We always listen about the arbitrary acts of government officials, here is one from Prosecution Department.
A monthly meetibg of senior officers is organized in Gomtinagar, Lucknow based headquarters of the Prosecution Department where Additional Directors of all Commissionary and Prosecution officers of a dozen of Lucknow based offices like CBCID, Vigilance, GRP, EOW, DGP office etc participate.
But recently R N Singh, ADG, Prosecution fixed this meeting in Allahabad instead of Lucknow because as per departmental sources, he wanted to attend the Magh Mela in Allahabad.
The then IG, Prosecution Amitabh Thakur objected to this as being a direct misuse of government money because all officers will go to Allahabad from Lucknow and other parts of UP merely for the meeting which is meaningless but R N Singh ignored this prudent advice, and held the meeting at Allahabad.
Now, I have written to the Chief Minister asking for getting the matter enquired and to make the responsible officer pay through his pocket for all the Travelling Allowances etc that got incurred in this process.
