    when the whole country is currupt will it make any diffrence? In a country where people think that they can washout all sins by appeasing Gods with illeagaly earned money there is no salvation. Only total “PRALAYA” is the solution for our country

  2. Sagar Sahoo says:

    In reply to visuiyer,
    If you are not getting comfortable infrastructure and congenial working atmosphere, then just leave the job & work there where such facilities are available. But dont cheat the govt as well as nation. This case should be seriously taken.

  3. Kumar Rao Rokkam says:

    Good step. Such actions should be conducted regularly and outcome of action should be published on daily news papers with the names of corrupted officers/staff of Govt Deptts ( Revenue, transport, municiple offices etc.)

    I’m sorry..!!
    The officials accepting bribe should not be arrested.. they should be excused..!!

    As we all know that Govt is not providing the comfortable infrastructure and congenial working atmosphere..!!

    How the public servant will meet the expenses on daily office routine..? when the comfortable working culture is created for them?

    However, the officers should also restrict their boundary of greediness.!!

  5. ADV.PRAKASH says:

    REALY VERY LITTLE STEP., COMPULSORY PERIODICALY SEARCH PROCEEDINGS SHOULD BE DONE AT TOP LEVEL GOVERMENT OFFICIALS

  6. A Banerjee says:

    Too small a fry for CBI to bother leaving the line of control under which he was functioning and the bosses he was feeding-right to the top. Whenever these actions are done as stand alone operations, the effect is to warn the bosses in the loop.
