Bihar: Senior Bihar IAS officer resigns over supersession
Patna:A senior Bihar IAS officer Sudhir Kumar Rakesh has offered to resign reportedly miffed over ignoring his seniority due to structural changes in the bureaucratic set-up and growing ‘interference’ from several quarters in the functioning of departments.
Rakesh, a 1983 batch IAS officer, met Chief Secretary Anjani Kumar Singh and offered to resign.
Rakesh is the Principal Secretary of Panchayati Raj department. He had earlier served as Chief Electoral Officer and recently during Bihar poll he was made the Home Secretary by the Election Commission of India.
Appointment of a junior officer as the Director of the Bihar Vikas Mission, the nodal agency to execute “seven resolves” of the CM in next five year has angered many senior IAS officers in Bihar. Many senior officers will have to work under the mission which will be looked after by election strategist Prashant Kishor.
