Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (ANK) 

Mangaluru, Sep 9: Puttur MLA and district BJP president, Sanjeev Matandoor, called former Dakshina Kannada deputy commissioner Sasikanth Senthil as anti-national. 

Addressing media here on Monday, September 9, Sanjeev Matandoor said, "Entire country has understood the mentality of Sasikanth Senthil. As an officer, he is sincere. But in a media interview, he said he is against Article 370, Rama Rajya and many other things,” 

"After 5 years and 100 days, Sasikanth Senthil came to know that it is unethical on his part to continue as a civil servant when fundamental building blocks of diverse democracy are being compromised," he ridiculed. 

"Being a public servant, he spoke against the decision of the central government and hence Sasikanth Senthil is an anti-national," said Sanjeev Matandoor. 

Throughout the press conference, Sanjeev Matandoor called Sasikanth Senthil as a traitor and then later on changed the statement and said he is not a traitor but an anti-national. 

Matandoor also demanded a probe against Sasikanth Senthil, to find out if he had contacts with any organisations. 

Mangaluru North MLA Dr Bharath Y Shetty, BJP leaders Harikrishna Bantwal and others were present.

    In the history of independent India, there is no big terrorist than Naturam Godse from Jan Sangh who killed the father of nation Mahatama Gandhi. There are no big sympathizers than the BJP political wing of RSS which gave ticket terror accused Pragya Singh Takur who openly praised the Godse act.
    There is no big traitor than RSS Guru Veer Savarkar, a Staunch Supporter of British Colonialism At the time when Subhas Chandra Bose was raising his Indian National Army to confront the British in India, Savarkar helped the colonial government recruit lakhs of Indians into its armed forces.

    The Madhya Pradesh anti-terror squad arrested five persons in Satna district on the charge of helping ISI in terror funding through Chinese Box-enabled espionage.

    Pakistani handlers used Chinese Sim box – enabled fake telephone exchanges to cheat Indian citizens through various frauds including phone lottery. The money thus procured would be deposited in bank accounts of Indian nationals on a monthly rent ranging between Rs 2,000 and Rs 5,000.
    In 2017, BJP Leader's Kin among 11 arrested for running Pakistan's ISI spy ring in Madhya Pradesh. One of the arrested men, Dhruv Saxena, who is said to be working with the BJP’s IT Cell. Images of him attending an event with Shivraj Singh Chouhan and BJYM district head Anshul Tiwari has since gone viral.
    Puttur MLA and district BJP president, Sanjeev Matandoor seems to more expert of Pakistan than his constituency.
    If honest IAS officer resigns from the office saying 'Democracy is being compromised', then how BJP will remain 'Patriotic ' working for Pakistan ISI network?
    Then what about national security advisor Ajith Doval who belongs to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh affiliated Vivekananda Foundation.
    BJP created Jaish-e-Mohammad by releasing Masood Azhar during the Kandahar standoff in 1999.
    But Ajith Doval rewarded again to escort the three terrorists to Kandahar in Afghanistan, where they were handed over to the Taliban.

    I dont know the actual reason for which Senthil has resigned. He has every right to resign but if he has resigned purely based on 370 being abrogated, then his intention and timing of his resignation is questionable. I also feel, people and media should not give too much of importance on his personal decision to resign and leave him free. Because, after working for so many years, if he has suddenly realized that the system in which he is working is not in sync with his personal ethical standard, then his motive can be questionable too. The best option is to leave him free and let him decide what he wants to do. Too much of publicity of him is also dangerous and who knows that is what exactly what he is seeking in reality !

    Harish, do you watch world news? In the USA almost every month someone at the top in the government is quitting because of difference of opinion. One has to be true to his/her conscience. I personally like the abolition of Article 370, which was done in a brilliant way. However, I do respect the dissenting opinions. That is the beauty of democracy. (I never read anywhere Mr. Senthil disagreed with abolition of Article 370. Being a IAS officer, he perhaps had a better solution instead of abolishing) One cannot jump into the band wagon without thinking.

