Message from Circle Secretary, AIAIPASP, Karnataka

Dear Friends,

I express my sincere thanks to our members of Karnataka Circle Branch Association for electing me as the Circle Secretary for a third consecutive term in the 34th Circle Conference held at Mandya on 24.01.2010 (Sunday). This time I was reluctant for it and wanted to handover the charge to some of the young and dynamic IP members. As the IP members were reluctant to take the charge, I changed my mind at the last moment when well-wishers persuaded me and propose my name once again. As there was another candidate of ASP cadre for the post, I thought of contesting the same and wanted to evaluate myself. Many members have voted in favour of me and given me the opportunity to serve another term consecutively. I accepted the responsibility to honour the wishes of all those members who wanted to see me as the Circle Secretary for the third time consecutively.

I was expecting a large gathering of our members in the 34th Circle Conference. But members did not turn up as I expected. Sri Swamy ASP Mandya and his team organized the conference in a very grand manner and I am sure that all the members attended were happy with the arrangements. I felt unhappy that expected number of members did not join the Circle Conference, which is held in a gap of two years' period.

My success or failure in the responsibility given to me will depend on how much support I get from all our members. I will always expect guidance through feedback and suggestions from our members, which will help me, carry out the activities of the Association effectively.

This time, I wish to give more stress on training of Inspectorial staff on computer and computerization related aspects keeping in view the fact that Department has initiated the process of supplying Laptop to IPs/ ASPs in Sub-Divisions.

During the last circle conference it was resolved to create a blogspot of our Association of Karnataka branch and the responsibility was given to Sri Naveen V L Manager NSPC Udupi- Manipal. I sincerely thank Mr Naveen V L for his contribution as he has done his job with in no time. Our blogspot is

I would like to reiterate that the issues common to all our members will have an interest in me. Personal matters will get last priority.

The complete list of new set of Office-bearers and CWC members will be posted in the blog and published in next issue of Anche Nirikshak.

Thanking you all for reposing faith in me.
