Spying on the boss

Spying on the bossWorking within the government system is becoming a very delicate matter. On the surface, everything looks calm and composed but you will never know who will stab you in the back and one always has to be cautious. If one visits North Block, where the Home Ministry is located, everything seems routine but behind the curtains and closed doors, no one is spared from probing eyes. The corridors of North Block are agog with the latest buzz that one of the senior most officials of an investigative agency, recently reposted, spied on the friends of his immediate boss. It is also quite astonishing that while no one dared to track his immediate boss, he kept a very close eye on the movements and discussions of his boss’s friends on the phone. Now, the immediate boss is also concerned with the only relief being that the officer concerned has been divested of office. The immediate boss’ only worry is that nothing should come out in the public domain before his retirement. Sources say that Home Ministry officials have become cautious after the reported incident and are trying to find a way to evade the investigative agencies’ network, which works under their domain.
