For a change....applause...

P Manivannan, an IAS officer in Karnataka is allowing the public to watch what he is doing in his office by hooking up the CCTV in his chamber to his official website. Manivannan, the MD of the Bengaluru Electric Supply Company, BESCOM, has installed two IP enabled cameras in his office, and the public can see whatever happens there.

In this scam age, with his own Karnataka CM involved in one, this act has won great appreciation from the anti-corruption activists.

Cynics say this allows corruption outside the office. They should realize that they themselves can check that, and prevent it. This is a step in the right direction.

"Adarsh" would have been Adarsh, if we had the cameras installed. Unless of course, some folks changed the camera direction to suit themselves.

There still are honest officers. But how long will he be allowed to remain in the seat here is a question.

Applause for such few rays of light in the pitch dark corrupted system! Mr. CM come out of your family business of gifting lands to each other and learn atleast something from your subordinates.

Yaa..This is a commendable step. But one must also think what has led things to such a situation.

Sir, we have enough Agencies (CID, CBI, IB etc. etc. etc. etc.) to watch and very recently CCTV. But the main problem remains : Who will act if found something wrong ?


Anyway, Sir I am reading "Change-India" regularly but unable to make any comments due to some technical problem since long.
