Akhilesh Yadav transfers 116 IAS, IPS officials

Uttar Pradesh CM Akhilesh Yadav Saturday midnight undertook a major rejig of the state bureaucracy, transferring 56 Indian Administrative Service (IAS) and 60 Indian Police Service (IPS) officials.

In one of the biggest reshuffles of the state bureaucracy since he took over as chief minister March last, 31 districts got new district magistrates, while 41 districts got new police chiefs.

As the ruling Samajwadi Party office in the state capital received many complaints from the districts, party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav openly aired his displeasure at 'bad governance' at the district level. The bureaucracy was agog with rumours of a major make over.

‘The government has put seven district magistrates in waiting, while 17 district police chiefs have been attached to the director general of police in Lucknow. A govt spokesman said that of the fresh postings, 27 were promoted from the provincial police service (PPS) to IPS.
