Mangaluru, June 12, 2015: MCC Commissioner Hephsiba Rani Korlapati who has been in the eye of a storm soon after she took charge a few months ago, has been transferred to Vijayapura Zilla Panchayat as its CEO.
Korlapati had taken charge as Commissioner on January 1 this year, several months after the Commissioner’s post fell vacant after the erstwhile Commissioner Shanadi Ajith Kumar Hegde was transferred reportedly due to infighting in the ruling party leaders.
Here it is worth mentioning that the Commissioner’s style of functioning had displeased a section of the Corporators who were hell bent upon getting her transferred. They had even aired the issue before the Chief Minister during his recent visit to the city, but of no avail.
The grouse of the Corporators was that the Commissioner did not pay heed to their words and that she was dictatorial. The Commissioner however had maintained that she was discharging her duties as per the rule book in the best interests of the city.
