The work in prestigious institutions of our state is eroding fast is evident frm the shameful episode in the BOPEE. Had the administration taken cognizance of the CID reports about the functioning of the BOPEE, rot could have been arrested much earlier.But the govt acted very late after the things took ugly turn. I do not understand why govt was so generous in giving Mr. Mushtaq extension after extension when it had better choices available. It too has to be seen in a broader perspective as to what prompted the govt to keep Mr. Sharma new BOPEE chief to wait for two months at BOPEE with no work. What was its compulsion?.
If the govt announced new chief for BOPEE what was the fun of retaining Mr. Mushtaq Pir as chief for extended period even after order was issued?
This has created more doubts in the minds of public. Was that period given to him to bury evidence related to the latest selection list issued by BOPEE.
If reports of the media are to be believed, the presence of former BOPEE chief in Delhi for 20 days when papers were being printed in Delhi lend credence to the suspicions.
You can not take people for granted and as easy as the administration may be thinking. The people are very intelligent abreast with the technological know how and can understand the tactics of the vested interests being part of the society. Why Pir’s successor was kept waiting for two months by administration after issuing order for his appointment deserves an answer from the authorities.
and the purpose of the detention of the former chiefs further involvement in the The Crime Branch has this time done a commendable job by exposing the high profile scandal and the people in general have expressed satisfaction over the working of the deptt.
It is hoped that the crime branch works with more transparency and reaches to roots of the scam in order to restore credibility of such institutions.
