when Rome was burning....

We all have heard this proverb "Nero was fiddling while rome was burning". In karnataka Natural resources are being looted, Thugs are beating up girls in front of Camera.Still everybody show fingers at BJP government only. There must be some officials who must be looking over the day to day administration of the state..I dont know what these bureaucrats are doing. Administrative machinery is dead. No body knows that there is a CEO in Karnataka Govermnment who looks after all this. He is called The Chief Secretary. Presently this post is held by a man called S.V.Ranganath..
These days the happenings in the state of Karnataka is quite disturbing. Officials are working hand in glove with Corrupt politician. Not that Mr S.V Ranganath is different. The government appointed him to this post by  overlooking the seniority of many other IAS officers thanks to his political bosses. Eversince he has asumed the charge he is following the policy of Masterly inactivity. The happenings in this state makes us believe that he is a misfit to his post. But he seems too shrewd. When culture-vultures attacked girls when they were having a birthday party at their home Mr S.V Ranganath directed his officials to harass the victims rather than arresting the culprits. His officials are busy investigating whether the house in which party is going on has got license to run the homestay or whether they have got proper water connection,electricity connection etc. All is being done on the pretext of Morality. If he is such a moral freak then why he is always accompanied by a Pimp who used to supply women to one of his predecessor. Does the office of  the Chief Secretary has got the license to employ an official Pimp?.Why should the tax payers of the state should bear the burden of the salary of those people who cater to the "SPECIAL" needs of this office?
He could not take care of his own officials.When  Tourists beats up and killed assistant conservator of forests (ACF) in Karwar he was silent. This may not be true when it comes to protecting corrupt officials who are raided by Lokyukta. When Syed Jameer Pasha was raided by  Lokayukta  the government decided not to press charges. Many executives in Karnataka joined hand with  Mining Mafia and made crores of rupees. He never advised them to gaurd the interest of the state. His silence encouraged corrupt officials. He remained silent spectator all the way.People say he is a clean person. Yes he is a clean hand. A clean mind free of any concern for the state.It is ture that he is a very soft person who cannot talk tough to his political bosses. He may be having some domestic problems tool. If he is hapless then he could at least go on central deputation and clear the stage for a efficient officer.

Yeddyurappa involved in multi-crore land scam

Bangalore: Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa is in trouble for his alleged involvement in a multi-crore land scam in the state. Documents exclusively accessed by CNN-IBN show that Yeddyurappa bent every rule in the book, only to ensure allotment of land for his sons and other family members.
In this season of scams, Yeddyurappa's land deals could dwarf the ones like Adarsh Cooperative Housing Society scam.
Yeddyurappa's eldest son and a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP, BY Raghavendra, is the biggest beneficiary in the land-for-family-scheme playing out in Karnataka. The scam is embarrassing for the BJP which is targeting the Congress on a range of corruption issues from Commonwealth Games to 2G spectrum to Adarsh.
Over 2000 pages of documents now in the public domain show that Raghavendra and his younger brother Vijayendra got huge favours after their father became Karnataka deputy chief minister in 2006. Going by market rate the brothers are now sitting on land worth Rs 500 crore.
Raghavendra got a Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) plot in the posh RMV extension in Bangalore after he was elected to the Lok Sabha in 2009 under the MP's quota. He paid just Rs 10 lakh but the market value now is over Rs 2 crore.
However, Raghavendra finds nothing wrong in the land deal.
"There is a tradition in all states that elected representatives get land. I too got it. No rule was flouted," says Raghavendra.
BDA rules say if Raghavendra or his family own property in Bangalore then he is not eligible. But documents with CNN-IBN clearly show that Raghavendra has lied in an affidavit saying he owns no other property in Bangalore. He forgot that he already owns a mansion at Manyata in Bangalore.
In another case Yeddyurappa denotified land acquired by the BDA in KR Puram to favour his sons and son-in-law Sohan Kumar. The Chief Minister has a strange argument when asked about his love for land and his sons.
"If we went by BDA rules, we should be taking back all the sites given away to people in this state," he says.
Yeddyurappa is also accused of favouring his daughter Umadevi in setting up a BPO. She got two acres of land on the outskirts of Bangalore.
"My daughter is eligible. She got a barren land 50 KM from Bangalore. No rule was flouted," he says.
There are also allegations of the family members getting over 5 acres of land in their home town Shimoga for a hospital and 2 acres for a factory in Bangalore.
Another 11 acres denotified in favour of his sons in March this year are now worth Rs 181 crore. Interestingly, most of these revelations are coming from Janata Dal (Secular) leader HD Kumaraswamy, who was the chief minister when Yeddyurappa was his deputy.
"They have violated every rule. I will raise it in Parliament. What is their high command in Delhi doing?" asks Kumaraswamy.
Yedyurrapa has also released documents against Kumaraswamy and Congress leaders. But a scam involving a serving chief minister clearly makes for more drama.
Interestingly, every time the BDA or the Urban Development Department advised against denotification of some land because it was against the law, Yeddyurappa immediately called for the file to his office. Order after order by Yeddyurappa's secretary gave only one direction to the Urban Development Department - 'please just post the file to the CM's office'.
So the message is very clear. It is perhaps better to marry someone in the chief minister's family to get a site allotted easily.

