WHO WILL HANG BUREAUCRATS
June 7, 2015 by smdave1940
When Narendra Modi won the Assembly Election in 2002, I had written him a letter to be careful of I “X” S officers. IXS officers are executive officers for maintaining Rule of Law. But they are like Packing Cartoons. If the quality of packing material is poor it can undo the product.
Fortunately Narendra Modi set these IXS officer right to great extent in Gujarat. He suspended a lot IAS officers who were involved in corruption in managing the rehabilitation and settlement of distressed people by 2001 earth quake in Gujarat. Modi had become popular in Gujarat due to this reason and not the riots of 2002. Leave this point apart.
Most departmental litigation coming to the court of law are due to the willfully and prejudicially made bad interpretation of the service rule by the IXS officers.
I. ‘X’. S. OFFICERS
Here “X” is a variable, the facial value is simply zero or even negative. But these IXS officers are highly paid and well protected. They perform nearly no duty. They like to depend upon their subordinate to pass blame on them if they are asked to explain.
What is the purpose of putting “X” instead of the real character? It is simply because, they are required to be put on the same line, same level and same category.
You put X=A (Administrative). X=P (Police and also Postal), X=T (telegraph, then telecommunication), X= F (Foreign and also Finance and also Forest),
The full form is Indian “X” Services. They are not Ex Service men. They are not worthy for that, though they are supposed to fight with internal enemies. They even cannot fight with themselves to improve their morale standard.
Yes. It was suggested by Sardar Patel to continue officers like Indian Civil Service (ICS), in view of their judicious approach on every matter and to remain committed to the aims of the Government for right poicy. But this observation was for the pre-independence period.
Sardar Patel unfortunately died early, He could not correct his decision. He might have thought the intellectual and moral level of the forthcoming officers of the similar services would remain the same and the morals of Nehru would not go down to deteriorate the governance.
HOW WERE THE ICS OFFICERS?
A D Gorwala was an ICS officer, who resigned from the services, simply because he did not agree to a suggestion to make changes to the then prevailing, Government’s Food Grain Distribution System. Please note, A D Gorwala had not voluntarily retired. He had resigned. Had he been voluntarily retired, he was to get pension. He kicked the pension. This was his moral sincerity to stick to the original policy and he was not agreeable to the policy, the policy that could bring a failure, though it has been proposed by the minister.
An ICS officer is supposed to have a foresight and wisdom as a part of his qualification. This quality is supposed to be prevaied through out his service. The same is supposed to be the culture of all the I. ‘X’. S. officers.
Nehru had made this cadre a fun. There are so many funny episodes on our IXS officers’ knowledge and behavior.
IAS, IFS, IPS and all such officers who were appointed after independence, had generally possessed low morale, and they were crooked too. Nehru allowed them to flourish through unauthorized channels. Somehow, the bad effect of low morale values and low skill of these officers, could not become prominent in nineteen fifties, barring some fields of governance becasue of the god number of ICS officers and good team with Nehru.
Thereafter the new product of post independence government was so much low, you put your fingure anywhere, and catch them guilty.
All the IXS officers are supposed to be responsible if anything happens wrong or worse in any field, including decisions taken related to staff matters. They are supposed to be expert in service rules with judicious mind.
AN OASIS IN A DESERT
How many names of the IXS officers with outstandingly performance one can give, out of several tens of thousands of IXS officers appointed so far in India?
T N Seshan: He who implemented the guiding laws of conducting fair elections in their true spirit and sense.
S R Rao a Municipal Commissioner of Surat converted the dirtiest city of India into the cleanest city of India.
There may be few more such officers. In total it is like an oasis in a deserted India.
INDIAN FOREIGN SERVICES OFFICERS.
In foreign Indian embassies, you can have glimpses of Indian governance.
