Sagayam IAS Speech: Tamil lives only in Government Schools
Ubagarampillai Sagayam usually referred to as U. Sagayam, is a civil servant in the state of Tamil Nadu in southern India, noted for his anti-corruption activities.


Sagayam, whose office door bears a sign reading “Reject bribes, hold your head high” , has repeatedly antagonized influential politicians and their supporters in Tamil Nadu. In 2011, he was appointed to oversee state elections in the Madurai district; his strict enforcement of the laws against vote-buying played a role in the change of state government. Beginning in 2012, his investigation of complaints of illegal granite-mining in the Madurai area led to charges against a number of politicians and businesses, including a mining company founded by a scion of one of Madurai’s most influential political families.
