UP DGP Javeed Ahmed was shunted out by the Yogi Adityanath on Friday which led the transfer of 12 IPS officers.
During the past one month, as a chief minister of India’s Most populous state Uttar Pradesh, he has fulfilled the Bhartiya Janta Party’s (BJP) Pre-poll promises, including a crop loan waiver of over Rs 36,000 crore, ‘Power to All’, closure of illegal slaughterhouses, formation of anti-Romeo squads, and institution of inquiry on the previous government’s projects with regards to extravagance and alleged corruption.
During the recent assembly polls, the BJP had petitioned the Election Commission to remove Ahmed, alleging that he was working at the behest of the then Samajwadi Party government.
1980-batch IPS officer Sulkan Singh, who was DG (Training), will replace Ahmed, a 1984-batch IPS officer, who has been shifted as the DG of Uttar Pradesh Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC), a senior Home department official.
Akhilesh Yadav, on taking over as the UP chief minister on March 15, 2012, had effected the transfer of over 1,000 senior administrative and police officials within a month of taking oath. A majority of those reshuffled were high-rank bureaucrats reckoned loyalists of the previous Mayawati-led BSP regime.
The chief minister has not minced words in sending out a strong message that law and order was his government’s top priority and any laxity in this regard would not be tolerated.
