Mangaluru, Sept 18, 2016: It is reported that the ardent wish to don police khaki is stll a burning flame in Anupama Shenoy, former DySP of Kudligi sub-division, Ballari district, who resigned after a public spat with former minister P T Parameshwar Naik. Anupama, in the eye of the storm following the incident with the former minister, dropped clear hints of her desire to be back in khaki at a talk on ’Hyderabad: Swathanthrya - Sangharsha’, the Hyderabad Liberation Day, organized by Yuva Brigade on Saturday.
Speaking her heart out at the programme, Anupama said her anger was not against any politicians, but was against political decisions that transferred her even when election code of conduct was in force in January. " I have submitted two resignations. I am now thinking of taking legal recourse in this connection. In the meantime, I have sent a request letter informing my willingness to withdraw the resignation to the chief minister on August 29. My resignation was accepted within five days and this is considered a major development. Now I have sought withdrawal of resignation citing technical reasons. The level of their concern towards should surface," she said adding that she has received an acknowledgement for her letter from the government.
"I have received a positive reply with a note that my request will be reviewed. Subsequently, CM Siddaramaiah called me too. He asked me why am I putting in papers one day and seeking withdrawal of the same, the next. I told him that I was not happy with my decision. In my village and wherever I go, people kept on saying that I should not have resigned. I explained this to the CM too, who said he too finds himself in a similar state of stepping down. CM said he too is forced to forget the socialist ideology and the anti-corrupt principles that he believed in. He also told me that it is not possible to do good things being a part of the government," Anupama said. "The CM has assured me that he would consider my request for withdrawal of resignation," she added.
Scotching rumours of her perceived entry into politics, Anupama clarified, "I have least interest in politics and moreover there are two more years to go for next election. I will take a decision then."
