Bengaluru: The social media war between the two senior civil servants in Karnataka escalated on Monday February 20 with IAS officer Rohini Sindhuri asserting to take the issue to its logical conclusion.
“She (IPS D. Roopa Moudgil) has spoken about personal matters. We will take befitting action,” she stated.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has directed Chief Secretary to issue notices to the warring officers for indulging in public spat.
Alleging personal attack, Rohini Sindhuri stated, “The matter has to be brought to the government’s notice. How it is tenable to stoop down to the level of assassinating personal character?. Let her talk about professional issues, but, when she talks personally, it will be taken very strongly. My husband has also spoken about this.”
In another development, Sudheer Reddy, the husband of Rohini Sindhuri has lodged a police complaint against IPS officer D. Roopa with Bagalagunte police in Bengaluru.
In his complaint, he had urged action against Roopa. Speaking to reporters, among other issues, he spoke about late Senior IAS Officer D. K. Ravi, who was linked with Rohini Sindhuri, and said, “Ravi is no more. No one should talk about him now. “I have never come before the media. This is getting personal and I am pitching in,” he said.