A French educational institute wanted to play “Shaakuntala of Kalidasa (शाकुन्तल)” in Paris, in nineteen fifties. The institution approached the Indian Embassy in Paris. Embassy failed to provide any information about the dresses of the Gupta period. Embassy even failed to collect such information from India. That is, it did not have a thought to be helpful. The Institution applied its own mind and the characters of Shakuntal wore the dresses of the period of Mogul. King “Dushyant” dressed and looked like Akbar, and Shakuntala dressed and looked like Noor Jehan.
INDIAN TELECOM SERVICES OFFICERS:
I can give thousand cases of the ITS officers served in my Telecommunication department. Most funny was the computerization system adopted in Commercial section where the system was not competent to arrange waiting list geographically in 1990s. Those who are simply familiar with computer, know very well that even this facilities can be availed through any damn database program. But the officers of even ITS level was unaware of this. God knows what type of program had they purchased and installed in the net work system. I think all the ITS officers should have been dismissed. You can go through this website for other blogs.
I found only one or two ITS officers who were to the mark. One was T H Chaudhary Ahmedabad (1971-1974), who revolutionized the governance wherever he went. He was the funder of VSNL. The other was P D Garg Ahmedabad(1975-1980), who was strict but foresighted. But both these officers were departmental Outsider in ITS. i.e. Earlier they were in the department in lower cadre and passed out the Union Public Service Examination. It is just like G R Khairnar of Mumbai Municipal Corporation who came up from lower level to upper level.
One can write a voluminous book on blunders and corruption of ITS officers.
INDIAN POSTAL SERVICES
The postal staff is heavily loaded. E.g. the work load of Shastrinagar Post Office is increased 20 folds, but the post office staff is having the same area and same number of employees. There is no adiquate space for the customers to stand in a queue. The condition of Bodakdev post office is still worst. You have stand under the hot Sun in a queue. The IPS officers are not capable to solve the difficulty of the staff and the customers. This is not a stray case. Most post offices are facing same and similar problems. Though for certain dealing with post office there is computerization, but the “page set” would not tally with “print” on given size of the paper or book.
I. P. S. AND I. A. S. OFFICERS IN JOINT VENTURE
How the police officers can keep Anderson un-arrested and can allowed him to run away smoothly from India? Keep aside the defective deed executed by Indira Government with the Union Carbide.
How can land mafia, bootleggers and smugglers can flourish without the assistance of IPS officers?
How can Daud run away to Pakistan? How four accused involved in blazing of S-6 coach of Sabarmati Express in 2002, can run away to Pakistan?
How unauthorized constructions can flourished everywhere without the consent of Municipal Commissioner?
How the builders can collect black money in every deadl of sale, from the purchasers, unless vigilance officer, police and IT Commissioner keep their eyes closed?
Who is responsible for rent act and thereby death of a lot human beings in every big cities due to collapse of old houses?
Why the defense secretaries did not resign when Nehru allowed LOC to remain insecure? This tempted China to infiltrate and attack? China had a cake walk victory in 1962.
Why the defense secretary did not resign when the military was illequipped in nineteen fifties?
Why the home secretaries did not resign when the non-Bengali speaking Muslim infiltrators started coming in large scale in India in 1968-1970 and thereafter too?
Why the home secretary did not resigned when Indira Signed the Simla Pact with Bhutto and resultantly converted the great victory into total defeat? The sacrifice of the soldiers went in vain.
Why the Home secretaries of the Union, Home secretary of the state and IPS officers failed to act when Hindus were being murdered in 1990 in Kashmir?
Why the Police Commissioners and Home Secretaries of Union and state failed to secure the human rights of Kashmiri Hindus for decades together?
Did they suppose to wait for government instructions to protect the human rights of Hindus of Kashmir? No. Not at all.
Who is responsible where a lot Bangladeshi Muslims have purchased and occupied the land of the people of North East?
Everywhere you will find the willful failure of high level bureaucrats.
WHO WILL HANG THEM?
Similar is the case when OROP is left with the bureaucrats. However if the Ex-Service men pressurize Narendra Modi through VK Singh, the resolution of the issue is not that difficult, because Narendra Modi would trust VK Singh and not the bureaucrats.
