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.

Among the IAS officers, secretary (irrigation) M P Agarwal has been posted as divisional commissioner of Saharanpur, while member (judicial) UP revenue board Shyam Narain Tripathi has been made CEO of Kashi Vishwanath temple.

Special secretary (horticulture) Rajiv Rautela has been posted as DM of Fatehpur. DM Sultanpur Aditi Singh has been appointed as the additional managing director of UP state road transport corporation (UPSRTC) and special secretary (dairy development) S Rajalingam takes over Aditi Singh.

CEO Greater Noida Rama Raman has been relieved of the post and has been replaced by secretary (higher education) Anil Garg. Rama Raman would continue to hold the charge of NOIDA and Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority.

Special secretary (APC branch) Sharad Kumar Singh has been appointed as DM Ballia, Commissioner Chitrakoot Kalpana Awasthi and DM Sonbhadra Sanjay Kumar has been shifted to Allahabad. DM Allahabad Kaushal Raj Sharma have been put on the waitlist.

In IPS transfers, additional director-general (ADG) housing Brij Raj has been transferred to Meerut's police training school, whereas IG Gorakhpur zone Amitabh Yash has been shifted to technical services in the same capacity. Yash would be replaced by IG technical services P C Meena.

IG public grievance Mutha Ashok Jain has been transferred to vigilance establishment and IG telecom Pramod Kumar Mishra has been shifted to police welfare.

IG women cell Navneet Sikera has been given additional charge of public grievances. Commandant 8th PAC Vijay Yadav has been posted as superintendent of police, Mau.

Aparna Kumar, who was on the wait list, has been posted as Commandant 10 PAC. SP (Sultanpur) Sonia Singh has been shifted to intelligence department, Lucknow.
