Rinku Singh Rahi - A Man against Corrupt System

Rinku Singh Rahi, is one of PCS officer fighting his battle against corruption in his own Government in Uttar Pradesh, one of most politically powerful state of India. Rinku Singh Rahi is fighting war against his own system and corruption involved in it with sacrifice and price of being honest Civil Servant. He is provincial civil services officer in Uttar Pradesh, who was whisked away by the police in a midnight crackdown in Lucknow, has now sat on his protest fast in Aligarh.  This young blood officer with hope to bring change has been trying to expose corruption in welfare schemes in Uttar Pradesh(UP). The Lucknow police picked up Mr Rahi on Monday night as he sat on a protest fast outside the assembly and allegedly took him to a mental ward in a hospital. But after the doctors rejected the attempt, Rahi was made to leave the city and was sent off to his hometown Aligarh.
Mr Rahi, who is currently posted at a state-run coaching institute for IAS and IPS aspirants in Aligarh, began his fast unto death on Monday demanding a probe into alleged corruption in the Social Welfare Department of the state's Muzzafarnagar district. He has alleged that despite a peaceful protest, the cops first lathicharged his group. And then, he added, they took him to a hospital and urged the staff there to admit to him to a psychiatric ward. "They told me they are taking me to a hospital because I had high blood pressure. But they tried to admit me to a psychiatric ward. The doctors refused to admit me. They said there was no need to treat me. I tried to expose certain scams that happened and so they want to shut me up. This was done on the instructions of the Samajwadi Party. This was well planned," Mr Rahi told NDTV, narrating his ordeal. His journey is from long time, In March 2009, when he was the District Social Welfare Officer in Muzaffarnagar, he was shot at by local mafia - they fired six bullets at him. As a result of the assault, he lost vision in one eye. The attack happened after he reported accounting discrepancies worth Rs. 40 crore to higher authorities. 
So where is New Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, who already facing complaints hooliganism and violent behavior by his partymen and now when a Civil servent try to remove corruption, he is treated like a Criminal by Govt. authorities. Thanks to media channels like NDTV, who raised voice else, Rinku Singh Rahi might be another hero fighting against corrupt system silently and paying high cost for being honest officer. We hope people will raise voice and join hand in fight against corruption with Sh. Rinku singh Rahi.
