MP cadre woman IAS officer wants to approach Anna Hazare; Why?

ANNA factor may no longer be as strong as it used to be, but an aggrieved woman IAS officer from Madhya Pradesh, Shashi Karnawat, has threatened to approach anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare against state chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, local media reports said. She has accused the chief minister of protecting the corrupt. No report has however carried the state government’s version.
Ms Karnawat, a 1999 batch Madhya Pradesh cadre IAS, has alleged that the state government has harassed her because she is a Dalit. She has claimed she was framed in a case of financial irregularities over a decade ago but got a clean chit. But the state government has not taken back the case as yet. She has worked as deputy secretary in the technical education department in the state.
52-year old IAS officer also said that she would take up the matter to National Commission for Women apart from approaching Hazare, reports said.
