Mangaluru, April 25, 2015: Congress corporators met CM Siddaramaiah at Mangalore International Airport on April 24, Friday and are said to have expressed grievances against MCC Commissioner Hephsiba Rani Korlapati and demanded her transfer. The corporators have allege that the commissioner was ignoring the corporators.
It is said the commissioner had issued a notice to an attender for allowing a corporator to enter the commissioner’s chamber without permission. Based on the notice, the corporators have discussed the issue with the chief minister.
The corporators discussed the issue with the CM at the airport lounge. Mayor Jacintha Vijay Alfred, Deputy Mayor Yashvanth Chitrapura, Standing committee Presidents Harinath, Deepak Poojary, Corporators Shashidhar Hegde, Kavitha, Praveen Chandra Alva, Appi, Kavitha Sanil and others were present.
