Senior bureaucrats in AP looking out for central deputation
It will not be the same for the bureaucrats who play a vital role in the state’s administration when YS Jagan wins the election and becomes the next Chief Minister. With almost 40 days to go before the Assembly and General elections results are out, YS Jagan and his party cadre are calming that Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy will be the Chief Minister. This taboo is now forcing many of the senior IAS officers to plan for a Central Deputation.
The video showing the I-Pac team wishing him to be the best Chief Minister of AP is being extensively circulated on social media which has created quite a hype for the Opposition leader. If the inside reports are to be believed, the team has gifted YS Jagan with a nameplate with his name carved, addressing him as the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh. For various reasons, this hasn't gone down well with the senior bureaucrats who are planning to seek a Central Deputation.
Seems like the clashes and violence in the state, along with the EC's order on transfers by colluding with the BJP at the Centre, has created a negative impact on Jagan's governance for the bureaucrats that they can’t contribute much under such a CM, who is as inexperienced as Jagan. When it comes to a Chief Minister like Chandrababu Naidu, he had a great team of bureaucrats to help him implement his vision. IAS officers always had the freedom to opine on things and suggest changes in the implementation of welfare schemes.
And now, the same bureaucrats are speculating if they have such association with Jagan if he becomes the next CM. However, we all should wait until May 23rd, the day which decides the fortune of the state.
