Wasteful security

Sir, — The system of security classification continues to be ad hoc and arbitrary.

Any officer in a position of responsibility may decide, in his wisdom, to give any document a "classified" categorisation, and none but an officer senior to him has the power to change the classification.

Security with regard to persons of importance is also relevant. The security system always comes in the way whenever a VIP is concerned and the security personnel without the knowledge of the VIP harass people.

There is no other democracy in the world where a Minister, as soon as he is sworn in, changes his values, behaves like a superman.

The feudal mentality is still continuing and the Governments are taking shelter under the guise of "security" and wasting public money for non-productive purpose.

Agarala Easwara Reddi,

Tirupati, A.P.