K P S C Scandals

Who are the most Dangerous Enemies of Karnataka youth?
You may say Drug peddlers...
wrong!, try again,
wrong...try again...
terrorists who mislead youths to join violent extremist movements like Naxalism....

wrong, wrong ,wrong....
Guys,you got it all wrong
The right answer is K P S C.
Karnataka Public Service Commission.
This is one institutions wholy dedicated to cheat the young men and women of Karnataka.
For that they get commission from anti national elements or what?...your never know...
but they ensure only corrupt people get selected to Public service!
Oh,man....this is all old stuff..... They have come a long way after the Rameshwarappa scandal but they never Improve. They always come up with an innovative idea.
What they did this time?
In the exam that held on June 2010 they held a fake exam for the selection of  KAS(Probetioners).
Little did the candidates knew that the exam was already fixed!
The paper in one subject would be kept so easy that any person who take exam in that subject get selected and they would eliminate the threat of Competition in the second rounds. So most of the people who just gave exams without good preparation to get selected.Then in the second round they would give way to a few "match fixed" candidates. This will give an opportunity for KPSC members to call the shots. They will just maximise the profits.
I don't know how and in what proportion these KPSC people share the money.(who take that much).Do they pay Ministers and KAT members too?...Question...Questions...and More questions.
But the sophisticated way which they are fallowing will even put the most hardend criminal to shame.
These KPSC member are looting Public Money as well. They use Toyota Corolla. why? Do you think visiting remote areas in karnataka is a part of their Job profile. No not at all. They are just having fun at the expense of the tax payers of Karnataka. They won't settle to a Ambassador. They need Corolla. a 16 lakh vehicle. They will say that the govt gave it to them. False.I know they have written so many letters to govt asking for it. They want the govt to pay their rent even though some of them use their own house. Phone free...internet free...Do you think any of these old @7$ hos knows how to use internet?.
This Gang of Eight are pure shit!
We here at Manasa Gangotri are forming a task force to Nail these Bastards.
We in touch with all universities in Karnataka  to form a think tanks and we are coordinating their action.
we have suffered a great loss as a former VC of Mysore University was involed in Nepotism and recurited many people ignoring recruitment Rules. He is roaming scot free.  As this is not enough, This year KPSC members cheated us. KAT (Karnataka Administrative Tribunal is also turning a blind eye to the neferious activity of the KPSC. I don't know what they are going to do next. We are sure they wont do scaling neither they will do Re exams. Because they are not interested in getting Justice to Candidates.Because doing injustice is their original plan. This not the first time they have indulged in such cheating. The former Chairmen introduced a "matrimony scheme wherein he took money from parties and acted as a broker. I just saw a "Gazetted couple" who are the product of this "Job for marriage" scheme. A six foot fair guy was married of to a three foot dark lady. both are very cute but the mis match is evident.(I am starting a new chapter to expose that scam).
I urge my friends to get as many info about the shaddy activities of KPSC using RTI.

