  • Description

    More than one hundred Class One officers of India's Public Service, showed their displeasure at the Government on Wednesday (1 May) by lowering a time capsule with the words "wasted words, broken promises" painted on the side, into the ground near the Government offices in New Delhi. The capsule contained a list of grievances against the Government by the Public Service.

    A spokesman for the All India Confederation of Central Government Officers' Association said the list went back 27 years and contained promises made to the people and the Public Service which had been broken. Similar time capsules were placed in the ground in 50 other centres throughout India. The capsules contain extracts of public declarations by past Prime Ministers and Presidents as well as the findings of various enquiry committees whose recommendations the Officers' Association say were not heeded.
