25 IAS transferred in Maharashtra
The Maharashtra state government on Monday transferred 25 IAS officers including Panvel Municipal Commissioner Sudhakar Shinde. The BJP-ruled civic body had, last month, passed a no-confidence motion against Shinde. The transfer comes on the backdrop of a state government order which had praised Shinde’s work. The order was issued by the Urban Development Department headed by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. Sinde’s working style had reportedly not gone down well the BJP corporators. Many corporators had complained that Shinde was taking unilateral decisions without consulting the elected representatives.
