Well, folks, gather ’round for a tale of government gone wrong and a dose of poetic justice! Remember that IAS officer Rinku Dugga who thought it was perfectly fine to turn a stadium in Delhi into her personal dog-walking park? Well, hold onto your hats because the government has just delivered the best comeback: Compulsory Retirement!
Yes, you heard that right! The government wasn’t too thrilled with Ms. Rinku Dugga’s stadium strolls, so they decided it was time to give her a permanent vacation. This decision came after a thorough review of her career record, as The Indian Express reports. Now, let’s get to know the star of our show a bit better. Ms. Dugga, a 1994-batch AGMUT cadre officer, had quite the gig as the Principal Secretary of Indigenous Affairs in Arunachal Pradesh. But things took a turn for the…let’s say “interesting” when Rinku Dugga and her husband, Sanjeev Khirwar (also a 1994-batch IAS officer), made headlines for all the wrong reasons.
You see, last year, a little video went viral, and it wasn’t your typical cat doing cute tricks. No, this video featured athletes and coaches at Delhi’s Thyagraj Stadium, and they weren’t happy campers. Why, you ask? Because they were unceremoniously kicked out of their training sessions, forced to pack up by 7 pm. Why? So that Mr. Khirwar, Delhi’s Principal Secretary of Revenue, could saunter in with his furry friend for a leisurely dog-walking session. Talk about a paw-some priority!
But that’s not the end of our saga. After the whole stadium uproar, things had to change. Mr. Khirwar got his ticket to Ladakh with a transfer, leaving the stadium in peace. As for IAS officer Rinku Dugga, she found herself packing her bags and heading to Arunachal Pradesh as the Principal Secretary of Indigenous Affairs.
Now, here’s where it gets spicy. The government, in all its wisdom, decided it was time to give Ms. Dugga a taste of her own medicine. They reached deep into their rulebook, specifically Fundamental Rules (FR) 56(j) and Rule 48 of Central Civil Services (CCS) Pension Rules, 1972. These rules basically say that if the government thinks it’s in the public interest, they can give a government servant the boot. And that’s precisely what they did!
So, as we bid adieu to dog-walking stadium days of IAS officer Rinku Dugga, we can’t help but wonder where she’ll pop up next. Perhaps she’ll join the Khan Market cartel, devising new and innovative ways to maintain the colonial hangover. Who knows? One thing’s for sure, though – the stadium belongs to the athletes once more, and their training sessions won’t be interrupted by any entitled dog-walkers anytime soon! It’s a reminder that sometimes, even the mightiest fall when they forget who the real stars of the show are – the people.
