Dalit IAS babu in MP alleges bias, threatens suicide

Bhopal, Sept., 26 : A Dalit IAS officer in Madhya Pradesh alleging denial of promotion even after he was cleared in a graft case has threatened to commit suicide if the state government takes any disciplinary action against him. 
Ramesh Thete (51), a controversial IAS officer of 1993 batch, was suspended in a bribery case in 2002 and was reinstated in May this year after successfully challenging his suspension in the Supreme Court.
Thete alleged the government was not promoting him even after his reinstatement. He is posted as an under secretary in the Narmada Valley Development Authority (NVDA). Thete's batch mates have already been promoted as secretary in the state.
Sources said some senior officers warned Thete that he would have to face disciplinary action if he refused to restrain himself. Two days back, Thete sought an appointment with the chief secretary, which was reportedly denied.
