, MPs or district in-charge minister has condemned the same. Police strived hard to arrest the accused and have done their duty but why are BJP leaders taking the credit for it? BJP leaders have not come up with a single statement which can give confidence to officials. During our administration, DCs were not transferred every six months nor has an IAS officer resigned."

Khader said that the government and district administration should look into providing more ventilators and oxygen beds. The district lacks ventilators and oxygen beds, while in some hospitals all the available ones are occupied. He suggested that instead of reserving 50 percent of beds for Covid patients, it would be better to convert these beds to oxygen beds.

When asked about Rafale fighter jets coming to India, Khader said, "Rafale agreement was done by the Congress for Rs 600 crore which was raised to Rs 1,666 crores. The responsibility was cancelled from HAL and given to Anil Ambani who has not produced even a plastic toy plane.”

Former MLC Ivan D'Souza, former mayor Kavitha Sanil, former MLA J R Lobo, A C Vinayaraj and others were present.

    Mr. U.T. Khader, Please clear the issues of Ullal Constituency , In entire Ullal there is no drainage facility. Please consontrate about that issue. Drinage Line was done few years back till now connections are not done. So many Apartments, houses are facing problem because of this. Because of this peoples are suffering , because of this health issues also increasing. Ullal people are elected you continuesly. But what you are doing? Simply calling press meet for unnecessary issue. Fist clear these type of major issues. Now your ulla peoples only telling that Na Ghar ka Na Ghaat ka this happend your situation. Kuch tho sudharo. Consontrate about progress of your Ullal.

    There are more boiling issues Mr, Khader, in DK and Mlore currently . Even your constituency is topping the list with COVID19 cases. People venture out without masks and are arrogant when asked. Any action from your side ...? No. Forget about DC transfer. These sort of Conference gimmics for non issues wont garner any votes. All leaders or future leaders are not lucky as you. Just thank God you have a very safe constituency. You know why.

    These are non issues Mr. Khader for common public. If can talk about economy, price rise , petrol prices, Mescom bills, job losses , medical situation etc you may get public on your side.
