Bhopal: Former IAS SN Rupla has resigned from the post of registrar of appellate tribunal of Madhya Pradesh Real Estate Regulatory (RERA). RERA chairman, Antony deSa got Rupla appointed. Rupla after his retirement was appointed as officer-on-special-duty (OSD) to former Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.
Rupla in the recent past, resigned from the OSD post, and during assembly polls, had accompanied Chouhan during his election tours. Rupla’s appointment was highly resented by Congress leaders. They had made complaints in this regard to Chief Minister Kamal Nath and state in-charge Deepak Babaria.
