Kerala minister warns action against ‘erring’ officials


Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala’s Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala on Sunday said tough action will be taken against officials found guilty of leaking to media information about a probe into an IT project that has incurred losses. 

Reports surfaced last week that around Rs.2 crore had been wasted over an allegedly flawed IT project.

A senior police officer told police chief T.P. Senkumar that he suspected that the news about a probe into the IT project was leaked to media.

Inspector General of Police Manoj Abraham approached Senkumar against his junior and Superintendent of Police Rahul Nair for allegedly leaking information about the probe to the media, sources in the police said.

Enraged over the development, Chennithala said that irresponsible behavior would not be tolerated in a disciplined force.

“A detailed probe is currently on and it includes not only the IT project, but also if there is any purposeful act on the part of police officials to play truant. We are waiting for the report,” said Chennithala.

“… tough action will be taken against those who have erred,” he added.

The home minister said the IT project was implemented in the 2012-13 fiscal during which he was not the minister.

Last week, Chennithala ordered a Crime Branch probe into the Kerala Police IT project, which was handed over to a now closed Bengaluru-based IT firm. The project has incurred a loss of around Rs.2 crore.

The IT project was part of a police modernization drive for an electronic beat monitoring system in seven districts.

The company failed to complete the job in the stipulated two year duration.

New Delhi, September 25, 2017: The youth wing of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came out to protest against the University and former vice president Hamid Ansari who lately attended an event in Kozhikode held by Delhi Institute of objective studies.
The event was co-organised by National Women’s Front (NWF), the women’s wing of the radical Islamic outfit Popular Front of India to mark the international conference on “the role of women to make a humane society”. It has also been alleged that an Islamic fundamentalist organization, Popular Front of India (PFI) was also part of the organizing committee.
According to the reports, the criminal of radical outfit PFI was accused of cutting the hands of Professor Joseph for being offensive to the Islamic Prophet Mohammad. It has also been accused of accusing National Investigative Agency over controversial ‘Love Jihad’ cases.
The university however claim that they have received letters from certain organizations, though not being part of the event but were collaborating in it.
BJP now demand an apology from the former vice president for attending the event that was organized by the organization who has also been responsible for recruiting youngsters for the Islamic state.
The question arises what prompted the Vice President of India for 10 years to attend an event organized by a radical Islamic people of Popular Front of India?
