Secrets behind disclosure of ACR of Sri U.N. Behera in public domain
Few days back, I came across a news telecast in an electronics media about Sri Naveen Patnaik, Chief Minister of Odisha giving 10 out of 10 marks in Annual Confidential Report (ACR) of Shri Upendra Nath Behera IAS Additional Chief Secretary to Chief Minister who is retiring next year. In fact I was surprised by this news. As I know ACRs are confidential internal-documents. They are kept under lock & key. Even the copy of ACRs is also denied to public under RTI Act. I got astonished how Media did access such confidential information.
For past few years, under disclosure scheme, ACRs are being given to concerned employees. In this case, it is clear that Shri U.N. Behera had given copy of his ACR to media for publicity. It is also part of Image building exercise of bureaucrats like Sri U.N.Behera to glorify their career publicly which might be affected due to various misdeeds and illegalities. But good bureaucrats having honesty and integrity never practise it. Sri Naveen Patnaik is a politician. His remarks are not important because politicians’ ACR remarks are not given weightage by Govt. of
while assessing an IAS officer. With what motive Shri Behera had published his
ACR through media is questionable. There are other IAS officers who have got outstanding
remarks throughout their career. Why no one has ever given his ACR to media? Why
Sri Behera has given? Is Shri Upendra Nath Behera IAS 1983 who is to retire in
next year is doing publicity of ACR remarks of Naveen Patnaik to cover up his
dark past and present? India
It is reliably learnt that more than 20 letters have come to State Govt. from DOP&T, Govt. of India to inquire about doubtful SC Caste Certificate of Shri Upendra Nath Behera IAS, who has allegedly obtained a fake caste-certificate in the name of his adopting father Laxmidhar Behera of Jahala Mahanga and not in the name of his real biological father and mother. Thus, his caste certificate as an SC is allegedly fake. Three Files on this subject has been sent to Chief Minister and all 3 Files have not returned back for years. In this context, an FIR was also filed by Sri Ashok Mallik, Dalit Leader in Capital Police Station in 2014.
Shri Behera has obtained a G.A. Plot in the name of his wife Anusuya Behera in Bharatpur Mouza in 2011 while he was Special Secretary G.A. by concealing his ownership of one Plot & house in Patia Mouza since 1997. Moreover, sometimes before his transfer from G.A. on 2-11-2012 he has removed first 12 pages from
file of Anusuya Behera his wife which includes a false affidavit submitted by
his wife in 2011. Sri Behera is avoiding inquiry into this. On 27.11.15, a memorandum was submitted by Civil Society Groups of Odisha to Sri Gokul Ch. Pati, then Chief
Secretary demanding an enquiry into his
land scam. No response has been received from Govt. till yet. G.A. Land
His dark past also includes some matters as PS to Union Minister Sri Braja Kishor Tripathy and as CVO DDA New Delhi, and as Special Secretary G.A. for which CBI officers visit him from time to time.
Is UN Behera trying to cover up all this by publicizing his 10 out of 10 in ACR given by Naveen Patnaik?
