BENGALURU: Members of the Legislative Council (MLC) from teachers and graduates constituency boycotted a meeting called by Primary and Secondary Education Minister Tanveer Sait in Bengaluru on Wednesday.
The decision came after the minister was allegedly caught watching sleazy images on his mobile phone during Tipu Jayanti in Raichur on Thursday. Though the MLCs were present at the private hotel where the meeting was organised, they did not attend it. BJP MLC Ganesh Karnik told reporters, “We will not participate in any of the meetings organised by the minister who is facing such allegations.”
Meanwhile, even Principal Secretary to the Primary and Secondary Education Department Ajay Seth was absent from the meeting which was called to discuss various issues related to the department and teachers.
CID yet to start probe
Two days after the CM handed over the sleazegate case to the cyber crime wing of the Criminal Investigation Department, sources say that the investigations are yet to begin.
A police source said, “Three deputy superintendents of police of the Economic Offences Wing - Sharath M D, Raghavendra K Bhat and Badrinath - are abroad on official work.”
A source from cyber crime wing said, “Even before the investigations started, the CM stated that there was no wrongdoing on Tanveer Sait’s part. This has tied our hands from carrying out an impartial probe.”
