Mayawati brings sweeping change in UP bureaucracy

The transition of power in Uttar Pradesh barely took hours to show visible effects as new Chief Minister Mayawati brought sweeping changes in the administration by suspending two senior IAS officers and transferring 100 other IAS (Indian Administrative Service), IPS (Indian Police Services) and State officials.

Lucknow, May 13 : The transition of power in Uttar Pradesh barely took hours to show visible effects as new Chief Minister Mayawati brought sweeping changes in the administration by suspending two senior IAS officers and transferring 100 other IAS (Indian Administrative Service), IPS (Indian Police Services) and State officials.

Barely after taking oath this afternoon, Mayawati went straight to her previous pet project- the multi-crore Ambedkar Udyan, where she announced suspension of two senior IAS officers- Principal Secretary of Public Works Department, S K Aggrawal and Vice President of Lucknow Development Authority (LDA), B. B. Singh- for "failing to maintain the park".

Later she announced transfer of 100 other officials that included 12 IAS officers and rest IPS and State Public Service officials. he has appointed Shashank Shekhar Singh as the Cabinet Secretary and the Vice-Chairman of the State Planning Commission.

Shailesh Krishna and V K Sharma, both senior IAS officers, have been named her Principal Secretaries.

Rohit Nandan, N S Ravi, Arun Sinha, Anoop Pandey and J S Deepak (all IAS officers) have been appointed as secretaries to the Chief Minister.

The axe has fallen on those officers, who are considered close to the outgoing Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav.

Mayawati has also stopped all the post retirement benefits to retired officer R S Yadav for dereliction of duty by not cleaning the Ambedkar park, which was built by her when she was in power in 2001-02.

"I had visited the park and had noticed that it was not maintained nicely. I consider these officers responsible for this and so I am suspending them," Mayawati said.

A confident and composed Mayawati, who secured a simple majority in the just concluded assembly election in the State by winning 206 seats, had earlier in the day, said that she would be acting tough on those irresponsible and corrupt officers and would not punish them by merely transferring them.

"I would rather suspend them and launch probe against them," she had said during a press conference.

Mayawati's swift and tough action has already sent the official community in tizzy and administrative circles are witnessing a hustle and bustle of activity.

Several previously halted projects are being restarted to please the new political dispensation.
