Bangalore, Apr 16 (UNI) Karnataka State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) Chairman Justice S R Nayak today charged the state administration with having failed to provide adequate infrastructural facilities and supporting staff to it.

Inaugurating a seminar on 'Human Rights', organised by the Bangalore city police here, justice Nayak said the administration was acting contrary to the Constitution by denying the SHRC a convenient place to work in.

''The administration is sleeping over many of our requisitions seeking infrastructural facilities and supporting staff,'' he said.

Justice Nayak said the SHRC was seriously handicapped with dearth of infrastructure and human resources.

''The SHRC has submitted draft rules for services and recruitment to both the Centre and the state government many months back.

However, it is yet to receive any attention from the respective authorities,'' he said.

Stating that the Government should be held responsible if the SHRC failed in discharging its duties and responsibilities, he alleged that the commision was not in a position to investigate many cases due to lack of cooperation from the state government.
