S. Sasikanth Senthil, a 2009 batch Karnataka cadre IAS officer and Deputy Commissioner of Dakshina Kannada district, has resigned from the civil services on Friday.
In a note here, he said it was “unethical” on his part to continue as civil servant when “fundamental building blocks of diverse democracy are being compromised”.
The coming days would present extremely difficult challenges in the basic fabric of the Nation. As such it would be better to be outside IAS to continue his work, Mr. Senthil said.
The 40-year-old Mr. Senthil from the 2009 batch hails from Tamil Nadu. He passed out of BE (Electronics) course in first division from the Regional Engineering College of Bharathidasan University, Tiruchirapalli.
