By the Way

By the way : Raids strike fear

Raids-strike-fearGone are the days when IAS officers were relaxed and convinced that nobody can dare to touch them. There have been income tax, CBI, and Enforcement Directorate (ED) raids on the premises of IAS officers in Noida, Kerala, Maharashtra, Haryana and Madhya Pradesh. Surprisingly, the agencies have dug out stashed cash in millions, properties, luxury cars, and jewelry. After the raids on Hriday Shankar Tewari in Noida, UP IAS officers are living in fear. There are many IAS, IPS officers who have earned millions when they served in the Akhilesh Yadav regime. Most of the corrupt, dishonest and incompetent IAS, IPS officers’ names are in public domain in Lucknow especially that of a lady secretary in the PWD department. Also raided was Rajiv Arora, a 1987-batch IAS officer of the Haryana cadre, in connection with the money laundering probe in the `1,500-crore alleged illegal land acquisition in Gurgaon’s Manesar area. The other officials raided by ED include Surjit Singh, Chief Town Planner and Director Planning of the HSIIDC, and retired IAS officer DR Dhingra, who served as Director of Industry and Commerce in Haryana government. The Bihar government has, meanwhile, issued show-cause notices to over a dozen IAS officers and District Magistrates, asking them under whose permission they left the headquarters to participate in a meeting on February 26 and form a human chain outside Raj Bhavan. The officers have been asked to respond within three days. Over 50 IAS officers, including secretaries of several departments and District Magistrates, had protested against the arrest of Bihar Staff Selection Commission (BSSC) chairman and senior IAS officer Sudhir Kumar in connection with the question paper leak scam. All these incidents have impacted the morale of even those officers who are hardworking and upright.gfiles end logo
