Bureaucrats have no accountability and are almost immune from any action against them due to the complicated procedures formulated by the bureaucrats themselves.
Non-performing and inefficient Bureaucrats were just shifted around to the posts where they could cause minimum damage or their inefficiency would not be glaring .
The news item in today's local english newspaper The Hitavada, has come as a breath of fresh air. The news item :
"129 non-performig officers given forced retirement ".
Finally , finally thanks to Modi Government some Grade A and B officers, as a punishment,have been given forced retirement . It is good begining . Still ,
Figures indicate that  out of 800 odd grade A officers only 1 officer was not performing . As compared to 1 out of 427 odd grade B officers .
The figures do not seem to conform to theory of normal destribution . Only 1 out of 800?
It would be interesting to know firstly .the criteria on which performances were evaluated and secondaly the retirement benifits granted to the punished officers are they same as those given to normally retiring officers .
All said and done a GOOD start . More power to Mr Modi and his Government .


Three youths from stone pelting mob killed in Badgam., Kashmir.

I am breaking self imposed refusal to write to  Editor The Hitvada.a local english language news paper.

Dera Sir,
I have been writing to you with a request to publish my letters in Letter to Editor coloumn of your news paper  Mostely they have not been published , most probably as the subjects were controversial and my language quite blunt .
However I do hope that you will publishi this letter , I am sure it represents popular sentiment of majotity of Indians .

Dear Sir
Kindly publish the following in letter to Editor coloumnn.

I am a Fauji . We call a spade a spade .
I must say that I was happy to read news item in your news paper about three youths from stone pelting mob, obstructing anti-militant Operations, being killed in firing by security forces .
The news was welcome. For too long the security forces have been fighting terrorists and militants with their  hands tied behind their back . Due to their inability to deter the local population from obstructing their operations and fear of political backlash in case of injuries / death of even a single civilian casuality..
Chief of the Army Staff had given warnig to all antinational elements of stern action includinf firing against anyone trying to obstruct anti militant or anti terrorist operations .It must be noted by all that the security forces displayed examplry restraint . They first fired teargas shells . When that failed the pellet gin . Firing was resorted to only as a last resort.
It is hoped that the Politicians will not make an issue of this incident for petty political gains and vote bank.  They have already caused immense dagage to the Defence Forces .
