Bhopal: IAS officer Lokesh Jangid reneges on the decision to expose politician-corporate house nexus

BHOPAL: IAS officer Lokesh Jangid has backed off his decision to reveal the alleged politician-corporate house nexus.

He announced that he would bring to light that chain. Jangid who has already courted controversies planned to hold a press conference on Friday and reveal the politiciansí links with the corporate houses.

Yet, just before the press conference, Jangid tweeted that he had postponed it.

He, however, did not say anything about the scam that he was going to expose or what was the reason for reneging on the decision.

Controversies have surrounded Jangid after he has been transferred from Barwani. Besides sending his controversial posts to the IAS Associationís Whatsapp group, he conveyed the call records of the principal secretary (personnel) Deepti Gaur Mukherjee to his friends.

The General Administration Department sent him a notice for his action and sought an explanation from him. He has already sent a reply to the notice.

Administrative action is yet to be taken against Jangid after his reply to the notice.

He has kicked up another controversy by announcing to hold a press conference without the IAS Associationís permission.

Jangid also sought security saying that he had received threatening calls.

The Bhopal police are probing into the matter. He has, however, failed to produce any evidence about the threatening calls that he had received on a particular signal.

The police also sought his phone for inquiry, but he refused to give that.

Tweeter handle is active

Lokesh Jangid is still working on his tweeter handle through which he says that he is the follower of Jaiprakash Narayan and George Fernandes.

He is also posting the poems of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

Jangidís messages indicate that he is ready to lock horns with the government.
