The Differences among the ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi partners surfaced yet again after the home department was forced to stay the transfers of five IPS officers, barely a few hours after the order was issued on Wednesday evening.

Authoritative sources told the Free Press Journal, ‘‘The Home Department in its order issued on Wednesday evening had transferred IPS officers Rajendra Mane, Mahesh Patil, Sanjay Jadhav, Punjabrao Ugale and Dattatraya Shinde after Home Minister Dilip Walse-Patil secured approvals from the Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.

However, in the case of these five officers, Shiv Sena Minister Eknath Shinde reportedly took objection, asserting that he was not consulted.’’ Sources said Shinde took up the matter with Uddhav and soon after the Home Department stayed the transfers.

A senior minister, however, said Uddhav had cleared all the transfers and promotions and there was no need for further consultations with individual ministers.

‘‘Although the transfers of the five IPS officers have been stayed, their appointments will have to be made soon, as they have been already promoted. The transfer and promotion orders of other officers have been executed as cleared by the CM,’’ he noted.

Mane, who is deputy commissioner, state intelligence department, was promoted as additional commissioner and posted in Thane city. Patil, who is deputy commissioner in Mira Bhayander police Commissionerate, was appointed additional commissioner (traffic), Mumbai. Jadhav, who is superintendent, highway protection security squad, Pune, was posted as additional commissioner Thane city. Further, Ugale, who is superintendent in anti corruption bureau, Thane, was appointed as additional commissioner (local arms), Mumbai. Further, Shinde, who is superintendent of police, Palghar, was posted as additional commissioner (protection and security), Mumbai.
