The debate on Times Now conducted on 20th & 21st on the death of DK Ravi, an IAS Officer was an eye opener for all the leading MLAs/MPs of all Parties.
Though such debates are conducted after any occurrence of untoward incident, it is very sad that the real face of the Political Parties at present is that, not a single State Govt. have put-forth an example where it has supported the Commissioner Level Officer who works against the miscreants/Tax evaders/Illegal Encroachments/Corrupt Municipal Corporators/Builders Lobby etc.
It may observed from the record of any city, whenever an Officer works against the wish of ruling MLA/MPs, the same has been forced to transfer elsewhere mainly in another department which is of least importance.
Time has come that the leading news channels should broadcast the total record of major cities where the ruling MLAs/MPs have compelled the Asstt. Commissioner/Commissioner to give-up the work he has taken in the interest of general public. Recently in Akola (Mah.) city, one of the Asstt. Commissioner of Municipal Corpn. has been forced to go on long leave, as he was working against the Builders Lobby/Tax evaders etc.
It is not necessary that every Officer will prove to be DK Ravi, IAS, Bangaluru, however, it is true that there are least number of Politicians who allow an Officer to work as per law. It is a fact that most of the MLAs/MPs are having their share in Construction work or the Industry which is of most profitable in that area, and that is the only reason the existing MLA/MP agitate for bringing Officer of his wish to work in that city/town.
