(Video) Rajya Sabha TV (RSTV) The Big Picture: Operation Clean up

Topic: Operation Clean up

Guest:

  • Sushil Chandra Tripathi, (Former Principal Secretary, Finance, Uttar Pradesh)
  • Shekhar Iyer, (Senior Journalist)
  • A.K. Bhattacharya, (Editorial Director, Business Standard)

Topic Description:

In the run-up to the 2019 general election, unlike in 2014, the issue of corruption took a back seat; it was overshadowed by the issue of national security. But over the last few months several steps were taken to clean up the system. In the beginning of June, the government dismissed from service 12 senior income tax officers, including one of the rank of joint commissioner, on charges of corruption and professional misconduct. A week later twelve Indian Revenue Service (IRS) officers belonging to the income tax (I-T) department were dismissed on charges of corruption. Meanwhile, the Yogi Adityanath government cracked the whip on 600 government officials of which 200 were forced to go on voluntary retirement and 400 others got strict punitive action in the form of adverse entries in a confidential report. This was the biggest ever action against corruption by any state government.
