Hyderabad: The director of the Telangana State Police Academy, V.K. Singh, has written to the ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) seeking permission to retire early stating he had failed his ambitions to change the police system.
In a notice addressed to the Union Home secretary, Mr. Singh said he was an IPS officer of the 1987 regular recruit of Telangana cadre. “I joined the police with great hopes to change the police system but I think I have failed in my ambitions. The Telangana government has also not been much impressed with my services. I have my considered opinion that I should not be a burden on the government,” the notice said.
As he wanted to work for the people and serve the state, he has decided to retire from 2 October, Mahatma Gandhi's birth anniversary.
“I want to make it clear that I have nothing against any government. I thank the Telangana government for the best
treatment they have given me. The police service, if done with a sense of justice and a clear conscience, is just unmatchable,” he said.
He further said, “If anybody wants to join the government service, my advice is he must join only the police. I have also learned many valuable lessons in my decades of service. One of that is integrity, fair play, and hard work is not the only thing required to be successful. There are many other attributes, too.”
The officer has showed dissent ever since he was transferred from the post of Director General Prisons. He is known for a number of reforms introduced in the jails in Telangana right from employments to yoga classes for the inmates
