    Pranab Mukherjee aide gave order to post 'mad' Anna Hazare letter

    An alleged defamatory letter calling Anna Hazare "mad" and "communal" was posted on the website of the department of personnel and training (DoPT) on an order from the officer on special duty to finance minister Pranab Mukherjee.

    An RTI reply from the DoPT to activist S. C. Agrawal reveals that out of over 15,000 suggestions received from across the country on the Lokpal Bill, only 22 selected letters were posted on its website under "instructions from the higher authorities". Among these was a letter written by Mohammed Asim Khan, which called Anna communal.

    It was chosen by Pradeep Gupta, OSD to Mukherjee.

    In its reply, the DoPT said 706 suggestions in the form of hard copies and 14,875 suggestions through email were received.

    "In all, 706 suggestions in the form of hard copies and 14,875 suggestions through email were received. Twenty-two suggestions were uploaded on the website following orders from higher-ups," the department said in its reply.

    In his letter, Khan said Anna remembers the names of three freedom fighters - Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev - while forgets the names of Ashfaqullah Khan, Bahadur Shah Zafar and Tipu Sultan. This shows Anna is not a Gandhian but is communal, it states.

    It is not fair with the personalities like Anna ji. It seems that there is too much turbulent in the bureaucratic circle because of Jan Lokpal bill, which plays vital role in making equilibrium between three organs of government.
