CHENNAI:The Tamil Nadu IAS Officers Association on Tuesday strongly condemned the attempt made to tarnish and defame some of the officers in the State without any basis.
A resolution to this effect was adopted at the meeting of the association held on Tuesday afternoon.
“The Association expresses its deep anguish and concern over the recent display of posters in public places with names and photographs of some of its members with allegations of corruption, without any basis,” said P W C Davidar, president of the association, and K Rajaraman, its secretary, in a joint statement here.
“This is highly demoralising for the IAS officers of this State, who have put in their sincere and dedicated service in bringing the State to its leading position in the country.”
“We are sure that citizens of the State and the media appreciate this very well,” Davidar and Rajaraman further said.
Pointing out that the Indian Administrative Service officers were open to constructive criticism, they strongly condemned such efforts intended to tarnish and defame individual officers without basis.
