Monday Mirchi : Loyalty does not mean compromising on rules

Must read

Administrative heads, in their misplaced enthusiasm to display complete loyalty to political masters, must not compromise on rules. The predicament of some officials embroiled in the  sensational phone tapping case in Telangana is a case in point. The ramifications of the case are worrying some top officials as they could soon be added as accused because of the reported statements of senior police officials booked for snooping under the previous Bharat Rashtra Samithi government.
The investigators are sure that former Special Intelligence Bureau (SIB) chief Prabhakar Rao is the main accused in the case. Presently in the US, Prabhakar Rao, who has evaded arrest, reportedly called one of the investigating officers and told him: “What you are doing in the present government is what we did in the previous government. Why cases on us.” His point was that it was the BRS government that had directed them to tap phones, and they did precisely that. Now that the Congress government is investigating the phone tapping case, officials who had crossed the line previously are running for cover.
