Major admin reshuffle in offing before election bugle blows in UP
Lucknow: With the election commission getting into poll-mode in UP, the state government is likely to effect a major administrative reshuffle before the poll-code comes into force.
According to sources, a list of civil servants who have completed more than two years of service on a post has been compiled and awaiting CM Yogi’s approval.
The EC usually shunts out DMs who have completed a two-year term. While there are several such officers who may come in the cross-hair of the commission, the buzz in the State capital is about its district magistrate, who has had an extended innings at the helm thanks to his proximity to powers that be.
With the sword of transfer hanging over their heads, some of these favourites have already started looking for a ‘safe’ assignment. The recent empanelment for central deputation for some seniors officers could not have come at a more opportune time who have now been waiting in the wings for quite sometime. Now is the time for them to make the switch.
