IGP Traffic Basant Rath has been in news for quite some time now. While people may question the way he is on the path of changing the Orthodox system and put arguments to counter his modus operandi but I have been watching his each move with utmost curiosity.
I congratulate him for being bold, decisive, honest and above all impartial in enforcing law . His unique style and principle of dealing every soul equally irrespective of his/her stature reinforces the equality of law. He trascends the border of traditional appeasement policy and reinforces faith of downtrodden in law enforcing agencies. I have read his poems too which reflect the saga of suffering people, I wish such honesty and truthfulness is a norm rather than exception in law enforcing agencies. Basant Rath may be toothache for the elites but surely a breather for downtrodden.
Kashmir needs officers who become harbingers of peace and conflict resolution rather than the other way round, who knows it better than him and only a few can deliver ……
