In Pratapgarh, the government has suspended PCM officer SDM Vinit Kumar Upadhyay, who was in a meeting against the district magistrate. His suspension order was issued by Additional Chief Secretary and staffer Mukul Singhal. SDM Binit Upadhyay has accused DM Pratapgarh of not investigating the corruption.
Here’s the whole thing:
Additional SDM Binit Upadhyay sat in a dharna with his family on Friday, accusing several officials, including the DM, of corruption. The DM tried to persuade him, but he refused. Several SDMs and police officers were called to the scene. Everyone failed to understand SDM. Additional SDM Binit Upadhyay reached the DM camp office. He was accompanied by his wife and children. Additional SDMs have leveled serious allegations of corruption against Lalganj DM Dr Rupesh Kumar, ADM Shatruhan Vaishya and former SDM Mohanlal Gupta. The SDM also accused the DM and HillMK of suppressing the fraud of a college director in Lalganj.
The SDM says the said officials are corrupt. Along with this, efforts are being made to suppress the corruption of the subordinates. Media personnel arriving on additional SDM type notices were stopped outside the DM residence. The DM started to leave the house and left. On the other hand, a crowd of SP workers in support of SDM reached DM’s residence. SP personnel were also stopped outside the main gate. The workers started chanting slogans.
