Karnataka govt transfers 2 officers to 1 PWD post in Karwar

The outgoing (in charge) executive engineer in the public works department (PWD) here is in a dilemma. The government has simultaneously transferred two officers to the post and both have refused to take ‘no’ for an answer. With PWD minister HD Revanna occupied with saving the government, there might not be a resolution soon. The post had been lying vacant and assistant executive engineer Raju Naik was told to hold a charge.

Three days ago, two officers — Krishnareddy and Baraganti Ashok Kumar — turned up at the PWD office with transfer orders for the executive engineer’s post. Sources in the PWD office said they were surprised to see two officers with transfer orders for the same post.

An argument followed between Krishnareddy and Baraganti as both staked claim to the post. ‘The only ministry can clarify matter’ Naik reportedly contacted his higher-ups at the divisional office in Dharwad and sought direction. They told him to sort out the matter by speaking to the officers. “The transfers have been done at the ministerial level. The matter has to be clarified only by the ministry,” an officer reportedly told Naik. Officers at the divisional office could not be contacted. Naik refused comments.

Uttara Kannada BJP blamed Congress and JD(S) for going on a transfer spree even as the government was on the verge of collapse. BJP district spokesperson Rajesh Nayak accused PWD minister HD Revanna of making money by promising transfers to more than one person for one post. “ The next government should cancel all transfers carried out by this corrupt government,” he said.
