PROA passes resolution against financial commissioner revenue for mistreatment of officers
Punjab revenue officers’ association (PROA) has passed a resolution against financial commissioner revenue (FCR) Anurag Aggarwal, condemning his alleged arrogant and humiliating attitude towards revenue officers.
Gurdev Singh Dham, president of PROA, said that a meeting of executive body of the association was held to discuss various issues, including revengeful attitude and misbehaviour of FCR Anurag Aggarwal towards revenue officers.
“Sukhcharan Singh Channi, Secretary of PROA met FCR to request regarding sanctioning of his ex-India leave to visit his daughter in Canada. But FCR used filthy language and asked him to leave his room. This is not the one and only incident happened with revenue officers who visit him for their service matters. Revenue officers are perturbed and under deep stress with this arrogant attitude and behaviour of highest authority,” he said.
He said that the association is seeking time for a meeting with FCR for discussion and resolution of confronting issues but to no avail.
“Therefore, it is a humble request to revenue minister Brahm Shankar Jimpa to bring this sensitive issue to the notice of chief minister, as well as look into this matter of misbehaviour and non- sanctioning of ex-India leave of revenue officer to avoid any unsavoury situation of harassment,” he said in the resolution.
Having compiled the experiences shared by these eyewitnesses, former head and professor of the department of medieval and modern history, Allahabad University Yogeshwar Tiwari and Prof Tiwari's research scholar Akshat Lal shared the information collated by them which would soon be published in a noted Indian research journal. Then vice-chancellor of the University, Amaranatha Jha, had even presided over all the events which were organised by the University, he shared.
When members of the West Bengal cabinet came to seek Mahatma Gandhi's blessings in Kolkata (then Calcutta) on August 15, 1947, he said they (ministers) now wore a crown of thorns and should remain humble and be forbearing. This has been recorded in a letter that Mahatma Gandhi wrote from Beliaghata, Calcutta, (now Kolkata) to Agatha Harrison (an English industrial welfare reformer and unofficial diplomat) on August 15, 1947.
In a modern nation's collective consciousness, its Independence Day is an uplifting landmark. It is a time for celebration, nostalgia and shared pride. But as the nation matures, it could also be a juncture to take stock of where we are. And even raise uncomfortable questions. Colonial powers pillaged their colonies for their own benefit, the fruits of which they still enjoy. It set back human progress for the natives in more ways than one.
