Why no action against prematurely repatriated UP cadre IAS?
IAS officer Sadakant (UP Id 435, GOI Id 053200, Batch 1983, Cadre UP) presently posted as Principal Secretary of Social Welfare with additional charges of principal secretary of Women Welfare and child development,Principal Secretary of Dr. Ambedkar Gram Sabha of Uttar Pradesh Government, was an accused in cases of anti-national activities, corruption and using graft money for building a Hanuman temple in his home town. But the Mayawati government gave him a prized position of Principal Secretary.
VIDE ORDER no. 20/G/2935-Ad.I dated 20 May 2011 of MHA GOI, the Union Government of India prematurely repatriated Sri Sadakant, and put his services at the disposal of the State Government of Uttar Pradesh for Sadakant’s alleged involvement in all of the above activites.
The IAS officer, repatriated on May 20, 2011, has been given many key positions in the State Government by previous and present Governments without any formal enquiry into the past charges of his alleged involvement in these alleged crimes.
I as an RTI Activist had written to the authorities to institute an enquiry against Sri Sada Kant. I had demanded that pending enquiry, Sadakant be kept on a waiting list so that the state may not suffer from Sada Kant’s anti-national activities, his corruption, and also from his habit of using graft money for religious causes thereby hurting religious sentiments of millions in Uttar pradesh.
All charges leveled against Sada Kant by the Government of India are very serious, and are sure to be detrimental to the state of Uttar pradesh as well.
