Bangalore: The recent suspension of IAS officer Durga Shakti Nagpal has steered issues in Uttar Pradesh, as questions are being raised over the rise in the suspension rate of IAS officers. Off Late the country has witnessed over 200 suspensions in the past 20 years, reports Sidharth Pandey of NDTV.

Motive behind the suspension of so many officers is still not known. According to IAS Officers Association, Uttar Pradesh leads the list with over 105 suspensions, out of which 100 suspensions were let off as there was no evidence pertaining to the officer’s wrongdoing.

 UP is being criticized by leading political parties for a clear explanation to be given over the suspension of Nagpal, as she has a clear track record throughout her career. She was removed immediately after she ordered villagers at Kadalpur Noida to demolish a Mosque complex wall, which is being constructed on government land.

Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav quoted, saying "Any officer, who makes a mistake, will be punished, like children are punished in school" and this is how a government functions, he added. The Samajwadi Party government has filed a 10-page chargesheet accusing Nagpal for lack of administrative acumen.
