GN Bureau | September 21, 2015
Even as Samajwadi Party president Mulayam Singh Yadav praised his son and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav for carrying out several development and infrastructure work, the UP government went on a major reshuffle drive of top officials on Sunday.
“Akhilesh has fulfilled all poll promises in just three years. Hum badhai detey hai itna mahatwa-purna karya kiya hai (I congratulate him for doing such an important work),” Mulayam said. Mulayam has been the most vocal critic of his son’s government.
Addressing a public meeting after inaugurating the first 660 MW unit of 1980 MW supercritical thermal power plant at Lalitpur, Mulayam blamed his own party leaders for not speaking about the good work done by Akhilesh.
Expressing concern over the illegal mining at various places in the state, Mulayam Singh pulled up the district magistrates (DMs) to tighten the noose against illegal activities.
As if on a cue, the UP government transferred 23 IAS and 42 IPS officers, including divisional commissioners, district magistrates, SSPs and SPs of several districts.
