Maharathy suspends two officers during surprise visit to Salepur

Salepur: Panchaytiraj Minister Pradeep Maharathy, who made a surprise visit to Salepur block today, got furious after finding some officers missing on duty. After a preliminary probe, he ordered the suspension of ABDO Prasanna Kumar Mallick and Accounts Officer Bharati Priyadarshini Priyambada for dereliction in duty.

In addition, Maharathy has issued show-cause notices to 8 employees – BDO, GPEO, AEO, AE, JE and 3 GPTAs for remaining absent from duty.

“If the situation is like this in coastal districts, one can imagine what it would be like in remote districts of the state,” lamented Mr. Maharathy.
