The Railway ministry has decided to take disciplinary action against Union minister Jitendra Singh’s OSD for casting aspersions against its minister Piyush Goyal and questioning the wisdom of senior government officials in an article, according to official documents.
Railway Board Secretary Ranjanesh Sahai has written to the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) asking for the immediate repatriation of Sanjiv Kumar, a 2005 batch officer of the Indian Railway Personnel Service (IRPS) for “breach of official decorum and misconduct”.
Kumar is the Officer on Special Duty (OSD) to Jitendra Singh, who holds multiple portfolios, including minister of state in the Prime Minister’s Office and for Development of North Eastern Region.
“A case of breach of official decorum and misconduct of Sanjiv Kumar, IRPS, has been brought to the notice of railway board. Sanjiv Kumar has authored an article, published by www.railsamachar.com and www.nationalwheels.com,” Sahai wrote in his letter to the DoPT. Read More
