UP CM Akhilesh Yadav has defended the suspension of IAS officer ,Durga Shakti Nagpal, was in the interest of maintaining communal harmony in the region and discarded allegations that she was suspended for taking on the sand mafias.
These were his statements even as the Gautam Budh Nagar District Magistrate report said that the officer did not order the demolition of a portion of the mosque as alleged by the Uttar Pradesh government and interestingly now the SP wants the District Magistrate be suspended for maintaining that Durga Nagpal had not ordered demolition of Mosque wall.
Now that is the advantage of being a self-proclaimed Secular Party. 🙂
Akhilesh run SP govt has been severely criticized by the IAS body and retired bureaucrats over suspension of IAS officer Durga Shakti Nagpal, who had cracked down on the sand mafia in Greater Noida. The opposition parties accused Akhilesh Govt of favouring the sand mafias. They claimed the IAS officer was targeted because she red-flagged illegal sand mining being promoted in the area.
