Sanjiv Chaturvedi challenges health minister - TOI dt 29/09/2014
Will our hob'ble Health Minister dare to allow Sanjiv reveal the truth?
NEW DELHI: Removed as chief vigilance officer of AIIMS, Sanjiv Chaturvedi, an Indian Forest Service officer, has charged the Union health ministry with presenting facts "contrary" to its own records and said they have cast aspersions on him.
Chaturvedi, who is deputy secretary of AIIMS, said in a letter to health minister Harsh Vardhan that he was not given an opportunity to state his version and "protect his dignity and self-respect".
Vardhan had said on September 24 that there was "nothing mala fide" in the government's decision to "re-profile" Chaturvedi's job. Accusing the ministry of "hiding the truth", Chaturvedi said, "I request that even if an iota of commitment towards transparency and combating corruption is left in the ministry, it should immediately allow the undersigned to bring the truth in public domain." more
we cant expect this govt to be transparent at all. they have given ample proofs of that in their dealings. the biggest being they have purchased all TV channels (directly or indirectly) and no one dares to ask any questions to these ministers. Mr modi has set an example by banning all press representatives and he does not talk to press any more. if he has right intentions he should invite press and promote questions from their side. more
What a shame for Dr Harsh Vardhan, our H'ble Health minister, the nation feels proud FOR your action. I think it is again a record 4 taking action against most honest CVO with AIIMS after assuming power of HM.
Earlier it was Congress doing this short of things.
Dr Harsh Vardhan has surpassed Congress in no time.

One of the most effective way of bringing change is to vote for AAP; it will send shivers down the spine of all conventional politicians, because, in doing so the voter will send a clear signal that they demand accountability , from the political class!! more
Sanjiv Chaturvedi is a victim of misrule. He will never ever get a reprieve from a corrupt system like ours. Apart from elections to elect criminals to power our system of government is not for justice. When we look back into India before 1947 the state of affairs was almost like this. Rajas, Nawabs etc were controlling the wealth of the land which they were indiscrimately splurging it despite they had ceded their independence to the British. When Indians took over the rule the people who had been elevated to power had the same mind set of the feudal system. The British were not chucked out of the country for making India a better place for the majority Indians it was done to rule the people like the Rajas. To change our system our voters must be able to vote beyond caste and communal lines. more
