For Commenting on Facebook 2 govt. officials suspended by Bihar Government

Arun Narayan and Musafir Baitha, both assistants in the department of Hindi publication
both are suspended for writing, expressing views on Facebook against Nitish Kumar that is Bihar Government.

Both were suspended by Council chairman Tarakant Jha, a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader.

Arun Narayan had commented against the termination of rebel Janata Dal-United's Prem Kumar Mani from the Bihar Legislative Council.

Musafir Baitha is accused of starting a discussion on Facebook about how administrative lethargy in the Council had caused suffering to employees.
Baitha had vented his frustration on the way he was harassed for getting loan on his GPF money.

they were suspended because of violation of service rules.

Now the time has come to change the service rules as well as official secrecy act.

What happened to Freedom of Speech?

I hope both suspended officials will appeal to High Court.

Freedom of Speech is the birth right of Every Indian and a fundamental right.

Very funny! We seem to live in a country that ignores scams everywhere and focusses on trivial issues!!
Our government is really something.
