One more life lost to corruption
This news makes me feel sad. Manjunath, an IIM graduate and an IOC official was killed recently. His fault? He stood up against corruption. He ordered closing down of a petrol pump (petrol/gas station) on charges of adultration. So he just performed his duties honestly. But the petrol pump owners seem to work in a mafia-like fashion, and a honest officer to inspect the pumps is certainly not liked by them:
This is so similar to the Satyendra Dube murder, when an honest officer on National Highway project (and an IIT graduate) who exposed the rampant corruption in the prestigious highway project was killed, exactly two years ago:
To add insult to the injury, the real culprits in the Dubey case are not brought to book, nor do we hear of any action been taken on the issues raised by Dubey.
The positive thing is that even after Dubey was killed, there was Manjunath, and there still are many more like them who continue to work honestly!
And I am sure they are, because without their presence things would not be half as good as they are.
And India bashers (mostly Indians themselves), please don’t insult these two noble souls (and others) by starting the usual rhetoric of corruption and India not respecting its talent and blah blah. Atleast respect their sacrifice!
