Social Activist seeks action against top UP bureaucrat

LUCKNOW || Activist Dr Nutan Thakur has sought enquiry and action against Principal secretary Panchayati Raj Chanchal Kumar for his extremely dubious role in promulgating a controversial Government Order.

utaIn her letter to Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, she said that the way Chanchal Kumar passed the GO dated 18 February 2016 is extreme haste thereby ending the supervisory role of Block Development Officers in the work of Assistant Development Officer (Panchayat) is extremely sensitive and is said to be motivated by misappropriating large money recently released under 14th Finance Commission.

Nutan said the way the Committee under chairmanship of Chief Secretary declared this GO against government’s established policy in its meeting on 03 June 2016, as stated in the minutes of the meeting dated 14 June 2016, raise serious questions on Chanchal Kumar’s role, which needs to be immediately enquired.
