With 100’s of (BBMP) Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike workers hitting work to dispute against Yediyur councillor N.R. Ramesh supposedly assaulting an assembly D worker, the people’ services were strike on Thursday.
The BBMP workers’ amalgamation called off the hit after directives from head D. Venkatesh Murthy and BBMP Commissioner Siddaiah. The union submitted a memorandum requesting action against the councillor to Mr. Murthy and Mr. Siddaiah.
Prior in the day, furious protesters took out a procession and scorched an effigy of the councillor on the BBMP head office campus. With a majority of agents participating in the hit, most agencies were locked and the BBMP office was dressed in a deserted gaze.
On Wednesday, Mr. Ramesh supposedly slapped assembly D employee E. Suresh five times. Mr. Suresh, who got a health certificate from Victoria clinic, filed an accusation against Mr. Ramesh with the Halasoor Gate police station.
Union president Subramanyam claimed that the employees were employed in a vitiated air. “Why should a voted into office representative assault an employee who is only discharging his duties?” he inquired and urged Mr. Murthy to initiate activity against Mr. Ramesh.
Speaking to the employees, Mr. Murthy said that it would be best for BBMP if the employees and elected representatives worked in harmony. “I have not ever arrived over such an incident. I will invite Mr. Ramesh, Mr. Suresh and union members for a dialogue to resolve the issue.”
Meantime, Mr. Siddaiah labeled the incident as “unsavory”. “This does not augur well for the BBMP as it has created unnecessary awful body-fluid. The true fact will come out after the police investigation,” he addressed.
