IT Department Slaps Dues of Rs 9 Lac on Kejriwal


IT Department Slaps Dues of Rs 9 Lac on Team Anna Member Kejriwal

Daijiworld Media Network

New Delhi, Sep 2: The central government, which seems to have suddenly woken up from deep slumber after people like Baba Ramdev and MP, Jaganmohan Reddy revolted against it, strangely appears to have realized that Arvind Kejriwal, hardcore loyalist and follower of Anna Hazare, is due to pay over nine lac rupees. It is learnt that the income tax department served a notice last month on Kejriwal, its former officer, to pay a sum of over nine lac rupees, which it claims is legitimately due to it.

Kejriwal had worked as additional commissioner of income tax. During that period, he had given birth to a non-government organization, ‘Parivartan’ through which he had tried to mitigate the problems of the people by getting their work done at various government offices without having to pay any bribes. He had also won Magsaysay Award for his social service initiatives.

It is learnt that Kejriwal was served the notice about a week before Anna Hazare was to begin his fast unto death demanding implementation of Jan Lokpall bill.

Kejriwal had resigned from his post in 2006. As the income tax department is yet to relieve him from his post, technically he continues to be in the service of that department. Normally, all resignations or voluntary retirement cases have to be handled within three months. It is not known how the department took such a long time to take a clear cut stand on the issue. The department claims that Kejriwal has to pay it the said sum, to enable it to accept his resignation and relieve him from its service, as he had violated certain conditions contained in the bond he had executed in its favour.

Anna team sees red in the initiative, which was undertaken by the department only after Kejriwal’s criticism of the centre became harsher and louder. Former Karnataka Lokayukta, Justice N Santosh Hegde, too supports this view, because of the timing of the notice. He thinks Kejriwal is being targeted because of his unequivocal support of Anna Hazare’s movement.

He also pointed out that the government, which sat on a resignation letter for five long years, seems to have been driven by suspicious motives, in suddenly asking Kejriwal to pay up the above sum within a week. Noting that attempts to muffle voices of revolt have always been made by successive governments, he feels the central government may also try to harass or malign team members of Anna on one pretext or the other.

BJP spokesperson, Rajiv Pratap Rudy, too branded the initiative of the income tax department as  an effort to tame Kejriwal. “Apparently, the government is not taking kindly to the battle undertaken by Kejriwal against corruption. In the past too, it had targeted people who had raised voices of dissent against it. The motive of the government is there for everyone to see,” he commented.

    If there is payable to the Govt why anyone is crying foul now?. He faught against corruption and he has to obey the Law and pay what belongs to the Govt.

    Even we all should be careful henceforth and teach our children the morale and to follow Law. Much of the time the young children were caught for drunken driving and accidents. Henceforth, one can not argue or use influance to release them. One should obey the Law so that the child should get punishment or fine in line to the Law. We want a corruption free society and the beginining should be from within. If we look for a Society free of crime and corruption, we should also pay Govt what is due and obey the Law. Nothing can be above the Law. I am not threatening of the consequences but would like to create an awareness. The Team Anna now crying foul is not correct. They should come clean.

    Timing of the Income Tax Dept. serving the notice may be questionable, but when Mr. Kezriwal shouts from the roof tops about anti curruption and proboty in public life is it not he him self should be above board ,just like ceaser's wife?

    BJP may not required your certificate, Indian people are intelligent enough to gauge who can do what. Don't sit in Austarlia & preach and think for reason why you have to go & work/study in Australia.Congress is champion in playing caste based politics & appeasing minorites.

    All parties are same faces of the coin called corruption. If it is BJP it will still be Bad as they play along with corruption, Caste politics, people will be fighting in the streets(Hindu-Muslim-Christians)We have seen all BJP Drama for % long years. Other then Ram Temple issue they did nothing.Removed the mosque and now trying to remove churches. They couldnt build Temple by removing mosque. Congress is corrupt as well, It is always better off with Congress rather then corrupt and Religious hatred BJP any day.

Advani can never become PM, Sushma swaraj other then ig Mouth absaute bullshit.At least Mamta is big mouth but works hard for her people at least(west bengal)Ramdev,Nam dev all big thieves in saffron colours with big balance in the Bank and show off.Having said all above I fully support ANNA.

    Income Tax law needs a big change and should function without any external influences. If the IT officials are found to perform their duty at the influence of the Central Govt such officials should be taken to task and try to make them spill out the name of the minister who had forced them to act against some people. I don’t understand why the IT department had not accepted his resignation letter for the last five years and suddenly they found him guilty of not paying the arrears. We the public should know why were such a big delay?

    No doubt this is a mischevious move
    by the IT dept, motivated by interested parties! First thing for the authorities to do is to dismiss
    all the bosses of Kejriwal, who did not act in time ! Besides they, if the case carries any weight, slept over it for 5 long years and that their was no work accumulation in respect!

    In fact the Anna movement is aimed at corruption which includes delay, neglect, discrimination, desparity and so on ! THIS IS AN EXAMPLE AS TO HOW OUR GOVERNMENT DEPTS WORKS !

    It seems govt. is consolidating its hold on Anna groups,so that they will not come up with new ideas against the govt.

    Nobody above the law in India.Be it Anna,Kejriwal,IT department or whoever may be.But the timing is perfectly not standard application.Last five years the resignation of Kajriwal for IT department which was not disposed is a point of reckoning. Neither Kejriwal not thought of clearing issue nor IT department felt so...Anyway both parties are @ 50/50 guilty in this regard.To settle matters naturally court is the right place.

    This is nothingn but high handed suppression and revenge o n popula voices by the UPA govt. This govt must go. Let the IT dept slap notices to and recover dues from defaulters which runs into billions from politicians, their run companies and industirialists like Tatas, Bajajs, Sharad pawar, Ambanis and the like may tax evaders. Let A. Raja rot in jail until his death. The money belongs to the people of India and not to these thugs. Let Sonia Gandhi bring Rs, 19,800 crores which is swiss bank. Why Robert wadedhra has been given Z security and VVVIP status?? Whose money is spent on their security???? We the people of India has right over these politicians and their black money.... We need bloodless revolution. We need electoral reforms, we need political reforms and we need legal and judicial reforms, We need research and reforms and amendments to our constitution. We need tight nooze around the neck of all corrupt and defaulting bureaucrats and politicians...If they dont heed to the popular demand/voice, tnen they dont have the right to continue in the office. Law makers have to enact what the nation demands and utive have to implement what the nation demands and judiciary has to protect the pooular will and not the will of politicians who are mere minorities.. Jai Hind. Ilove my India. Hell to corrupt people and corrupt thoughts.....Jai Anna team..We are with you sir..
