MYSURU:  While the state legislature is rattled over an audio tape where Opposition leader in the assembly B S Yeddyurappa had allegedly made a bid to poach a legislator from the Janata Dal (Secular) party, a telephonic conversation between incumbent tahsildar of Mysuru taluk T Ramesh Babu and his successor has hogged limelight. 

Advocate Paduvarahalli Ramakrishna, armed with the audio tape containing the purported talks between the two officials, lodged a complaint with the principal secretary through the deputy commissioner’s office on Monday.

According to a copy of the complaint printed on the letter head of Mysuru Nayakara Pade of which Ramakrishna is the president, a copy of which is also available with TNIE, Ramakrishna alleged,‘‘The talk between the two officials smacks of the very office turning into a centre of venality with corruption pervading the same. They have also spoken about certain castes.”
