Report about karnataka govt secretariat in Vijayakarnataka paper dt 16-2-2012


  1. The office of CM is just a classic example of this rotten state of affairs. Other departments of Secretariat are not far behind. Just go to Chief Secretary’s office down the line, you will find an OSD!. As on Jan 2012 ,there were one joint Secretary, two Deputy Secretaries, Four Under Secretaries, Two Section Officer and Five peon! .I wonder does they have any idea of Public administration!. Even the steno has become indispensable! .There are more officers than peons.Can you beat it.
    It may look funny, But that is the quality of IAS in Karnataka. How do you expect the Administration to be upright? These idiots go on to attend so many training programmes at home and abroad. Yet the Karnataka Government Secretariat
    Sardar Patel had called Civil service as the Steel frame of Administration. But the steel frame is melting (due to heat of pimps who manage to get foot hold in high offices).
    Karnataka has gone to Dogs because vidhana soudha the seat of Power has become a dogshed. But now it is impossible to bring change. Every one has become strongly rooted in their post as well as in ther conviction. Old bureaucrats,Judges, Senior Typist, everyone have developed their spear of influence by twisting the rules and regulations. As I said earlier … is a dogshed. We used to read in the history thst eunuchs in the royal harem used to control state administration. Now that holds good for the Karnataka state Secretariat as well.

  2. The departments in the secretariat function as usual. The funny thing in the Karnataka government is that there is no staff where it is required. Talk offices,D.C offices, Revenue departments ,Agriculture department…. .You go anywhere, they say”sir, what can we do, we do not have staff! Got is recruiting so many people every year, where does the staff go? These bitches and bastards go to vidhana soudha on deputation and stay there for eternity! Particularly this SDA’s. These sluts will never leave Vidhana soudha once they come in!. Some of them even sacrifice their promotion!.
    Well, I agree, the quality of staff in Karnataka government Secretariat is third Rate. Most of the officers are promoted Typists/stenos. But that can improved by better training.
    But alas, The Karnataka Secretariat has a training center which is used only as a dustbin to accommodate unwanted/useless Additional Secretaries.
    Ok, these promoted typist, go up to become Additional Secretaries, some day they might end up becoming Secretaries to Govt(a privilege which is reserved to people of IAS cadre). Now as the quality of IAS is dwindling, these group C promotes want to create the Post of Special Secretary to Government. Some day these Special Secretaries would manage to keep the post of the regular Secretaries vacant and stay “in-charge” of the whole department!.
    Why this happens?. These members of Bureaucracy and Judiciary never retire with Honour. These ass holes always manage to get some Government appointment. With their worn out brain, they need someone to prepare reports which are ultimately signed by them. There, these stenos and clerks come handy. In past the clerks remained intellectually in-charge.Now they want to become physically in charge.
    In Vidhana soudha Officers become Secretaries and Deputy Secretaries when they become old. So they often Lack the zeal to work constructively. They just want to ensure that “somehow work goes on”. The KAS officers (state cadre) who come to Vidhana soudha on deputation, either want to make money or they want to stay in bangalore.They too lack interest in Administration. So they rely heavily on stenos and typists. These stenos and typists monopolize the offices. In the secretariats the longer you stay the stronger you become! The stupid Secretaries and Deputy Secretaries won’t let them go and those people too won’t go because lack of knowledge and the creation of Comfort zones hold them back from exploring new horizons. So these typists and stenos somehow manage to hold on to powerful offices. Even when they get promotion, they upgrade their posts and stay in the same office doing the same works. Govt pays higher wage for the same work!.Who cares? It is the Taxpayers who ultimately bears the burden!

  3. Whenever there is a mistake in the village, taluk or District level Administration people look toward higher authority i.e state level administration to rectify their problems. But in Karnataka state the Administration setup in the power centre has become completely useless.
    The Karnataka Government Secretariat operates from “Vidhana Soudha” a magnificent stone building which gives a good impression about the government. Little do the people know that behind this magnificent stone wall lies an outdated and faulty machinery which can only slow down, not speed up the development work.
    However, as the media’s have becoming ever vigilant, skeletons have started to tumble out of the cupboard. It has revealed the real faces of people who want us to stop using Face book. These people talk against facebok, but enjoy Porn themselves. It is same with all the bastards who speak about morality. Mr.Nehru Olekar the president of the committee which was appointed to investigate the Karnataka Assembly porngate scandal revealed that 10 more legislators too watched those clips.
    Few days back another daily revealed Tax payer has to spend 80 lakhs per month to pay off the wages of the wages of people working at Chief Minister’s office. Many people defended it by saying the CM need so many people because he has to manage 16 portfolios. The truth is that all these 16 departments have got Secretaries, Deputy Secretaries, Under Secretaries, Section officers and other staffs. CM need not add to this army of professionals by bringing in bus conductors, semi-politicians, teachers, second division clerks and last not the least…… pimps!. Well I don’t know about CM, but I have noticed that some personal establishments have started keeping pimps too. Well, they are called ‘officers on special Duty!’ There job is to carry an iPod and roam around Secretaries/Ministers just like cheap whores roam around majestic with Mobile phones!
