Why should Gupta suf­fer for chair­ing a meet­ing?

Bureaucracy Today - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

Apro­pos to the BT ar­ti­cle on for­mer Coal Sec­re­tary HC Gupta find­ing him­self in a le­gal quag­mire pub­lished in the Septem­ber 1-15, 2016 is­sue. I felt very sorry for the plight of up­right re­tired IAS of­fi­cer. I think that those of­fi­cers who per­form their du­ties in good faith must be sup­ported. I hope the IAS As­so­ci­a­tion will brood over how to get this type of atroc­i­ties on hon­est of­fi­cers cor­rected by the Gov­ern­ment. Also the as­so­ci­a­tion must not sup­port any wrong gov­ern­ment em­ploy­ees, in­clud­ing its own mem­bers. Why should Gupta suf­fer for chair­ing an in­nocu­ous meet­ing? The de­ci­sion taken by the Screen­ing Com­mit­tee is a mat­ter of in­ter­pre­ta­tion. The politi­cians who re­port­edly made money in the Coal Min­istry scam are now bask­ing in the glory of their hid­den wealth. We need pil­lars in In­dia’s Civil Ser­vices, not cater­pil­lars. Hope Gupta will be ac­quit­ted but will those who did the ac­tual wrong­do­ings be sent to jail?
