Lko commissioner in need of camp office, municipal boss too without one
Lucknow: Commissioner Ranjan Kumar, 2000-batch IAS officerposted in state capital Lucknow, Municipal Commissioner Ajay Kumar Dwivedi of 2015 batch do not have their own camp office bungalow while the District Magistrate of Lucknow has a camp office bungalow where he performs government work even late at night.
In Lucknow, all the commissioners and municipal commissioners came and went, but no one paid any attention to this because the state property department provides the same with ease and if the IAS does not live next to the state property then his first choice is CSI tower or prefers his private residence. But Lucknow’s present Commissioner Ranjan Kumar also General Secretary of IAS Association, noted that if such a house would be provided for the commissioner from where he could do government work even at night, then it would be better for him like that provided to Commissioner and DM in districts of state.
In view of this, the State Property Department had allotted A3 in Butler Palace Colony on June 1, which was entrusted to the LDA for its renovation so that it could be prepared as a Commissioner’s camp office, for which a sum of Rs 81 lakh was also proposed for its repair.
But even before the work could begin in this direction, Chief Engineer of LDA Indu Shekhar Singh raised objection on the file on June 21, refusing to give the amount for infrastructure head as he had come to know earlier that the Commissioner had sent a report against him to government and after the board meeting of LDA on June 22, Principal Secretary Housing Nitin Ramesh Gokarn would remove him from the post.
According to bureaucrats, the Chief Engineer of LDA has been removed due to several other investigations, reports of which is available with the government, but at the same time, the file of renovation of residence of Lucknow Commissioner and General Secretary of IAS Association, Lucknow Ranjan Kumar was made viral which is not correct as LDA VC Akshay Tripathi, Commissioner Ranjan Kumar, Principal Secretary Housing Nitin Ramesh Gokarn are very responsible officers.
