Bengaluru (Karnataka) – A teacher of a Government-run lower primary school in Karnataka’s Chitradurga District has been suspended after he wrote on Facebook that Chief Minister Siddaramaiah could announce freebies because the State’s public debt always rose under his rule.

He posted on Facebook,

“Debt during the tenure of former Chief Ministers – SM Krishna was Rs 3,590 crore, Dharam Singh Rs 15,635 crore, HD Kumaraswamy Rs 3,545 crore, BS Yeddiyurappa Rs 25,653 crore, DV Sadananda Gowda Rs 9,464 crore, Jagadish Shettar Rs 13,464 crore and Siddaramaiah Rs 2,42,000 crore,” he wrote on Facebook.

He added that loans incurred from 1999 when Krishna was the chief minister beginning till 2013, when Shettar took over was Rs 71,331 crore, but it rose to Rs 2,42,000 crore during Siddaramaiah’s tenure between 2013 and 2018. “Hence it is easy for him to announce freebies,” the post said.

The suspension order was issued by Field Education Officer L Jayappa on 22nd May.

Editorial Viewpoints

Why are those who keep talking about individual freedom silent ? This clearly shows that Siddaramaiah’s Administration is dictatorial.

Speaking against politicians is not allowed even under individual freedom, but denigrating Hindu Deities is allowed ! This has to change.