Treasure Island Inc

In August last year, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was keynote speaker at the annual meeting of India’s premier anti-corruption agency, the CBI. There, addressing officers of the agency and state vigilance bureaus, he made a telling remark, “Our anti-corruption agencies must make the cost of corruption unacceptably high for those indulging in this evil practice.”
The prime minister’s advice was well received. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for a key ministry under his charge—the ministry of personnel. Not only has it failed to take action against corrupt bureaucrats, it has also failed to push for the ratification of a key United Nations convention against graft that would make it easier for the government to punish errant officials.
Instead, information gleaned by Outlook using the Right to Information Act shows that scores of officers from the IAS, IPS and other key services continue to get promoted, posted to sensitive positions and enjoy the benefits of power despite being chargesheeted by several anti-corruption agencies. Needless to say, this is in complete contravention of the service rules framed by the ministry of personnel and the Union home ministry.
Mahesh Kumar Gupta, a 1987 batch IAS officer from the UP cadre, is a classic case on how to bend service rules to get ahead. On September 9, 2008, the CBI filed a chargesheet against Gupta in a recruitment scam that had taken place nearly 10 years ago. The chargesheet, a significant document in the prosecution of a criminal, serves as proof that the investigating agency (such as the CBI) has found enough evidence during the investigation to prosecute the accused. The case goes back to 1998 when Gupta, as the head of a recruitment committee, allegedly called up the shortlisted candidates and took bribes to recruit them.


Gupta is part of a long tradition in UP, where officers voted “most corrupt” have ended up as chief secretaries.

The ministry of personnel, the nodal agency for all IAS officers, is very clear on how to deal with such officers. In a letter-cum-memorandum issued on March 28, 2000 (No. 20011/4/92-AISII), the ministry categorically pointed out to chief secretaries of all states that such officers could not be promoted till the inquiry against them was over. In fact, a much older office memorandum of the Union home ministry is also categorical that “secretaries to ministries and heads of departments have the duty of locating and suitably dealing with corrupt officials”. So, it suggested that “public servants of doubtful integrity” be identified, their names enclosed in an “agreed list” and never be posted to sensitive positions. But Gupta managed to circumvent the law on both counts. Not only was he consistently promoted during the years the case was being investigated by various agencies, he also rose to become the state’s home secretary, a department dealing with law and order as well as the careers of the very police officers who are investigating him! As home secretary, Gupta deals with the files of all police officers from the UP cadre, and has a major say in all issues related to crime and law and order in the state. Ideally, his promotion should have been kept on hold. Instead, Gupta served as the district magistrate of Gorakhpur and Agra and other important posts till his current plum posting.
But Gupta is part of a long tradition in UP which has seen the likes of IAS officers such as Neera Yadav and A.P. Singh—voted as the “most corrupt” by the UP IAS officer’s association themselves—being promoted as chief secretaries.
In the neighbouring state of Haryana, Anand Mohan Sharan, a 1990 batch officer, was charged by the CBI in two cases for a dda land allotment scam in 2004 and 2005. But Sharan, instead of cooling his heels, continued to land plum posts. Till recently, he held dual charges including the lucrative assignment of transport commissioner of Haryana while also serving as the state’s additional resident commissioner in Delhi. The ministry of personnel or the Union home ministry could have ensured that Sharan never served in sensitive posts which could prove lucrative for corrupt officers. Instead, Sharan continues to be in service while the case meanders on.
Similarly, Rajesh Kumar Srivastav, an additional commissioner of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi and an IAS officer of the 1984 batch, has 10 FIRs filed against him by the CBI. Srivastav was the registrar of societies when a major cooperative housing scam surfaced in Delhi. Ideally, Srivastav should have been sidelined. Instead, despite being chargesheeted in all 10 cases between 2006 and 2009, Srivastav continues to be promoted and posted in sensitive positions. After 2001, when the alleged crime took place, Srivastav has served as a chief electoral officer and in the departments of finance and social justice. He has also been a member of the state commission for the protection of child rights and is now the additional commissioner.
The tale is not too different in the South. Nagambika Devi and Mahendra Jain, two IAS officers of the Karnataka cadre, should have been shunned years ago. While Nagambika was accused of misappropriating funds while serving as chief executive officer of the Uttara Kannada Zilla Panchayat and chargesheeted in October 2004, she continued to get her promotions on time. Currently, as commissioner, higher education, she has a major role in the sector.

