जिगरबाज कारकिर्दीची हताश अखेर

पोलिस दलात "क्रेन बेदी' म्हणून ओळखले जाणारे एक जिगरबाज तरीही वादग्रस्त व्यक्तिमत्त्व. वाहतुकीचे नियम तोडणाऱ्यांविरुद्ध तीन दशकांपूर्वी त्यांनी केलेल्या धडाकेबाज कारवाईमुळे त्यांना हे नामाभिधान मिळाले. माजी पंतप्रधान इंदिरा गांधी यांची गाडीही नियम तोडला म्हणून त्यांनी उचलली. या कारवाईने त्या प्रसिद्धीच्या झोतात आल्या.

त्यांच्या कर्तृत्वाने प्रेरणा घेऊन अनेक तरुणींनी पोलिस दलात जाण्याचा मार्ग चोखाळला. दूरचित्रवाणीवरील मालिकेतील कथानायिका होण्यापर्यंत त्यांच्या कामगिरीची "उडान' पोचली. समर्पणाने काम करण्याच्या वृत्तीमुळे प्रतिष्ठेचा "मॅगसेसे' पुरस्कार त्यांना मिळाला. त्यांच्या या जिगरबाज कारकिर्दीची अखेर मात्र हताशपणे झाली. त्यांच्या स्वेच्छानिवृत्तीचा अर्ज सरकारने आज मंजूर केला.

वर्षभरापूर्वी दिल्लीच्या पोलिस आयुक्तपदाची संधी त्यांना नाकारण्यात आली आणि तुलनेने दुय्यम असलेल्या पोलिस संशोधन आणि विकास केंद्राच्या महासंचालकपदी सरकारने त्यांची नियुक्ती केली. केवळ महिला म्हणूनच आपल्याला या पदासाठी डावलण्यात आल्याचे लक्षात आल्यानंतर त्यांनी स्वेच्छानिवृत्तीसाठी अर्ज केला होता. दीड महिना त्या अर्जावर विचार केल्यानंतर सरकारने तो मंजूर केला. हा अर्ज मंजूर झाल्याच्या वृत्ताला बेदी यांनीही दुजोरा दिला.

""स्वेच्छानिवृत्ती अर्ज स्वीकारण्यात आल्याचे पत्र मला सरकारकडून आजच मिळाले,'' असे त्यांनी सांगितले.

किरण बेदी यांना दिल्लीच्या पोलिस आयुक्तपदाची संधी नाकारून, भारतीय समाजव्यवस्था आजही पुरुषसत्ताकच आहे, याचे दर्शन सरकारने घडविले आहे. अशा तळपत्या व्यक्तिमत्त्वाचा शेवट अशाप्रकारे होणे आपल्याला पटते का? मग लिहा आम्हाला...

I think Govt. Of India loses very good police officer. but on the other side Kiran Bedi have took this decision in hurry. I remember one good phrase 'If you want to change the system, you have to be in system' Now, She is not in system. but she is a very good police officer. All indians appreciated her work. All the best to Kiran Bedi for her future work.

hmm..It is very difficult to control corrupt congress government and most corrupt alliances (RJD / NCP), unfortunately there is no single leader can save our country, except few from Bha Ja Pa, i think this party should promote Narendra Modi for national politics and may be for Prime Ministral post, as of today, youth see him an icon and most ideal personality.

Very sad picture of all parties, look at our National Leader so called "Janata Raaja", agriculture minister, we find him in Pune for more than 300+ days in a year, what he is doing here? is he a pune or baaramati minister or just a corporator? Dont he see the farmer suiside?

What do they expect a great and most kartabgar senior govt official should do, than resigning? they are really frustrated of these dirty politicians.

Really god also will find difficult to save this country.

Government of India does not require officers who do not kneel before ministers.All the more so, if they have an international image.After all it is the government "of the ministers, by the ministers and for the ministers".Who cares for common masses?

I guess it would have been very difficult for Mrs/ Bedi to change the politically influenced police force while remaining in the system. Her decision is right. Lets see which political party she joins...........people like her who have proved themselves during their public service should be in Indian politics if we want to see real change.

One more victim of the system!!!!
Good people are no more required by the government. They need people who obey the orders no matter what is it.
So we just wish the best to Kiran Bedi in the future and pray to god that the ministers will do something better for the country.

Its a very unexpected end to a sparkling career. As stated by one blogger, it is certainly not taken in a hurry, rather it is an outcome of a thoughtful thinking process. No one can be sidelined and still be motivated. This is what has been happening in Kiran bedi's case.
Shame on the govt. for loosing a capable officer for some secondary one. But maybe, as once Kushwant sing said", this is an age of mediocrity".

महिला म्हणुन हा अन्याय झाला असे वाटत असेल तर तो एक गैरसमज आहे असे मला वाटते.. जरी इतका प्रामाणिक पुरुष असता तरी ही त्याला अपमानीत करुन या ’यंत्रणेने’ हाकलेच असते.

At last currupt politians are successful. In current Indian politics, politians are not bothered about nation at all.

किरण बेडींसारख्या बेडर,कर्तबगार ज्येष्ठ पोलिस आधिका-यांवर राजिनामा देण्याची पाळी आली वे तो त्वरेने स्विकारला गेला यांतच आपल्या केन्द्र सरकारची हरवलेली नितीमत्ता पुर्ण लक्षात येते.
अशा कार्य़क्षम पोलिस अधिका-याला त्यांचे मन वळविण्याचा प्रयत्न कुठल्याहि मंत्र्याने/पुढा-याने केला नाही ही अत्यंत खेदाची गोष्ट आहे.एरवी बेंबीच्या देठापासून फ़ालतु विषयांवर बोंबलणारे हे लोक अशा वेळी मौन बाळगणारच!
महाराष्ट्रातील दिल्लीला गेलेले गृहमंत्री धरून इतर मंत्री लोकपण गप्पच!
"पोलिस खाते" हे गृहमंत्र्याच्या अखत्यारीत येत असून गृहमंत्र्यांचे अफ़झलसारखेच या बाबतीतपण मौन!
नुकतीच बातमी आली होती की विमानतळावरील सुरक्षादलांकडून सुरक्षा जांच करण्यापासून माफ़ केलेल्या १२ ठराविक महत्वाच्या पदांच्या व्यक्तींमध्ये सोनिया गांधी व त्यांचे सर्व परिवार [रोबर्ट वध्ररासुद्धा धरून] सदस्यपण मोडतात व या श्रेणीमध्ये आता नौदल,वायुदल व स्थलसेनादलांचे प्रमुख यांची १३ वी श्रेणी घातली आहे.सोनिया गांधींचा परिवार यात कसा पोचला याचे स्पष्टीकरण ग्रुहमंत्री देउ शकतील कां?
किरण बेडींवर ही पाळी आली ही अत्यंत वाईट बातमी आहे.त्यांना त्यांच्या भविष्यकाळात सन्मानाने जगता यावे हीच प्रार्थना करतो!

Kiran Bedi should now join politics and change it. And it is OUR responsibility to support her in politics.
