Reinstate Mr Rajkumar Khatri as BDA commissioner

This petition had 102 supporters

Mr Rajkumar Khatri, an IAS officer was posted for highly responsible and demanding position of Commissioner for Bengaluru Developmemt Authority ( BDA) in June 2016. He holds MBBS and then MBA Degree in Public Services. Rarely I have seen such highly educated and multifaceted education background as IAS officers. It was a blessing for Bengalooreans. 

He started various initiatives to improve civic amneties in the city by fast tracking many projects languishing for ages. E.g flyovers, peripberal ring road etc. We could see things changing on the ground and changing our li es for the  better.

He was working towards ending corruption in BDA, one of the most corrupt governmemt organisation of the state of Karnataka. He brought discipline by not allowing middlemen, contractors etc loitering arond officers and even breaking the nexus of their corrupt practise.

I had chance to meet Mr Khatri in person to expedite long pending doddanekundi flyover. He patiently heard us and took immediate constructive  steps by making sure the officials, contractors and citizen group work together. It has been successful arrangement. That instance potrayed his leadership, sensitivity to public concerns and a scientific  approach to resolve issues.

Now, this citizen friendly and efficient officer is abruptly transferred and new commissioner is appointed immediately. We see government taking swift action for such efficient officers...You can google for absurd reasons provided.

This  has been the saga of governments to transfer, abuse, demoralise and vindicate honest, efficient and non corrupt officers by either transferring them frequently or through some other means. We as responsible citizens have to support good officers, rare species that on path of extinction.

Through this petition, on behalf of citzen action groups of bengaluru,  I  would  request   honourable chief minister Siddramayya to bring back Mr Rajkumar Khatri back as our commissioner and also let the citizens know the actual reasons for transfer backed with data.
