The endless bickerings in government service shows the kind of leadership we have and the bad service we get. The question is: Why is there so much opposition to investigate the reported anomalies? Isn’t the moral imperative to “be clean” part of public service?
If the service being given is “clean,” why fear an investigation? One must pay the price for dishonesty in public service.
Indeed, the fear of being investigated is a sign of guilt. The fact is that grading government service on the basis of unachieved set objectives is the only way to determine whether one has succeeded or failed in serving the people.
If we fail to do our duties, we have to face the consequences. Karma, in modern times, is known simply as “reward for successful performance of duties and assignments, and punishment for failure.”
