Noida DM transferred for lapse in Covid-19 management

Lucknow: Suhas LY, a 2007 batch IAS officer, has been made the new District Magistrate of Noida. He will replace BN Singh who has been sent to the Board of Revenue.

A video clip of the Chief Minister mounting a scathing attack on Singh went viral on social media

Singh was removed after Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath gave him a dressing down during a review meeting in Noida on Monday. The Chief Minister was particularly angry over the lapse made by Singh in management of the coronavirus crisis.

This comes after the chief minister reprimanded BN Singh for the district’s coronavirus cases which are in the highest in entire Uttar Pradesh. Singh, however, said that he had been working 18 hours a day to fulfill his duties but now did not wish to continue in the district due to accusations of incapability.

During an inspection of different places in Gautam Budhh Nagar, Yogi Adityanath said that the current situation was a result of lax imposition of the lockdown in the district.

In his leave application, BN Singh had urged the Uttar Pradesh Chief Secretary for the appointment of another officer in his place so that there was no effect on the ongoing efforts to contain the coronavirus spread in the district.

Sources said that though officers get long duration leave in normal circumstances, but approvals for the same are not possible during crisis situations.

As a video clip of the Chief Minister mounting a scathing attack on Singh went viral on social media, the latter sent a letter to the UP Chief Secretary seeking a three-month leave.

The letter, is it said, was leaked to the media by Singh.

Sources said that the Chief Minister has now instituted an inquiry against Singh before any action is taken against him.

Noida has so far reported the maximum number of positive coronavirus cases at 38.
