IPS officer Rajesh Hingankar transferred from Dhar, case against Qazi was registered in his tenure

Rajesh Hingankar, an officer of Indian Police Service (IPS), has been shifted from Dhar. He has been posted as SP, Satna.

Hingankar was district police chief in Dhar, when Shahar Qazi was booked for sedition. This was an unusual case and the issue was raised in Assembly.

It was a questionable decision of the local administration. The reason was that even if slogans were raised during a rally, instead of booking those youth, the case against Qazi was unprecedented.

It showed deep bias. While right-wing groups have taken out processions with swords and have wielded weapons public, no case is registered.

Clearly, it was either unusual appeasement of BJP's core constituency or right-wing sympathies within administration. It is not clear who dared to take action against the Shahar Qazi, a religious post.

Home minister Babulal Gaur said that he would look into it, and would take corrective measures. In all, 12 IPS officers have been transferred in the latest round of administrative reshuffle in MP.

Privilege motion to be brought against MP IAS officer Tejaswi S Naik!

Tejaswi S Naik, an officer of Indian Administrative Service (IAS) is under fire and may soon face a privilege motion in Assembly.

Naik who is a 2009 batch IAS officer, is posted as Commissioner of Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC).

But the IAS officer has all the MLAs, irrespective of their parties, gunning for him. The reason is 'his attitude'.

In Assembly, the MLAs of Congress and BJP joined hands over this issue. Vishwas Sarang said that he would bring the privilege motion.

He said that Naik called a meeting of legislators but himself didn't attend it. Also, MLAs don't like him for being 'arrogant'. There is no smoke without fire. Else, MLAs across political lines, won't have come together on the issue. Let's see how far it goes.
