Z- Director General of Police, Prisons, Punjab, Sept 2011- June 2012
It was the most challenging period of my carrier. The Punjab prisons were in a total mess when I took over in September. 2011. There were serious security problems, drug addiction and smuggling thereof. The factories were not working. There were possible cases of HIV+ and AIDS as also sexual abuse. I took up the task of total revamping of prison management and policy system after studying the behavioral and related aspects of prisoners and then brought about suitable structural reforms required for their reforms as also rehabilitation even after the release from prisons.
I took up the cause of drug addiction within the prisons as also outside with all my vigor which did create ripples in the society. Task of total cutting off the supply of drugs within the prisons was undertaken and drug de-addiction amongst inmates started with the help of the Punjab Health Department, NACO, UNODC and other organizations with excellent and commendable results. Opened drug de-addiction centers in all eight central jails of Punjab. Introduced Prisons administration on co-operative basis with inmates managing their own kitchen, Co-operative stores, Health, Hygiene, Sports, Maintenance of places of worship inside the jails, Libraries and Gyms etc. Several vocational courses were also started. Games were given top most attention with the first ever jail Olympics being organized. Classes of Yoga, Art of living, Health Check-ups were also started with the help from NGOs etc.
Retired in June 2012 and joined the core advisory group of Anna Hazare and rose to become one of his top advisor and executors. When Anna decided to move back to his native place in Maharashtra and started disassociating himself with the movement, I joined a national level company as Business Development Advisor to the Chairman and M.D. Worked there for slightly under one year.
I resigned and came back to Chandigarh and Punjab because my anti drug movement had been gaining momentum.
As on date I am considered to be one of the major anti drug and pro human rights activists of the country and I am on the panel of number of bodies and working in close association with several national and international organizations. I am also a blogger and contribute to various journals and papers. I have also been assisting various national and international documentary and film makers. I am an apolitical individual with no alliance with any of the political parties.
I have been also aiding and advising the Drug Control and Anti Drug Agencies of a number of countries. Often I wonder why such agencies of Punjab and of India hesitate and shy away from taking my help despite the fact that I have been assisting these Anti Drug Authorities of some countries free of cost and only as a honourary and unofficial adviser. .
I intend continuing with my current profile till my death, either natural or unnatural, that is either dying a natural death of falling pray to the bullets and machinations of assassins belonging to or hired by any of such political parties which have been feeling threatened on account of my anti-drug campaign which has adversely affected their 'economic prospects', that is money making by way of indulging in smuggling of narcotics; opium derivatives, pharmaceuticals or synthetic drugs besides Cocaine, the latest entrant in Punjab.
Drug smuggling in and from Punjab has since captured international attention and a number of political leaders across the spectrum are feeling threatened. a number of officials of Punjab police, who do not mind licking the butts of such politicians are also mighty cut up. but who the hell bothers for them. I know my way and shall go on alone. Hardly any one has the guts to come and standby me and i do not care less.
