CHHATTISGARH – The District Magistrate of Bastar district in Chhattisgarh was on Friday served a notice for wearing sunglasses while receiving Prime Minister Narendra Modi last week.

The Raman Singh government in Chhattisgarh issued a notice to IAS officer Amit Kataria, asking him to explain why he defied the protocol while welcoming Modi to Bastar, one of the largest districts in India.

Warning Kataria against such acts in future, the notice asks him to show "integrity and devotion" towards his duty. "The act (of wearing sunglasses) is in violation of the Section 3(1) of the All India Services (Conduct) Rules, 1968," the notice said.

The protocol states that every member of the service shall at all times maintain absolute integrity and devotion to duty and shall do nothing which is unbecoming of a member of the service.

Dantewada falls in Bastar district where PM Modi attended a huge public rally last Saturday vowing to weed out the Maoist menace from the country. He also signed two MoUs for setting up a steel plant in the Bastar region and laying the second phase of Rowghat-Jagdalpur railway line.

The visit was disrupted with Maoists taking nearly 500 people planning to attend Modi's rally hostage in Marenga and adjoining villages in the neighbouring Sukma district of Chhattisgarh.
