CS post aspirant goes to PMO, complains against Alok Ranjan
Lucknow: The race for the chair of Uttar Pradesh Chief Secretary is assuming murkier propositions as one aspirant of the post reached the PMO with complaints against the present incumbent Alok Ranjan.
Ranjan is retiring on March 31 but his popularity and pro-active steps he has taken towards the development projects have made him a strong candidate for an extension. It seems to have upset many of the contenders for the coveted bureaucratic position.
Some inside sources told 'newztrack.com' that a 1979-batch officer, who had been nursing the ambition to get to the top bureaucratic post for quite sometime, was so desperate that he made a complaint against Ranjan in the Prime Minister's Office.
He, however, had to return with not so much luck as he was clearly told that the court had already taken care of a particular matter he complained of.
Another aspirant is spreading all sorts of stories against prospective successors during private meetings with media persons and junior bureaucrats. He is the same officer who was denied posting as Agriculture Production Commissioner (APC) at the behest of Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.
