The Indian Administrative Services officials on Friday registered protest against the arrest of IAS officials by the Central Bureau of Investigation in various scams in the State.
Nearly 70 serving IAS officials met Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy at his camp office at Begumpet on Friday evening. The officials complained that they were being made scapegoat in the cases. They contended that all major decisions are taken by the State Cabinet and the IAS officials simply implement them. Therefore, it was wrong on the part of the probing agencies to hold IAS officials responsible for any wrong doings.
Talking to media persons after meeting the Chief Minister, IAS Officers Association representative Prashant Mahapatra said that the CBI should have enquired about the powers and limitations that the IAS officials enjoy in taking major decision. Therefore, he alleged, that the CBI arrested the IAS officials in different cases without doing its homework. He said the IAS officials have discharged their duties as per the law.
“We need to provide an appropriate environment so that the officers can work fearlessly, without sword hanging on their heads,” he said.
Mahapatra said that the IAS officials have raised generic issues and have discussed the ways to build a healthy government. He said that the Chief Minister has assured of looking into the matter and take effective measures to ensure that the IAS officials work without any fear.
Earlier, about 20 senior IAS officials held a meeting to finalise the agenda for meeting with the Chief Minister. Sources say that the IAS officials will again meet on February 5 to discuss the future course of action. (INN)
