Nothing unexpected in the Lokayukta’s resignation. He could have done it earlier.
— H M Adikeri Retired sericulture officer
We cannot believe anyone, nothing is really transparent any more. Only Santhosh Hegde was good.
— Santhosh Software engineer
He did the right thing; he must not continue.
— Rachana Savanth BE student
We knew this was coming. A Lokayukta’s reputation cannot be tainted. He should be a model to everyone else. So better rules and regulations should be in place and we need transparency in the system.
— Srilaxmi Yadav College student
His administration was not transparent, and there’s no one like Santhosh Hegde. The Government has selected N Ananda as Upalokayukta, we have our hopes pinned on him.
— Gunasheela Government employee
He took his time to quit — as part of the system of justice, he shouldn’t conduct himself this way. Santhosh Hegde was good. As for Upalokayukta Ananda, only time will tell.
— Hebburappa Retired judicial office
