Why has the government suddenly transferred IAS officer Subodh Yadav, special commissioner (solid waste management) of the BBMP? Thatâ€™s the question many irate resident welfare associations are asking, as the officer has been shunted out at a time when Bengaluru was brimming with garbage issue.
Yadav was transferred to Karnataka Public Service Commission (KPSC) as Secretary on Friday by the Karnataka government.
And while doing this, the government has not announced any replacement for the post of special commissioner.
A change.org petition started by Bengaluru Eco Team said, â€śHe was rattling the entire corrupt contract system and worked tirelessly to bring transparency. This transfer in 8 months is untimely and unjustified.â€ť
Subodh Yadav told The News Minute : â€śI received the order on Friday night only. I am not contesting the order. Everything I have done so far is in the public domain and people know my performance.â€ť
If one scrolls down his Twitter account, one would notice that Yadav had constantly tweeted about the condition of garbage and corporationâ€™s initiatives.
He had even pointed out on June 22 that despite many orders being issued, the implementation on the field was not good enough.
Huge amount of directions are issued covering more or less all aspects...still field performance is unsatisfactory....â€” Subodh Yadav IAS (@subodhyadav111) June 22, 2016
Kavitha Reddy a member of HSR layout resident welfare association has urged citizens to protest against his transfer.
Sneha Nandihal president of the Indiranagar Phase 1 RWA, said that the news of the transfer had come as a shock to many.
â€śYadav has been instrumental in solving many problems people faced. He also invited citizen participation and was transparent in his functioning,â€ť she said.
