Akhila Karnataka Valmiki Nayaka Mahasabha filed a complaint against Legislative Council Speaker Horatti and five others at Dharwad Rural Police Station in connection with the dispute over the management of an educational institute.

It has been alleged that although Basavaraj Horatti is not the chairman of the Sarvodaya Trust, he abuses his authority and exercises the powers of a chairman.
