I am Jayashree J.N, married to an IAS officer M.N.Vijayakumar of Karnataka Cadre who has served in Karnataka for the last 25 years. My husband is continuously fighting corrupt practices in the system. As there is harassment to my husband for exposing the corrupt practices of the senior officers, and as the harassment is silently watched (or more probably supported) by the head of the bureaucracy, I also decided to take up his causes. My husband has continued his efforts to attack corruption at the root without being afraid of the threats he received and harassment meted out to him.

From September 2006 to February 2007 my husband has been transferred six times in six months, each time for reporting serious corrupt practices by senior officers. My husband has also informed the Chief Secretary in writing that he would like to watch to what level the corrupt would be protected and then approach the CAT. He hopes to get decisions from appropriate authorities that the requirement of absolute integrity in Service Rules also provide for protection of the Whistle Blowers. Because of this he did not go immediately to the CAT. He wants publc pressure to be built to either for the immediate enactment of the The Public Service Law or at least for immediate enactment of provisions relating to protection of Whistle Blowers
