Bhopal/Nagpur: A senior bureaucrat in Madhya Pradesh has been transferred after he praised former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru on Facebook. Ajay Singh Gangwar has now deleted his post on Thursday after the post went viral on internet. The ruling BJP says he has been penalized because he violated a basic rule – bureaucrats are not meant to share political affiliations.
“He has violated code of conduct. If in the name of freedom of speech, we will insult the system, that is wrong,” said Vishwas Sarang of the BJP.