If At First You Don’t Succeed...

*DA is disproportionate assets case

Mahendra Jain is currently on central deputation to the commerce ministry. The Karnataka Lokayukta charged him in January 2009 with causing huge losses to the state exchequer when he was MD of Mysore Minerals, a state-owned company, between 2006-08. Jain was earlier private secretary to Deve Gowda when he was the prime minister. But unfazed by these charges, the ministry of personnel cleared his posting as a joint secretary-level officer under the Union commerce ministry, serving as the nodal officer for the special economic zone in Navi Mumbai.
In Andhra Pradesh, L.V. Subramanyam, a 1983 batch officer, has been accused of cheating and criminal conspiracy in his capacity as vice-chairman of the apiic, a state government-promoted infrastructure company. But despite a CBI case being registered on August 30, 2000, Subramanyam has risen effortlessly to become the state’s principal secretary, health.

Many senior IPS officers lead an equally charmed life. The Karnataka Lokayukta conducted several raids on the residences of Hemanth Nimbalkar, a young 1998 batch IPS man, in Belgaum, Kolhapur and Mumbai in March 2009. He was accused of amassing wealth disproportionate to his known sources of income, running into crores. Suspended in May 2009 when he was attached to the anti-terror cell, he was recently reinstated as SP, intelligence. Jija Harisingh, a 1975 batch IPS officer, was charged by the state’s Lokayukta in January 2009 for causing losses running into several hundred crores to the state-owned Mysore Minerals during her tenure between 2004-06. But Jija is now a director-general of police rank officer even while the case is in the Karnataka High Court.
These are but a few of the hundreds of names of senior IAS and IPS officials who have been accused, in some cases even chargesheeted, but continue to serve in key positions, dealing with thousands of crores of rupees in public funds and affecting policy-making decisions that impact the lives of millions of ordinary citizens.


Forget ratifying the UNCAC, the UPA regime has ended up diluting laws such as the Prevention of Corruption Act.

So what is to be done now? Well, ratifying the United Nations Convention Against Crime (UNCAC) would have made it mandatory for India to weed out corrupt bureaucrats. By accepting UNCAC’s binding provisions, the Manmohan Singh-led UPA government would have automatically got access to sensitive information such as details of bank accounts in Swiss banks, would have been able to extradite criminals and prevent money laundering. Instead, India has shied away from ratifying it for four years even after SAARC countries like Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have done so. Worse, instead of toughening up anti-corruption laws—a mandatory requirement for ratifying the convention—the UPA government has actually ended up diluting laws such as the Prevention of Corruption Act. It’s all well to comment about making the price of corruption “unacceptably high”, but it’s of no use when a key ministry, like personnel, which is directly under Dr Manmohan Singh, is so unhelpful. Unfortunately, rhetoric was all the PM could offer. This has ensured that the corrupt continue to prosper in India, currently ranked 84th—below Ghana, Trinidad and Tobago and Swaziland—in the list of most corrupt countries by Transparency International.

Jharkhand Public service Commission Scam

anchi, June 4,2010: The vigilance bureau today filed its first report on the alleged illegal appointments by Jharkhand Public Service Commission (JPSC).
Sources said the vigilance bureau report on alleged irregularities committed by the state public service commission in conducting examinations to fill up posts of university lecturers and deputy collectors in 2006 was submitted to the state cabinet committee on vigilance by director general of police Neyaz Ahmed.
Incidentally Ahmed, besides being the state DGP, holds additional charge of the vigilance bureau as its director general.
The DGP pointed out that investigations into the irregular appointments scam were underway and that given the wide range of operations, more investigation was required.
However, insiders said today's report was the first of the many supplementary reports that would be submitted by the vigilance bureau to the state.
They added that the report contained the broad details of the case, the modus operandi pursued by JPSC chief Dilip Prasad and members to get their friends and relatives and family members appointed to various state government posts. 

