A Good Samaritan resigns IAS’ job: In name of his freedom of expression?

New Delhi: Kannan Gopinathan (IAS:2012:AGMUT), a Good Samaritan, resigned from service for reportedly protesting against voice of people getting scuttled. This was obviously in reference to J&K. Gopinathan's claim to fame has been his anonymous participation in Kerala flood relief last year.

 

Serving as secretary of power, urban development and town and country planning departments of the Union territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli, he sent his resignation to Union Home Secretary on August 21, 2019. The 2012 batch IAS officer wants his freedom of expression back.

 

His hint was clear that there has been no response even from within the service to the detaining of former civil servant Shah Faesal. The Kottayam residence completed his schooling from Puthuppally and had done electrical engineering from Birla Institute of Technology. During 2018 floods in Kerala, he participated in the relief work keeping his identity hidden until a fellow officer identified him.