    19(1)(a).
    The fundamental right to freedom of speech and expression is regarded as one of the most basic elements of a healthy democracy for it allows its citizens to participate fully and effectively in the social and political process of the country. In fact, the freedom of speech and expression gives greater scope and meaning to the citizenship of a person extending the concept from the level of basic existence to giving the person a political and social life.
    This right is available only to a citizen of India and not to foreign nationals. This right is, however, not absolute and it allows Government to frame laws to impose reasonable restrictions in the interest of sovereignty and integrity of India, security of the state, friendly relations with foreign states, public order, decency and morality and contempt of court, defamation and incitement to an offence.

    In the Preamble to the Constitution of India, the people of India declared their solemn resolve to secure to all its citizen liberty of thought and expression. The Constitution affirms the right to freedom of expression, which includes the right to voice one’s opinion, the right to seek information and ideas, the right to receive information and the right to impart information. The Indian State is under an obligation to create conditions in which all the citizens can effectively and efficiently enjoy the aforesaid rights..

    BJP MLA's Sanjeeva Matandoor, Dr.Bharta Shetty, Harikrishna Bantwal and others have no moral right to speak against a honest DC Sasikant Senthil. BJP MLAs go to the poor people who lost their houses, properties and have no food to eat and help them istead of wasting your time on press meets.People have elected you to serve them and not play dirty politics. DC Sasikant Senthil gave ablow to sand mafia, so these people are upset with him. Do these MLAs know the meaning of anti nationals? Their MP Anantha Kumar Hegde also talking in the same line!!8232

    Either he has problem in understanding the situation or he is been asked by his party boss to utter the word anti. very sad state of affairs.

    Instead of focusing on development and growth, while our auto industry is down the drain, youth are lost without jobs and this man's party is on a witch hunting opposition politicians.

    Criticising any government is not an anti national act. However, criticising the decision taken by the parliament that include the members directly elected by the people of India is not in line with unity integrity and Sovereignty of the nation to which we all belongs to.
    If he had reservation regarding the way 370 was abrogated, still it was arguable, but definitely not the NATION decision to abrogate 370.

    1. BJP or any party in power is not equal to country. They are just regime whom people have given them chance to administer (not.even rule) for 5 years at once.
    2. Officer in debate as above didn't utter a word against government while in service, but he voiced his opinion after resigning- not a traitor.
    3. Article 19(1)(a) of constitution gives all citizens of India the freedom of speech n expression so being a citizen he has expressed his anguish against certain recent developments in policies by party in power at center-not an anti-national.
    So in conclusion the officer is neither a traitor nor an anti-national but a citizen who carries variant ideology but which is in consonance with constitution of India. Hence instead of personal attacks n damaging the image of an honest officer -welcome the intellectual criticisms n do self assessment....

    Article 370 ... It may sound good for our people or a party but it also favours atheistic super powers, why ?

    China and Russia use small countries to overcome bigger nations, once sufficient damage has been done through them, it is a cakewalk for them to capture and dominate the whole world, either directly or through proxy rulers. So prayers are needed to overcome atheism controlling whole world and for God's intervention. Our Lady frequently request for the same through various seers and messengers. China might use our neighbor against us for their advantage.

    God is not against praying people but God-less, self-god nations who want to dominate the world by supporting and creating rivarly between nations of different religions for their self gain and to establish their God less rule everywhere.

    Obviously, he doesn't know the actual meaning of traitor and anti-national. Senthil did a wonderful job in organizing sand distribution through an App and GPS monitoring system. Perhaps his straight forward action hit the nail on the head of corrupt people. Simply because someone has a different opinion than you, it doesn't make him anti-national. Fear mongering doesn't work for long as it has been proven in many other countries ruled by the dictators. Legislators cannot legislate peoples thoughts.
