The media reports ( WIC, TOI, Business Standard dt July 29,2016) regarding IRS officers Association's Resolution protesting Deptt of Revenue's (DOR) alleged interference into their day-to-day functioning ,is a serious indictment of government’s functioning. 

The following anomalies need immediate attention  :- 

(a) Have pay parity among different organised services; 

(b) Why should the IAS have an edge over other services at every stage ; Discriminatory, unjust and unfair. Causes heart-burnings.

(c) Why should DOR be headed by an IAS officer. Functional expertise of  the specialized cadre of IRS officers  must be recognized;

(d)The IRS officers blame DOR for fixing unrealistic targets for revenue collection and then reprimand them for failure to achieve the same; Secretary(Revenue ) must share the blame instead of passing on the buck to IRS officers. Unethical.

(e)DOR calls IRS association’s remonstrance as an act of insubordination. A high-handed approach to please the political masters.

(f) Why can’t MHA be headed by an IPS officer; Financial Services by a professional banker; DPE by a turn-around professional from public sector, Revenue Secretary should be an IRS officer and so on. Why allow these sinecures to be monopolized by one Service, alone ?

No wonder, the situation could reach a flashpoint, once other disgruntled  Services jump into the fray. Successive governments at the Centre have been busy cultivating their favourites instead of addressing the genuine concerns of organized Services. There is a simmering discontentment in all Services that might adversely impact GOI’s image.

One trusts, PM Modi does not go the same way.He must take the call and rein in the elite service. Blind reliance on one set of civil servants, is detrimental to Good governance.

It is unfair to question news-censoring and internet-blocking in Kashmir.

Why are State/Central governments handling the issue with kid gloves and so much circumspection ?

Why not admit that news-blocking and internet snapping,were professional decisions taken on security considerations.

What else one would do against the ISI-backed stone-pelters, waving Pak-ISIS flags, chanting anti-national slogans and firing from behind ?

This was no time for mollycoddling the radicalised youth.

The Kashmir and the National media, instead of writing obnoxious editorials (as if influenced by ISI) must do a reality check before penning the editorials.

Several activists and intellectuals, some masquerading as Journalists, are behaving like Pakistani apologists and terrorists' sympathisers.

Surely,not for free. There is a price tag for such services-providers.

Arun Jaitley, as former I&B minister damaged PM Modi's image by mollycoddling pro-Pak indian journos.

Strangely, even PM Modi never bothered to pursue " Radia tapes " controversy, ostensibly under guidance of Arun Jaitley,who took pride in launching Rajdeep Sardesai's book in presence of P Chidambaram.

What happened to twenty indian journalists admittedly bribed by AgustaWestland scamsters for keeping their mouths and eyes shut.

Why is Modi sarkar keeping quiet ?
