You can never plan the future by the past

I can’t forget Feb 2 ,07 as was delighted after hearing his speech and vision. Chief Minister, Shri Shivraj Singh Chowan of my state -Madhya Pradesh was welcoming the delegates who came from all over the country and dwelt at length on the initiative taken by Madhya Pradesh government towards e-governance.
He was addressing the 10th National E-governance Conference in Vidhansabha Bhawan premise. He called for greater public awareness about e-governance to provide corruption-free and more efficient administration.
The attendance was unprecedented, as in previous nine conferences the number of delegates never crossed 350 but in MP 1350 delegates participated. Apart from making government official’s computer savvy he stressed and made essential to enhance awareness among people about corruption.Union Minister of State for Suresh Pachouri; MP Minister for IT Vijayvargiya; CS R.C. Sahni; PS, IT ; Special Secretary in the Union Ministry of IT and Additional Secretary in the Union Ministry of Personnel R.C. Chandrashekhar and Rahul Sareen were there on that occasion.
He informed about the revised IT policy by launching Samadhan Online and Cyber Treasury, he expreesed his views on the strengths of e-governance which was increasing the transparency as computerization network helps in better financial and budgetary control.
He had won hearts when he said"E-democracy is necessary for e-governance,Internet is a turning point in the history of human civilization and it is next only to writing in the list of human achievements.
Why a person of his vision gets caught under the charge of corruption for mere 4 dumpers ? Questions are being raised about the chief minister and his family amassing wealth disproportionate to their known sources of income. Has credibility taken a nosedive?
Lokayukta superintendent of police K.K. Lohani registered the case after Bhopal district judge R.K. Bhave yesterday directed the anti-corruption body to book the Madhya Pradesh leader, his wife Sadhna and four others under the Criminal Procedure Code.The order for the probe came after Ramesh Sahu, a “social worker”, urged the Lokayukta to register a case against Chauhan, his wife and the others for extending undue favours to cement company JP Associates in Rewa district by allotting prime land.
