Lucknow: Taking advantage of the transfer policy, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has taken seriously the uproar between the minister and the department heads over the arbitrary transfers. It is believed that this will affect many other departments including health and public works. Big steps can also be taken in the Animal Husbandry Department scam. Some officers may be removed and sent to less important posts.
The Chief Minister has taken a tough stand on the irregularities of transfer and fraud in the Animal Husbandry Department. He has constituted a committee of senior IAS officers and ordered to submit a report on the whole matter in two days. There is a discussion in the corridors of the government that IAS officers may soon be transferred on a large scale to remove such officers. For this, preparations are being made at the top level.
Regarding the transfers in the Health Department, Deputy Chief Minister Brajesh Pathak has written a letter expressing his dissatisfaction over the transfers under the leadership of Additional Chief Health Secretary Amit Mohan Prasad. It was said that there were all kinds of mistakes in it. Amit Mohan Prasad did not respond even after seeking clarification. When the matter became practice, the central leadership has investigated the matter. The Chief Minister has entrusted the responsibility of health to the Chief Secretary and APC to investigate the transfers in the Public Works Department.
On the instructions of the Chief Minister, Animal Husbandry Minister Dharampal Singh handed over the investigation of the scam of about five crore rupees to the Additional Chief Secretary. Senior officers of the department are accused of carrying out the scam. It is believed that as soon as the report is received, the Chief Minister will take strict action against the careless bureaucrats.
