Quit & Join Politics If You So Want, Aparajita Dares Odisha IAS Officers
Bhubaneswar: Taking a strong swipe at Naveen Patnaik’s governance model, Bhubaneswar MP Aparajita Sarangi said IAS officers should not violate their service and conduct rules by engaging in political activities.
Aparajita said in Odisha the bureaucracy was not running the government. “Rather it is one bureaucrat who is running the government,” she noted, stopping short of naming the officer. “This was never the situation. I have served the state government for long with Naveen Patnaik as CM. He used to meet us, guide us and advise us. It is no more the case. Hardly anyone can meet him now,” she maintained.
