……………………………………………………………………………………From where people are visiting this site ?.
I am Jayashree J.N, married to an IAS officer M.N.Vijayakumar of Karnataka Cadre who has served in Karnataka for the last 25 years. He is a Principal Secretary Grade officer.I am also directly and indirectly involved with various agencies fighting corruption
If the site appears too personal it is intended to be so. We want the people who want to support us to know very clearly what we are.
My husband , a WHISLEBLOWER, is continuously fighting corrupt practices in the system. As my husband is being harassed for exposing the corrupt practices of the senior officers, and as this harassment is silently watched (or more probably supported) by the head of the bureaucracy,
I also decided to take up his causes independently.To know my husband's style of functioning in using technology for increasing transparency. read this
I started this website to mobilize like minded people across the country to fight against brazen corruption in Karnataka . The Chief Secretary sent a notice to my husband recently to the effect that he should either disown association with this website (created to fight against corruption) or else he should disassociate himself from me- i.e, he should divorce me! Against this obscene and pervert notice I have filed complaint against him with the Karnataka Women's Commission. See my complaint hereI have filed complaint with the Lokayukta against subverting Women Commission's Order directing Government to initiate action against certain officers including the then Chief Secretary Sri.P.B.Mahishi.
In spite of fatal threats faced by my husband and me, we are determined to mobilize like minded people against this total lawlessness in Karnataka. Incidentally Karnataka which has been graded as the fourth most corrupt state in India, now appears to be leading the country in corruption. This alone should tell why the fight against corruption can not be delayed any further. All these have made people of Karnataka to bow their heads in shame before others. Any self-respecting person staying in Karnataka should fight to remove this stigma by supporting honest people who are fighting corruption
I have extensively used RTI Act to expose dereliction of duty by the Chief Secretary in handling corruption issues..
My husband has continued his efforts to attack corruption at the root, without being afraid of the threats he received and harassment meted out to him. From September 2006 to June 2007 my husband has been transferred seven times in the last ten months, each time for reporting serious corrupt practices by senior officers(nothing technical about these transfers: entire purpose of these transfers were to keep my husband from pursuing the corrupt cases he reported. In a few cases he was prevented from functioning to shield the corrupt). He has also informed the Chief Secretary in writing that he would like to watch to what level the corrupt would be protected and then approach the CAT and other Authorities. He Has fIled case against the Chief Secretary for shielding the corrupt. He also hopes to get decisions from appropriate authorities that the requirement of absolute integrity in Service Rules also provide protection to the Whistle Blowers. Due to this, he has not gone to the CAT immediately and there is another major reason which he will be revealing at appropriate time. As long as Government servants with integrity are threatened , there is no way corruption can be contained. He wants public pressure to be built for immediate enactment of the The Public Service Law or at least for immediate enactment of provisions relating to protection of Whistle Blowers .
Recently after he took charge as Regional Commssioner, Bangalore (but was transferred within 20 days after posting) he introduced a system using the provisions of the Right to Information Act in an innovative way, where in public are allowed to see files without making any application between 2.30 pm and 5.30 pm on every second and fourth tuesday of every month. He also planned to make web viewing of the file. These developments threatened many corrupt people and he was transferred just 2 days before the launch of the program . However, his efforts have been widely reported and it is hoped that citizens will demand for its operation.You can visit the related website here. how he fought against corruption in his posting in spite of not having any facilities in the closed Mysore Lamps.. visit here to know what these corrupt officers did including the Chief Secretary and how my husband frustrated their efforts.
Under pressure from corrupt officers in the Commerce and Industries Department he has been shifted again after he submitted a revival plan for Mysore Lamps. But this time to a distant place Belgaum with you a view to finish him off. My husband's continued efforts in fighting corruption inspite of serious threats in Belgaum can be seen here
I have used the Right to Information Act to show how the Chief Secretary deliberately dismantled systems needed to check corruption. To one of my RTI applications ,the Chief Secretary has given reply in writing that corruption is a routine matter for him and he does not keep any information about it!!! The Chief Secretary has total disregard for the statutory authorities, he never cared for the directions issued by the Governor of Karnataka. See my letter to the Governor here for further details. The Chief Secretary threatned my husband in my presence and told my husband to report to the Lokayukta that the Chief Secretary does not take action against the corrupt and that the Chief Secretary shields the corrupt..
Most of the RTI groups and websites address corruption at lower levels. There are hardly any groups dealing with corruption at higher levels. I thought there is a need to provide a platform for any person wishing to fight corruption at high levels and provide assistance based on the rich experience my husband has, in fighting corrupt practices of his senior officers. I am aware of most of them as I have also taken up some of the issues raised by him independently using the RTI Act. This site gives details of his continuous struggle against corruption and also details of what I am doing to fight corruption..
This website has the following main objectives:
To provide a platform for any person who wishes to fight corruption at higher levels and in particular the root of corruption
To provide help to those who have knowledge of corruption but are afraid to take further action. If for any reason, such a person is unwilling to take up the corruption issue, to make arrangements to take up the issues on behalf of such a person.
Create awareness to initiate a movement to demand corruption - free service as a Fundamental Right
To create a network of like minded people to fight corruption at high levels and also proactively join with similar organizations
To share the experiences of using the Right to Information Act in fighting corrupt practices at high level and also provide links to similar actions taken up elsewhere in the country and rest of the world
From the experiences of my husband , to achieve the above, there is an immediate need to do the following to help honest officers to work without being intimidated:
To get a Ruling that the requirement of absolute integrity under the Service Rules already allows Whistle Blowing. In view of this to hasten the enactment of the Public Services Bill
To help to make better provisions for whistle blowers under the Public Services Bill
