Gender bender

There is an eerie silence in the corridors of the Ministry of Civil Aviation. It’s reported that a complaint of misbehaviour has been filed by women officials of Rajiv Gandhi National Aviation University at Fursatganj Raebareli, Dist. Amethi, Uttar Pradesh against a Joint Secretary. The said Joint Secretary is on the governing board of the University. Raebareli is a small place and this kind of behaviour has wildfire impact on the town. The young Joint Secretary is a new recruit under the Prime Minister’s lateral entry programme. The Joint Secretary was earlier working in a very senior position in a multinational company and was looking after aerospace and defence. The Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Puri Secretary Pradeep Singh Kharola have reportedly been informed about the incident. So far, no action has been taken. The said Joint Secretary never imagined that the government would be so serious about misbehaving with women. It’s yet to be seen what kind of action the government takes to make the working atmosphere congenial for women.
