The Posters have popped up across the city alleging a Rs 10,000 crore scam by 12 senior IAS officers, including the chief secretary K Gnanadesikan, the environment secretary Hans Raj Verma and Elcot’s managing director Atul Anand.

In a statement, the association’s president P W C Davidar and secretary K Rajaraman said the posters were intended to tarnish and defame individual officers without basis.

“It was highly demoralising for the IAS officers who have put in their sincere and dedicated service in bringing the state to its leading position in the country,” they said.

“We are sure that citizens of the State and the media appreciate this very well,” Davidar and Rajaraman further said.

“The association expresses its deep anguish and concern over the recent display of posters in public places with names and photographs of some of its members with allegations of corruption, without any basis,” they added.

“While we are open to constructive criticism, we condemn such efforts intended to tarnish and defame individual officers without basis. We are sure that citizens of the state and the media appreciate this very well,” they also said in their statement.
