Rohini moves HC, says mining mafia behind her transfer

Hassan Deputy Commissioner Rohini Sindhuri Dasari has moved the High Court of Karnataka challenging the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) order, asking her to give representation to the Chief Secretary against her transfer order.

The petition is likely to come up for hearing on Monday. The petition states that the CATs order directing her to appeal to the Chief Secretary is against the nature of justice as she has to make an appeal to the very authority who ordered her transfer. Going back to the Chief secretary is being “virtually pushed towards the wall, the petition said. She has termed her mounting grievances in this regard as pimple on the boil in the petition.

Rohini has contended in the petition that IAS cadre posts have a fixed tenure of two years as per the rules and, despite this she is being transferred as the Hassan Deputy Commissioner for political reasons. The petition claimed she had cracked down on the mining mafia, which had enraged the local politicians who carried a tirade against her to the chief minister who directed for her premature transfer after succumbing to the political pressure. The petition states that many IAS officers with long tenure have been spared without subjecting to transfers. Rohini has urged the court to quash the transfer order of March 3, 2018 and the Tribunals order of March 21, 2018. She stated that she has not approached the chief secretary, as directed by the CAT since there is a likelihood of enforcement of her transfer order with effect from March 26, outer limit fixed by the CAT to maintain a status quo. She further stated if the transfer order is implemented hurriedly, the petition becomes infructuous, and would cause injustice to her.

Rohini has made the principal secretary, Department of Personnel and Administrative Reforms (DPAR), secretary, Department of Personnel and Training, Government of India, and Randeep, deputy commissioner, Mysuru, who had to replace her as the Hassan DC, as respondents. Rohini, who assumed charge as Hassan deputy commissioner in July 2017, was transferred on January 22, 2018 .
