Minister for Rural Development and Panchayat Mahendra Singh Sisodia wrote a letter to the Shivpuri collector to take action against Superintendent of Police Rajesh Singh Chandel for transferring police inspectors without his approval.
They have opened a front against the administration. The Panchayat Minister said that the officers are becoming autocratic. The Panchayat Minister also told the Chief Secretary of the state, Iqbal Singh Bains, to be autocratic.
Letter of Sisodia, who is also district in-charge minister of Shivpuri, caused a flutter in the government more because he has also sent letter copy to the Union minister Jyotiraditya Scindia besides additional chief secretary (ACS), Home Rajesh Rajora.
Sisodia’s letter (dated August 29, 2022) addressed to Shivpuri collector Akshay Kumar Singh is “Superintendent of police has posted police stations in-charge without his (Sisodia’s) approval which is not only against the rules but also it indicates his arbitrary use of power. Hence, you have to take action against him.”
Recently, Shivpuri district SP Rajesh Singh Chandel transferred the TI of 10 police stations. The Panchayat Minister got angry about this. The Panchayat Minister alleges that the station in-charges were appointed without taking his approval.
After that, he had written a letter to Shivpuri district collector Akshay Kumar Singh on August 29, asking for a list of the transferred police station in-charges, but the collector did not respond.
According to some reliable sources related to the administration department, all 10 police stations are situated in either the police stations of border areas or the check posts of other states or police stations and outposts where the sand mafia are situated.
Akshay Kumar Singh, Collector Shivpuri said that Discussions have been held with the Minister in this regard. Taking his letter seriously, action will be taken as per the rules. It is not true that action is not taken as per the rules on the instructions of the Minister-in-Charge.
