A well wisher of DRDO says
Bitiya ki sadi hai. He can pay and hire the vehicle. May GOD give wisdom to him. ……..
The problem with scientists of DRDO is, they try to imitate Army officers style….. The army army officers misuse army vehicles, and jawans for their domestic works….. like any uniformed service personals do in this country. Being in very close interaction with the army, they also try to pretend as major generals and L.generals and misuse official machinery. And army is a close book for this low intensity corruption and misuse, it never come to public notice where as the pretenders get caught for their misuse.
I suggest DRDO scientist to stop pretending to be brigadiers and generals
Everybody knows about drdo and army so there is no point of pretention. Corruption is only corruption and should not be accepted anywhere, may be army, drdo or other.
Alok Balhwan says
Mr. Bhutiyani has very low standards of ethics. After joining DTRL as a Director he has been using the office staff for his personal housework. His TSO (Sh. Ram Prakash Sc ‘C’) has been an active abettor in these activities. Few months back he had allowed one of the scientists of his lab to pursue an MBA degree, in a subject which has no relations with the work done at DTRL. This was when many of the younger scientists are still waiting for applying for a phd degree.
Previously he had been using the pretext of official tours for visiting his family in Chandigarh. Its a shame that DRDO has choosen a person like him to lead DTRL.
God save DRDO !
