DRDO very well know about the neck deep corruption dump of dirt. Dr A K Saxena is still safe because he involved lot of scientists and official of DRDO & CDA in his corruption game. Although some scientists involved in dirty game because of DRDO promotion policy, some were wrap unknowingly only for signature requirement.
So to explain his corruption practice in detail is not so important but the helplessness of DRDO top authorities is more important. Now days in the Modi era the top DRDO official are not enjoying cream like their predecessor enjoyed free unaccounted budget.
Christopher work is to sweep or cover their corruption cases, although some wiser ones are leaving DRDO before catch. But in one case last date before leaving DRDO great scientist cleared 35 crs file, it seems same was the pension perks. There is no time to spent even sanctioned budget. Most of labs are in no project state they are passing their time in buildup and maintenance. Directors of lab are surviving on construction and todu aur phir banao mode. Since last three years DRDO not having any achievement in which they ask PM to come and see.
See the budget
Year Allocation of funds
(Rs. in crore)
Nirbhay is still in soup after four failures but without fixing the problem again pushing to lit poor tax payers money.
In parliament questions DRDO successfully following the tradition that not to reply or mislead the honorable parliament. see the records never replied with honor that yes we achieved this and next day front page news come in all news papers.
It is high time to reorganize DRDO labs as Lieutenant General DB Shekatkar (Retired) in his report “Shut down Laboratories and Overhaul the DRDO, Expert Committee Tells Defence Ministry”
The DMSRDE is fit case for that to attach this lab to CSIR and definitely then KANPUR lab will contribute their best to nation and help Modi ji for his make in India mission.
The DRDO Vigilance always headed by top chamchas because they never apply their mind only look for node from earlier SA office now they have plenty bosses. Ones Christopher tried to put honest man AVM Reddy but then DOP and others paralyzed him and he quit the DRDO.
So corruption’s roots are very deep in DRDO, MODI & YOGI also cannot uproot corruption of DRDO.
