BSP resorts to postering in Tamil Nadu in solidarity with suspended IAS C Umashankar

IN A bizarre instance of a political party openly lending support to a suspended bureaucrat by sticking posters in public places, UP chief minister Mayawati-led BSP has condemned Tamil Nadu’s ruling party, DMK, for suspending 1990 batch Tamil Nadu cadre IAS officer C Umashankar. The officer, who created a recent controversy when he recommended nationalisation of Maran brothers-owned Sumangali Cable Vision, was suspended for allegedly furnishing wrong information about his Schedule Caste status. The state government first cornered him for alleged accumulation of unaccounted wealth, a case which is now being fought at the Madras High Court.

For the record, BSP is an Indian political party with a strong base among SC community among others, mainly in Uttar Pradesh.
Now, Tamil Nadu unit of BSP struck posters in the state in solidarity with Umashankar. A graduate in corporate finance, Umashankar first shot into fame in 1995 when he unearthed the cremation shed scam in Madurai during AIADMK’s first tenure in the state. His expose was a major embarrassment for then chief minister J Jayalalithaa, but Umashankar then became a darling of AIADMK’s arch rival DMK.

  1. Sri Umasankar has become scape goat in the TN politics.He is not a politician. Arcot veerasamies and durai murugans know their changing roles whenever there are changes in equations in Thanmana thalaivar family.Poor umasankar did not know this Rajathanthiras of politics. But he will be in the hearts of those who stand for purity in public life.
