Terming appointment of IAS officer Deepak Singhal on Chief Secretary’s post as “double standards” of Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, the BJP on Friday said when the CM said no to mafia-turned MLA Mukhtar Ansari’s party why has he appointed Singhal, who is facing a CBI inquiry in a scam related to Food and Civil Supplies department.
Why did the chief minister then raised hue and cry over merger of Quami Ekta Dal, which has mafia-turned MLA Mukhtar Ansari as prominent member, BJP spokesman Dr Chandramohan Singh asked? But now when the elections are near, the Chief Minister posted Singhal on Chief Secretary’s chair, Dr Chandramohan further said.
He is the same IAS officer, who was not preferred by chief minister as Agriculture Production Commissioner, the BJP spokesman said and added he is the same IAS officer, whom the state government appointed Principal Secretary Home but shunted him out only a few weeks after his appointment and was appointed as principal secretary Irrigation, the department headed by CM’s uncle Shivpal Yadav.
This only speaks of double standards of the chief minister, the BJP spokesman said. The CM it seems had staged a drama and had tried to showcase his clean image by not merging QED into SP but when it has come to shielding corrupt officer, he has shook hands with his uncle Shivpal, Dr Chandramohan said.
