Mangaluru, Sep 20: The village accountant office located in Kavoor which is in a dilapidated state, needs the government’s attention at the earliest.

The locals in the vicinity have been raising their voice over the condition of the office. Bogged down by administrative apathy, visitors feel very hesitant to visit the old dilapidated building.

The condition and surroundings of the office look pathetic, resembling a haunted building. The roof, switchboards, walls, furniture, fan, electric wires, notice boards and doors are quite old which have remained untouched for years now.

During monsoon, there was an instance where the building witnessed leakage from the roof resulting in damage of documents, said locals.

Felcy Rego from Kavoor says, “I am 72 now. I have been looking at this building for years. The government needs to pay attention to restore this building or have a new village accountant office building. Many come to this place. We feel ashamed to look at the condition of the structure.”

Despite the pathetic condition of the building, the officials in it are working relentlessly. The road towards the office is elevated and is dangerous for the elderly to climb and visit the building. Many elderly have fallen down and rickshaw drivers from the stand nearby came to their help.

“Many ministers and MLAs pass opposite the building on their way to the airport and unfortunately none of them have observed the condition of the building. They do not seem to have any concern towards the officials working in the building. The corporator also does not seem to care about cleaning the surroundings. Poisonous snakes had entered the building,” says Jalaja.

The locals are demanding the government to come forward and restore the building at the earliest.

    If this is the condition of Village Accountants office within city limits, you can imagine the fate of those in villages. We should congratulate the BJP leaders and all other politicians for achieving such unique status. They can compete with African countries and may win a prize. These type of buildings do not seem to be coming in the action plan of politicians who go around boasting about their achievements.

    The VA office is one of the most important offices, hidden away from all the razzmatazz of the offices populated by the IAS & IPS in the country, at the grassroots level. The VA is also one of the most powerful govt. officials at the grassroots level. This is the level at which huge tracts of govt. land get usurped by greedy unethical citizens, in full public glare with all the hyenas (the holiest of holy among the human beings) feasting on the carrion (govt. land). Considering that the system only allows corrupt people to turn into politicians and to get elected, it is offices like these that get the most neglected(just like the police, judiciary etc), as it is these corrupt politicians who spin the circle of corruption. IMHO that IAS probationers(sooner this ICS in India is scrapped the better) should begin work at VA level, working their way up to Panchayat secretary, PDO etc, promotions being based purely on merit and not on years spent in warming up the chairs; putting in at least 2 years at each level. Further, to aggravate the situation I am told that one VA is made to “look after” 4 gram panchayats- which means that he is given an impossible task,on account of which he sits doing nothing(as he cannot be everywhere) even if he is honest. Unconfirmable reports from ground level speak of people having to pay 3 -10 lakhs to get selected even in remote areas. From what I know most selections are done within the system( family of govt. officials). Sadly, even the citizenry have no interest in their own welfare and have least interest in good governance choosing to suffer while politicians keep them distracted with religious entertainment, entertainment,entertainment.

    India, the next super power with its 5 trillion dollar economy dream; very great aspiration. But grass root level development needs to happen - the government cannot aspire for global leadership while it does not serve its citizens.
