MYSORE: Dalits Backward and Minorities Coordination Forum president
Harihara Anandaswamy on Thursday demanded action against the Hunsur
assistant commissioner Lingamurthy and Hunsur tahsildar Lokanath for
allegedly providing Schedule Caste certificates to a non-dalit woman.

Anandaswamy alleged that K Bharathi, who is running a private school
in Hunsur, obtained Schedule Caste certificate by providing fake
documents. "She used the certificate to apply for a gas agency
licence. It was soon brought to the officials' notice, but they have
not taken any action," he claimed, adding that this gas agency license
is particularly reserved for SC candidates.Bharathi, a non-member of
Scheduled Caste, has also obtained fake residential address
certificate. The accused tahsildar and assistant commissioner have
allegedly helped her get the licence. The organization will protest
near deputy commissioner's office demanding action against them on
February 27.
