After Gopinathan, another IAS quits service


Friday (September 6): Few days after resignation of ex-IAS Kannan Gopinathan, cadre Dadra and Nagar Haveli administration, S Sasikanth Senthil, Deputy Commissioner in Karnataka, quit the IAS. In a letter he written by him he apologizes to the people for “discontinuing his job”.

S Sasikanth Senthil, a 2009 batch IAS officer and currently Deputy Commissioner of Dakshina Kannada district in Karnataka, wrote in his letter that it is “unethical” for him to continue as a civil servant in the government when the “fundamental building blocks of democracy are being compromised in an unprecedented manner”.

While clarifying that his resignation is “not in any way” connected to any event or a particular person, he wrote, “I also feel strongly that the coming days will present extremely difficult challenges to the basic fabric of our nation and that I would be better off outside the IAS to continue with my work at making life better for all.”

Before Mr. Senthil, it was ex-IAS from Dadra and Nagar Haveli Mr. Kannan Gopinathan who has presented his resignation. This 2012 batch officer resigned as a protest against central government’s denial of fundamental rights to Kashmiri people aftermath of the abrogation of Article 370.
