After Shivpal, Prajapati, will Netaji turn Singhal’s saviour?
Lucknow: The Murphy's law says if things can go bad these may go worse. It proved right during the course of recent developments in Uttar Pradesh.
The ruling Samajwadi Party President Mulayam Singh Yadav ensured Statusquo-ante prevailed after six days of political turmoil in Uttar Pradesh. Senior party leader Shivpal Singh Yadav managed back his portfolios except one but two more. Gayatri Prajapati also back in the cabinet.
The authority of Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav suffered a blow once again is for everyone to see. Such scenario gives rise to new round of rumour mongering which says if everyone comes back then why not the former Chief Secretary Deepak Singhal.
Though being discussed in the lighter manner but it , at least, makes a good subject on the gossip charts at the moment. The sudden removal of Singhal may not be a political decision in true sense but it was also taken by Akhilesh and since all his decision are being reversed, such speculation is natural and timely also. Moreover, in the way, Singhal was seen in New Delhi doing rounds of Mulayam's residence, one can easily put him in other category.
According to a SP leader, Akhilesh wanted to get rid of tainted persons from the government hence removed the former Mining minister Gayatri Prajapati in the wake of CBI probe in the illegal mining. Same goes with Singhal who was never the first choice of the Chief Minister in the first place and the former did not help his cause further by indulging in some loose talks on many occasions.
It is a different matter and few would know that contrary to many his batch mates or even juniors, he did not get impaneled as the secretary or even Additional Secretary at Government of India. He had some little posts left to grab on including the one he was currently posted.
Singhal is replaced by Rahul Bhatnagar, who generally holds a clean image as compared to his predecessor but as Murphy's law suggest, anything is possible in the present political scenario of Uttar Pradesh.
