1 Min Read

MYSURU: The state government has ordered the suspension of Chamundeshwari Electricity Supply Corporation (CESC) Managing Director C N Sridhar on Thursday. The action came in the wake of alleged dereliction of duty during an event attended by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah in Mysuru district.

The CM Siddaramaiah had launched a programme to fill 150 lakes from the Cauvery river in Muttina Mullusoge village in Periyapatna taluk of Mysuru district. The CM was scheduled to start the project by pressing a button. However, when he pressed the button, it did not work.

Even though it was the CM’s programme, CESC MD Sridhar, who did not take precautionary measures regarding electricity, was also absent from the programme. In addition to this background of dereliction of duty, the government has been suspended and ordered to create a situation of embarrassment. (ANI)
