Pan­vel civic chief, 24 other IAS of­fi­cers trans­ferred

The Free Press Journal - - MUMBAI -

The Ma­ha­rash­tra gov­ern­ment on Mon­day trans­ferred 25 IAS of­fi­cers, in­clud­ing Pan­vel mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Sud­hakar Shinde, against whom a no­con­fi­dence mo­tion was passed in the BJP-ruled civic body last month.

The state gov­ern­ment had last week is­sued an or­der sus­pend­ing the no-con­fi­dence mo­tion passed against Shinde in the civic body in ad­join­ing Raigad district. The or­der, which praised the work done by Shinde in Pan­vel, was is­sued by the ur­ban de­vel­op­ment depart­ment, which is headed by chief min­is­ter Deven­dra Fad­navis. Shinde's work­ing style had not gone down well the BJP cor­po­ra­tors, who said he took uni­lat­eral de­ci­sions and was not in­clined to con­sult the elected rep­re­sen­ta­tives. On March 26, the Pan­vel cor­po­ra­tion's gen­eral body had passed the res­o­lu­tion amidst protest by op­po­si­tion par­ties.

Among the other IAS of­fi­cers trans­ferred is Pune Col­lec­tor Dr Sau­rav Rao, who has been ap­pointed the Pune Mu­nic­i­pal Com­mis­sioner.
