IAS officer Shilpa Nag on Thursday announced her resignation as the municipal commissioner of Mysuru, alleging harassment by the deputy commissioner over the pandemic management.
In a press conference, Nag said, "Today I am resigning. There is no conducive atmosphere for me to discharge my duties. No one should ever face a situation like this."
Rejecting the allegation of harassment as untrue, deputy commissioner of Mysuru district Rohini Sindhuri said, "The Mysuru City Corporation was submitting unsigned and contradictory ward-wise COVID-19 figures on new cases, deaths and active cases. I had ordered that same be rectified."
Sindhuri also said that Nag had of late stopped attending coronavirus review meetings convened by her.
