Chennai: The Madras High Court said on Tuesday that it is expected to show courage on the discharge of its duty to public servants in the same way as the pilots of Indian Air Force destroyed terrorist bases in Pakistan. Judge SM Subramanian made this comment by rejecting a petition filed by a government health worker about his transfer. The male health worker protested the transfer while citing family problems. The court mentioned the bravery shown by Indian Air Force pilots in destroying terrorist bases in Pakistan. Referring to his order, the judge said that "in the discharge of their duty, the petitioner, the nurse, and the public servant, expect the performance of similar courage as the pilots of IAF who destroyed the bases of terrorist organization Jaish-e-Mohammed in Balakot, Pakistan."
He said that if this kind of feeling arises within the public services, then there will be no room for corrupted activities. R Srinivasan, who worked as a staff nurse in a government hospital in Coimbatore district, had protested his transfer in the Vellore district in the court. He had alleged that since he is an officer of the Tamil Nadu Government Contract Nurse Welfare Association, therefore, the authorities transferred him to avenge him. He had said that he has a son of 3.5 years and his family will be affected by the transfer. Rejecting these arguments, the judge said that those responsible for the care of the children and the aging parents should not be included in government service. Judge Subramanyam said that in these circumstances, the court advises the petitioner that he should go to the place where he has been transferred.
