Cabinet wants Jerome punished

The Hindu

Bangalore Aug. 30. The Cabinet today adopted a tough posture against Jayakar Jerome, former Commissioner of the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) and Secretary, Minority Welfare, who said he would sue former Prime Minister H.D. Deve Gowda. It empowered the Chief Minister, N. Dharam Singh, to take appropriate action against him for "violation of the Civil Services rules of conduct." The Minister for Revenue, M.P. Prakash, told presspersons that the Law Department was looking into the statements of Mr. Jerome. Civil servants making statements against individuals in the media and appearing on television amounted to violation of rules. Mr. Jerome had sought permission from the Chief Secretary, K.K. Misra, to file a defamation suit against Mr. Deve Gowda who had levelled charges against him with regard to land dealings involving the BDA. Earlier, the Chief Minister disapproved of Mr. Jerome's statement.
