UP cadre IAS Sanjay Prasad virtually asked votes for Mayawati's party

IT IS not unusual that some senior bureaucrats find it tough to differentiate whether they work for the government or for the ruling party. But for Sanjay Prasad, a 1995 batch Uttar Pradesh cadre IAS and current district magistrate of Allahabad, his leaning towards the party-in-power was captured by TV channels. According to media reports, Prasad virtually sought votes for Mayawati-led BSP in a meeting with district officers convened to review the progress of the state government’s ambitious Kanshiram Yojna for the urban poor. But TV camera captured his bytes which were later telecast repeatedly.

Prasad argued that there is no point in spending Rs 25 crore if the government does not even get the votes of 1,500 families! After the expose, main opposition party of Uttar Pradesh Samajwadi Party slammed Mayawati government for using the bureaucrats as party agents.
A postgraduate in geography, Mr Prasad had earlier served as district magistrate of Agra, Maharajganj and Ghazipur.
