01-DEC-2018: Aligarh Commissioners Interactive Session with AMU Students
Aligarh, December 1: Indian Bureaucracy owes its allegiance to the basic structure of the constitution, the ideals enshrined in the preamble and the ideas constitute India like Sovereign, Socialist, Secular, Democratic, Republic. India is a secular state which clearly means we respect all the religions. To serve India is to serve millions of downtrodden, said Mr Ajay Deep Singh (IAS), Commissioner, Aligarh while speaking at an interactive session organized by the Department of Political Science. The talk on Indian Bureaucracy and its Responsibility saw a huge turnout despite exams.
Mr Singh also gave tips to the students who intend to write UPSC exam. The students asked numerous questions ranging from political pressure to International ranking of Indian Bureaucracy to Waqf property.
Welcoming the guests, Chairperson Prof Nigar Zuberi pointed out, In academic life it is important to take a pause from political philosophy, administrative theory and engage with voices coming from ground, from administration, from the people who are in public dealing, to have a meaningful research.
Proposing vote of thanks Prof. Asmer Beg made a pertinent observation that many bureaucrats are openly taking sides with political groups, though they are less in number but they have a large demonstrative effect. He remarked that generally bureaucrats are good at the art of deception but the Commissioner Mr Singh spoke straight from heart
This interactive session was in continuance with the series of lectures which started recently. Before Mr Ajay Deep Singh, department also invited Dr. Atul Mishra from Shiv Nadar University, Noida, to deliver a talk on Essentials of Academic Writing in Social Sciences.
The Department has also started Saturday Discussion Group where scholars make presentations on various contemporary political issues.
