All about Maya: IAS, IPS face transfers in UP

In yet another instance of bureaucrats taking the wrath of politicians, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Ms Mayawati, who showed a poor political show during the Lok Sabha elections, finally used the time-tested weapon of transfers to punish babus. In fact, in a major administrative reshuffle, UP government transferred 10 IAS officials on Friday after it had transferred 34 IPS officers, including police chiefs of 17 districts, media reports said on late Saturday. The action includes the transfer of Rae Bareilly DM Anita C Meshram, Kanpur divisional commissioner Dinesh Singh and chief development officer Agra Surendra Singh. Babu Blogger’s take: Let’s give more power to the state chief secretaries and cabinet secretary at the Centre in transfer-related matters. In many cases, transfers do demoralize efficient bureaucrats.

A former bureaucrat appointed as PDP's chief spokesman Former tourism secretary of J&K Naem Akhtar was appointed as Peoples Democratic Party's chief spokesman, PDP president Mehbooba Mufti announced on Saturday. Mr Akhtar, who took voluntary retirement in 2008, served in health, public works and several other departments of the state as a Kashmir Administrative Service (KAS) officer.
