Chandigarh, September 8
Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh right now revoked the transfers of 23 income officers, hours after Additional Chief Secretary Vishwajit Khanna had issued the orders following clearance from Revenue Minister Gurpreet Singh Kangar.
The orders to shift 10 tehsildars and 13 naib tehsildars have been reportedly cancelled attributable to resentment amongst MLAs and DCs. A number of MLAs are even learnt to have accused Kangar of getting “ulterior motives”.
Kangar mentioned he was unaware of the CM having stayed the transfers.
The motive for the speedy political and administrative uproar was that these income officers have been enjoying a vital function in Covid administration, it’s learnt. — TNS
