After sacking two ministers, UP CM Akhilesh Yadav now removed MSY’s trustworthy chief secretary Deepak Singhal.
This move is considered to be aimed at boosting the ruling Samajvadi Party’s image ahead of the next year’s election. Deepak was considered to be in really close terms with Mulayam Singh Yadav and Shivpal Yadav. Senior IAS officer Rahul Bhatnagar is now appointed as the new chief secretary of the state. This came out to be a shocking decision for the state. Singhal’s removal was already expected by the party as according to the inside details, CM Akhilesh Yadav was not really happy with Deepak’s appointment at the earliest but he was pressurized by MSY and Shivpal Yadav as Deepak was in close relations with them.
While News Leak Centre contacted Deepak Singhal, he was busy taking a official meeting in Noida and is unaware of his removal. This news will certainly come out to be a shock for Deepak as well. Deepak Singhal was staying in Noida from last two days.
