Mysore Corporation Commissioner Shilpa Nag claims that she has resigned from her post, citing suffocating work conditions. However, the office of the Chief Secretary said that they have not received any resignation letter as of Thursday evening.
Shilpa alleged humiliation from Mysuru Deputy Commissioner Rohini Sindhuri. "It's been suffocating to work with the DC in Mysuru. I'm resigning today and sending a letter to Chief Secretary. It's humiliating too, I've no patience left in me," she said.
Deputy Commissioner Rohini Sindhuri in rebuttal accused Nag of failing to set up COVID Care Centres and said CSR funds meant for the whole district were spent entirely on the MCC.
“Seeking clarification does not amount to harassment,” Sindhuri said.
