The dispute between the Center and the Bengal government continues. Now, there is a possibility of a confrontation between the two to call the Chief Secretary to Delhi. According to sources, Mamta Banerjee’s government is not relieving her. Let us tell you that Chief Secretary Alapan Bandyopadhyay was ordered by the Center to report in Delhi by 10 am on May 31. But the state government has not relieved them yet.
Alapan Bandyopadhyay will also take part in a meeting to be held under the leadership of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday. Issues related to the Yas Cyclone and Corona epidemic are to be discussed in that meeting. Here, given the strict attitude of the Center, it is believed that the Bengal government can be issued a directive from the Center for not relieving Alapan. Let us tell you that former top bureaucrats and legal experts on this issue believe that it may be difficult for the central government to comply with its order to call West Bengal Chief Secretary Alapan Bandyopadhyay on the day of his retirement.
Because the state government can refuse to discharge them by exercising their rights. It is noteworthy that the Center ordered the call of Bandyopadhyay to Delhi after a few hours of the dispute arising out of the Chief Minister settling the Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on a cyclonic storm in just 15 minutes.
A few days earlier, a central order was issued to extend Bandyopadhyay’s term to three months to help combat the Kovid-19 epidemic in the state. Former Secretary to the Government of India, Jawahar Sarkar said, “The state government can respond politely by outlining the All India Service Rules governing such transfers.”
He said that it is difficult for the Center to unilaterally transfer an IAS or IPS officer who is not under his control but under another government within the Union. Under Rule 6 (1) of deputation of officers of the All India Service, deputation of officer of a cadre of a State may be made with the consent of the State concerned at the Center or other State or Public Undertaking.