Ranchi, June 9, 2010: Governor M..H. Farook today ordered the state Vigilance Bureau to lodge an FIR against the chairman and three former members of the Jharkhand Public Service Commission (JPSC) for "acts of grave irregularities, forgery, interpolation and fraud" in conducting the second civil services examinations of 2007-08.
The governor also ordered the withdrawal of 19 officials from the field and attaching them to the state personnel department till a final decision was taken on replies filed by them. The bureau has made out a prima facie case of fraud and forgery against them.
The personnel department has also been asked to serve showcause notices on the 19, directing them to explain why their services should not be terminated for "indulging in manipulations and interpolations".
The former BDO of Dalbhumgarh, Prashant Kumar Layek, who was abducted and subsequently freed by the Maoists, is among the 19 officers facing the heat of the governor's crackdown.
The others are Radha Prem Kishore, Vinod Ram, Harishankar Barik, Harihar Singh Munda, Ravi Kumar Kujur, Mukesh Kumar Mahto, Kundan Kumar Singh, Mausmi Nagesh, Kanu Ram Nag, Manoj Nath Shahdeo, Prakash Kumar, Kumari Geetanjali, Sangeeta Kumari, Rajneesh Kumar, Shivendra, Santosh Kumar Chaudhary, Kumar Shailendra and Hari Oraon.
They are said to be relatives and friends of various JPSC members, senior bureaucrats and politicians.
The personnel department has been asked to prepare a chargesheet listing the evidence against the 19 and serve the same to the candidates who have been identified in course of ongoing probe.
The former JPSC members, who face FIRs are Gopal Prasad Singh, Shanti Devi and Radha Govind Nagesh, besides chairman Dilip Prasad. They were at the helm of affairs during 2007-08 when the second civil service examinations were held.
According to Raj Bhavan spokesperson Shyamanand Jha, the governor has also ordered vigilance to constitute a special team and complete the probe within three months. It has been authorised to recruit retired CBI and police officers.
Farook's predecessor K. Sankaranarayanan had asked the Vigilance Bureau to probe charges of nepotism and favouritism against the JPSC chairman and members following a series of complaints.
The Vigilance Bureau has also been asked to complete the investigation into the assets and properties of the then chairman and members of the commission. The governor had sought an enquiry into other examinations, including lecturer, marketing supervisors and cooperative examinations conducted by JPSC.
JPSC chairman Dilip Prasad was suspended following a reference to the Supreme Court to initiate a probe against him.
Earlier, DGP Neyaz Ahmad, who also happens to be in charge of the Vigilance Bureau, submitted a report on June 4 and also recommended a CBI probe into the recruitment scam.
According to sources, the bureau investigated records of 37 of the 172 recruited officials and found 19 of them prima facie guilty.
Chief Secretary A.K. Singh, in his proposal, however, said the CBI probe was not necessary at this stage and that the bureau should itself complete the investigation.

Indian women’s hockey Scandal

New Delhi, Wednesday, July 21, 2010: Indian women’s hockey coach M K Kaushik today resigned from his post in the wake of the sex scandal that has rocked Indian hockey.
Hockey India Secretary General Narinder Batra told reporters here that Kaushik has submitted his resignation to interim president Vidya Stokes.
“Kaushik has submitted his resignation to Hockey India Interim President Vidya Stokes. The president will take a decision,” Batra said after a hearing of the player who made the sexual harassment charges, the coaching staff and women’s hockey officials.
Kaushik will not be part of the team for the Asian Champions Trophy in Korea from July 27 pending an inquiry into the sex scandal by a four-member panel comprising Rajiv Mehta (chairman), former players Zafar Iqbal and Ajit Pal Singh and Sudharsan Pathak.
