Re: [IAC#RG] COMPLAINT : Rampant corruption in Transport Department of GNCTD

India Against Corruption is not going to report anything of the sort
and pander to their "mai-baap" culture by begging for a few crumbs
thrown from their high table.

Neither shall we be distracted. We have a clear case here where the
senior-most officers of the Transport Department have brazenly
organised systematic and corrupt breaking of the law over a
considerable period to enrich themselves in crores within a short
period of time.

Let this government investigate and explain the reasons why thousands
of offenders were prosecuted and let off by "compounding" offences at
a paltry Rs. 100 when the Delhi Traffic Police prosecutes the
identical offence at Rs. 5,000 as NON-COMPOUNDABLE punishable through
the courts.

This IAS lady, whatever her name is, is in charge of both the people
authorised to prosecute this offence and we shall see how far this
corruption extends to. IAC has just read a large dossier of a third
party involving this IAS lady when she was a Joint-Secretary in
Ministry of Non-Renewable Energy ("MNRE") and it was pretty clear why
she had to leave from there in a tearing hurry.
