Shivamogga: The incident of a corporator showing his footwear to an RTO has turned ‘political’, here on Tuesday, February 19.
Reason for the incident
It has now come to light that some of the RTO officials had illegally appointed assistants to carry out their regular duties.
It is suspected that the officials have gone to such an extent that they have passed on their login information to their assistants, and have asked them to login on their behalf.
The newly appointed RTO Srinivas took one of the assistants named Javed to task saying, “I will stuff sandals in your mouth.”
A humiliated Javed shared his experience with Bharatiya Janata Party Corporator Vishwas.
Later, an enraged Vishwas barged into Srinivas' chamber, took a slipper in his hands footwear in his hands and challenged the latter to attack Javed with footwear right away.
An argument ensued in the chamber and the situation calmed down only after an hour.
Meanwhile, RTO Srinivas has decided to file a complaint with the police on the matter.
As the Labour Union has shown support to RTO officer Srinivas, the chances are that a case might be filed by Srinivas against Vishwas on grounds obstructing a government official on duty.
This may lead to the vishwas' arrest under a non-bailable section.
Amid this, Vishwas has said, “I am ready for the battle. Let him file a case. I too will fight by gathering all my fellow corporators and will also protest”.
