Congress MLA Threatens Forest Official Over Construction Inside Forest

A Congress legislator in Karnataka has abused power and exhibited hooliganism by threatening a forest official for following the rules.

Villagers near a forest in Bhadravathi region had planned to construct a temple within the forest. They had laid the foundation stone on 31 December. However, the jurisdictional forest officer raised objection to this. He said that any construction inside the forest should have permission from the Forest Department. The villagers then decided to ask Congress MLA BK Sangameshwara for help in this issue.

Sangameshwara called the forest official on the phone and started abusing him. The MLA told the forest officer – a government employee – saying, “They have already done the rituals for the temple. None should obstruct temple construction there. If they do so, I’ll have their hands and legs chopped off. You won’t understand if I say this politely. I’m warning you.”

The Congress, which is part of the coalition government in Karnataka, is yet to officially comment on this kind of threats from one of its MLAs.
