Lakhimpur Kheri: The dispute between Lakhimpur DM Kinjal Singh and Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer P P Singh, arisen out over Dudhwa National Park, does not look like coming to an end.

Employees of the Kheri forest department and Dudhwa National Park grouped against Kinjal, a 2008-batch Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer and threatened to proceed on strike from Monday. Interestingly, higher officials are trying to suppress the issue so that it does not reach Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.
