IAS officers’ protest evokes mixed response
Published on Feb 5, 2012 11:20 am IST

The statement of IAS officials that they were being harassed by some ministers has evoked mixed response from the political circles.

Congress MP Undavalli Arun Kumar slammed the IAS officials for trying to shift the blame on minister for irregularities. He said large scale corruption or irregularities in any department were not possible without the nexus of concerned ministers and babus. Therefore, it was wrong on the part of the IAS officials to blame the ministers.

Although rules and regulations are framed by the elected representatives, they are implemented by the IAS officials; Undavalli said adding that feigning ignorance about misdoing in their department was ridiculous. The IAS officials have ignored the basic fundamentals of Indian Administrative Service by speaking out in open about the issue, he said.

BJP State unit president G Kishan Reddy asked as to why the IAS officials did not use their powers when some ministers were indulging in corruption. He described the IAS officials’ protest as ‘childish’ and demanded that the CBI take action against both the IAS officials and minister who were involved in corruption.

TDP leader Yanamala Ramakrishnudu alleged that the ‘big fish’ that IAS officials have referred to was none other that YSR Congress party president YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. He said that the IAS officials never faced problems during the TDP’s rule. However, they have been facing serious allegations of corruption and a few of them have landed in prison due to the corrupt practices of Congress government in the State. (INN)
