IAS Officers’ Association condemns'
The IAS Officers’ Association has condemned the alleged threatening of Krishna District Collector Babu.A. by the leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Assembly Y.S.Jagan Mohan Reddy. The association met under the chairmanship of A.K.Parida at the interim Secretariat on Wednesday and decided to take up the matter with the Chief Minister. Parida said that the Association has taken a serious note of the Mullapadu incident. It was not correct on the part of Jagan Mohan Reddy to threaten the officials who were working for the State. ‘The way Jagan behaved with the District Collector was not proper. How can he tell an IAS officer that he would send to jail?, he asked. Both officers and people’s representatives should respect each other and officials are important part of democratic set-up and belittling them is not good for the system. It would send wrong signals to the people, he said.
