SC blow to state govt on PMC Commissioner’s transfer

Patna,(BiharTimes): The division bench of A K Patnaik and Kurien Joseph of the Supreme Court recently refused to interfere in the Patna High Court’s order restraining the state government from transferring the Commissioner of Patna Municipal Corporation, Kuldeep Narayan.

The apex court ruling came after the Urban Development Department of the state government filed a Special Leave Petition (SLP) against the High Court order seeking transfer of Narayan on administrative ground.

The SC’s refusal came as a blow to the state government as Narayan, acting on the order of the Patna High Court, is going tough against 141 builders who have violated various norms and rules of the PMC. As the builders have big political lobby and strong connection they want Narayan to be removed from the post though he took over as the Commissioner only a few months back.
