Why did CM Yogi suddenly remove the police commissioner of Lucknow-Kanpur? the reason came

On Monday morning, CM Yogi suddenly removed the police commissioners of Lucknow and Kanpur from their posts and put them on the waiting list. This move of CM Yogi caused panic in the police and administrative circles. Everyone became curious to know why such a big step has been taken. Now the reason behind this move has come to the fore.

Lucknow Police Commissioner DK Thakur and Kanpur Police Commissioner Vijay Singh Meena have been blamed for the displeasure of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath due to the continuous jam on the Lucknow-Kanpur road and not making adequate arrangements for the Kanwar passengers. Both the commissioners have been removed only after the displeasure of the Chief Minister.

Seven IPS officers including Lucknow Police Commissioner DK Thakur and Kanpur Police Commissioner Vijay Singh Meena were transferred. Both ADG level officers DK Thakur and Vijay Singh Meena are currently kept waiting. Due to the displeasure of the Chief Minister on the problem of jam, on Monday, Additional Chief Secretary Home Avnish Kumar Awasthi and DGP Dr. DS Chauhan held a high level meeting on this issue.

On Sunday, ADG Law and Order Prashant Kumar also took stock of the traffic jam problem on Kanpur Road. ADG Intelligence SB Shirdkar has been appointed as the new police commissioner of Lucknow by removing both the police commissioners while ADG Police Headquarters Lucknow BP Jogdand has been made the police commissioner of Kanpur. Jogdand was posted at the police headquarters for a long time. There were frequent discussions about his non-transfer. In this way, after a long time, he has been sent on field deployment.

Both the ADGs who have been made police commissioners are originally from Maharashtra. IPS Jogdand of 1991 batch of UP cadre hails from Latur district of Maharashtra, while IPS Shirdkar of 1993 batch of UP cadre hails from Nanded district of Maharashtra.

DGP CBCID Gopal Lal Meena has been shifted to insignificant posts like DGP Cooperative Cell, while DGP Home Guards Vijay Kumar has been transferred as DGP CBCID. DGP Logistics Lucknow BK Maurya has been given additional charge of DGP Logistics while posting as DGP Home Guards.
