An englishman from Varanasi has a message for PM Modi: leave my city alone

Recommended Posts


Christopher Burchett, a 67-year-old doughty Englishman who has been living in Varanasi since 1970 and now knows its history, culture, lanes and by-lanes better than many Banarsi babus - has a pretty straight-forward message for its VVIP MP: leave Varanasi alone.

“Trying to turn Varanasi into Kyoto is an exercise in futility”, Burchett told Firstpost. This even as Varanasi Mayor Ram Gopal Mohle, District Magistrate Pranjal Yadav, Municipal Commissioner Umakant Tripathi and a host of state and central government officials returned from a week-long tour of the Japanese model heritage city Modi wants to transform Varanasi into.Read more at;

      As reported at www.indopia.in on 2 March 2009
      New Delhi, Mar 2 (PTI) Leaves availed during the service period are not personal and private matter of the employee and should be disclosed under the RTI Act, the CIC has held.
      "Leave taken by an employee from a public authority is a matter of exercise of the discretion vested in the public authority to grant such leave. There can be no bar on the disclosure of an information which is about how the public authority exercises its powers to grant leave to its employee,"the CIC said in its ruling.
      Information Commissioner A N Tiwari was hearing the plea of one Raj Kumar who sought information about the leave account of an employee of the New India Assurance Company Limited.
      The insurance company had rejected the application on the grounds that it was personal information of the employee, a third party, and could not be disclosed.
      "It cannot be said to be a personal or a private matter of that employee,"Tiwari said directing the insurance company to disclose the information within two weeks of the receipt of the order.

      My Boss is harassing me by many ways
      like not sanctioning of leave, incorrect pay fixation on revision of pay due to latest sixth CPC , using office machinery for personal use, like that
      My superiors at other station also helps him, may be because of some fear or do not wish to interfere in any other activities which are not framed.
