Centre curtails Prabhu’s PS tenure
An IAS officer, posted as Private Secretary to Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu, has been put on ‘compulsory wait’ just five months after his appointment.
No reasons were given for the decision regarding Ashish Madhaorao More belonging to Union territories cadre which was taken by the Appointments Committee of Cabinet headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The Appointments Committee of Cabinet has approved Railways Ministry’s proposal for curtailment of More’s tenure and placing him on ‘compulsory wait’, an order issued today by Department of Personnel and Training said.
More, a 2005 batch IAS officer, was on July 1, appointed as PS to Prabhu for a period of five years or on co-terminus basis with the Minister’s tenure.
