New Delhi, Sep 27: The Supreme Court on Monday said that the police officers, who cosy up with the government of the day and also make money through wrong channels, face payback after the change in the government.

A bench, headed by Chief Justice N.V. Ramana, orally observed that policemen, falling in this category, must not protected and they should be jailed.

It told counsel of a suspended IPS officer that his client cannot take protection from arrest in every case, and pointed out that things take a wrong turn when people start extracting money as they were close to the government.

“This is what happens if you’re close with the government and do these things. You have to pay back one day,” said the bench. Initially, the bench noted that it was not inclined to grant interim protection from arrest to the official facing extortion charges.

The top court was hearing a plea by suspended IPS officer Gurjinder Pal Singh, who had earlier moved the top court seeking protection in a case of disproportionate assets and sedition filed by the Chhattisgarh government.

The bench, also comprising Justices Surya Kant and Hima Kohli, said: “When you’re good with the government, you may extract. Then you’ve to pay back with interest..”.

The bench further added that it is a new trend in the country and, queried, why should it grant protection to such officers?

Singh’s counsel submitted that officers like him need protection. However, the bench rebutted him, saying: “No, they’ve to go to jail.”

However, the top court, after hearing arguments, granted Singh interim protection and issued notice to the Chhattisgarh government. The top court has scheduled the matter for further hearing on October 1.

This is the third case where Singh had moved the top court seeking protection. On August 26, the top court had granted him interim protection in other two cases.

On the last hearing on the matter, the top court had orally pointed out a disturbing trend, where police officials siding with the party in power, later getting targeted when another political party comes into power.

The sedition case was filed against Singh based on a written complaint by the state Anti-Corruption Bureau, based on preliminary findings that he had amassed disproportionate assets. Certain documents were seized from his possession, which pointed at his involvement in a conspiracy against the government.

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
