Amid the corrupt governments, and the corrupt bureaucracy, we find only a few gems.
One of those is Durga Shakti Nagpal, a 28 year old IAS Officer, who took on the Sand Mafias in Noida region of Uttar Pradesh.
An honest officer, who was only doing her job, and working on Supreme Court directives that all illegal structures be demolished, whether they are offices, houses or places of worship, she is being targeted for just doing her job.
The UP Akhilesh Yadav government has suspended her for taking action against illegal activities, on the pretext that it would have incited communal violence to take down an 'illegal' wall of the mosque. However, even the local police officers say that they had no idea that any tension was brewing up, and they didn't notice any communal tinge or even a hint of violence coming up.
So why are the Ashok Khemkas and the Durga Nagpals, the honest officers of the bureaucracy who do their job well targeted.
Over 297 vehicles carrying illegal truckloads of material and over 80 lakhs was collected in fines.
Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh if you were to speak once in your life, speak up for Durga Nagpal. A humble request.
