It seems DRDO take U –turn in DMSRDE corruption cases. Shri AvinashChander , DGR&D and SA to RM constituted second four members FFIC under Chairmanship of Dr. D C Pande, Outstanding Scientist, LRDE, Bangalore and members Shri Haribabu Srivastva, Director, LASTEC, New Delhi, Shri R S Mehta, Joint Director, Dte of Vigilance& Security, DRDO Hqrs, Shri Jagdeep, Scientist ‘F’,Dte of Materials Management DRDO Hqrs reached at Kanpur on 9th July early morning 5:00 AM at DMSRDE, Guest House, Kanpur by Rewa Express.
In deference to three members first FFIC which was led by Dr. S S Negi, Outstanding Scientist,this second FFIC did not entertained Dr. A K Saxena, Director, DMSRDE, Kanpur. Dr.Saxena was sent for two days leave and remained in his government residence just adjacent to Transit Hostel’s DRTC Room where whole FFI was conducted for two days by FFIC.
The first FFIC Committee did their inquiry under supervision of Dr. A K Saxena in DMSRDE Office in the room just opposite to Dr. Saxena office so that he can monitor activities of first FFIC. Chairman & members of first FFIC tried their best to discourage complainants and in month of March 2014 all scientists were under pressure due to their APAR and coming assessment and not opened or uttered any single word against Dr. A K Saxena in front of first FFI Committee. The first FFI Committee overlooked the gravity of complaints to Defence Minister rather they were busy in digging the past history of complainants. They were basically misleded and managed by Dr. A K Saxena.
The letter No DOP/DS/008/M/01 dated 28 May 2014 of DOP Dr. A K Singh prepared on basis of first FFI Committee Report already exposed the nexus between Dr. A K Saxena and first FFI Committee because the without any constitution rights and ignoring the terms and condition of FFI Committee they simply recommended the transfers of both complainants with baseless and illogical reasons. It should be asked to Dr. S S Negi, Outstanding Scientist that if on allegations of habitual drinking one senior Scientist may be transferred then what about the drinkers of whole DRDO right from top at DRDO HQ and bottom at 52 Establishment/Labs of DRDO. Why they have not been transferred even they are heavy habitual drinker. In fact first FFIC was hijacked by Dr. A K Saxena.
The two days grilling of involved scientists of DMSRDE by second FFI Committee members especially by Shri Mehta, Vigilance, DRDO Hqrs shows some hope that the committee will help to Shri Avinash Chander , DGR&D and SA to RM and DRDO Hqrs to take one step forward towards eradicate prevailing corruption in DRDO like Dr A K Tyagi, Sc ‘G’ waiting to face CVC disciplinary proceeding against him as he also involved in corrupt practices in procurement at DIAT, Pune.
Some scientists of DMSRDE given in writing about the facts of these procurements and shows their helplessness.
Second FFI Committee also got advantage that the DRRDS result was declared and scientists who supported Dr. A K Saxena’s corrupt practices under pressure opened up and exposed the modus of oprendi adopted by Dr. A K Saxena. FFI Committee also got inputs about nexus between M/s Manglam Trades, Kanpur (Mr.Anish Gupta/Mr. Manish Gupta) and Dr. A K Saxena in various procurement cases.
1. Reactor case is open case that the procurement was done in coalition with M/s Manglam Trades because all mails are the perfect evidences of corruption and DRDO Hqrs already aware that CBI, Lucknow have already got all evidences and approached MOD. Payment of Reactor case has not been made till so far even after 18 months the Reactor was installed in January 2013 at DMSRDE.
2. The case of procurement of Laboratory Microprocessor Based Programmable High Temp.Furnace supplied by M/s Omega Furnace Industries, Bangalore. In this case illegal Second TPC was done for recommending to make payment to M/s Manglam Traders, Kanpur.( It can happen only in DRDO)
3. Fume Hood Chamber procurement case is open example of looting in DRDO.
Common man are waiting to see the impact of new Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji’s Government on DRDO, as Shri Avinash Chander Ji especially mentioned in his address in last JCM that “now new government has come and the accountability is also increased”.
It is coincidence that both FFIC having chairman from Uttarakhand and Uttarakhandies are famous for their honesty and devotion in service. We hope that like Dr. S SNegi, the Chairman of second FFIC Dr. D C Pande will not be hijacked by corrupt nexus of DRDO and he will do justice with DMSRDE people.
