A senior official of the Gujarat government was suspended by higher authorities after he was reportedly caught napping at an event attended by Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel, reports said.

According to reports, Jigar Patel, who is posted as the Chief Officer of Bhuj municipality in Gujarat’s Kutch district, was placed under suspension with immediate effect by the state’s Urban Development and Urban Housing Department on Saturday evening after he was allegedly caught dozing off on security cameras at a function in Bhuj.

A senior official said on Sunday that security camera footage showed Jigar Patel sleeping at the chief minister’s event, following which disciplinary action was initiated against him for “gross negligence.”

He said that Patel was suspended with immediate effect for “gross negligence and lack of devotion to duty” under Rule 5(1)(a) of Gujarat Civil Service (Discipline and Appeal) Rules, 1971”, adding that disciplinary action was taken against him due to his misconduct and lapse.

CM Bhupendra Patel attended a function in Gujarat’s Bhuj and distributed documents of ownership (property cards) of residential housing for the rehabilitation of around 14,000 earthquake-affected people in Kutch.

In a tweet, Bhupendra Patel said: “After the (2001) earthquake, rehabilitation of the affected people was done on a very large scale. Hon’ble Shri Narendrabhai Modi also had a unique love for Kutch. Under his leadership and guidance, Kutch has come out of many difficulties and has become a pioneer in the development path.”

Meanwhile, the Bhupendra Patel-led BJP government in Gujarat completed its 100 days in office at the end of last month.

At an event held at Gujarat secretariat to mark the occasion, CM Patel had said his government will fulfill all the promises it made and work towards making Gujarat more prosperous in the near future.

Bhupendra Patel said that Gujarat has become India’s growth engine thanks to the leadership and efforts of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Bihar: Government releases caste-based survey report, 27% backward classes, 36% extremely backward classes

The report indicated that 36 per cent of the state’s population are from Extremely Backward Classes, 27.1 percent are from Backward Classes, 19.7 per cent are from Scheduled Castes and 1.7 per cent are from Scheduled Tribes. The general population accounts for 15.5 per cent.

Scheduled caste accounts 19.65% and Scheduled Tribe consists of 1.68% of the population. Among the OBCs, Yadavs comprise 14.26% of the surveyed population, Kushwaha 4.27% and Kurmi 2.87%. The release of the caste based survey data comes at a time when the Supreme Court continues to hear petitions challenging a Patna High Court’s judgement that paved the way for this controversial caste-based headcount.

Speaking about the caste survey report, Union Minister Giriraj Singh mentioned that the caste census will do nothing more than spreading confusion among the poor and public of the state. He added that the Bihar government should have given a report card that Nitish Kumar ruled the state fr 18 years and Lalu Yadav ruled the state for 15 years but they did not develop the state.

Earlier today Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said he plans to call all nine parties that are part of the ruling coalition, including Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav’s Rashtriya Janata Dal, to discuss next steps, which could include dealing with decisions to increase OBC quotas at 27 per cent.

Reports said that around 2.64 lakh enumerators fanned out across the state, documenting the details of 29 million registered households on 17 socio-economic criteria, ranging from employment, education, marital status, land holding and property ownership and caste. Enumerators will have to choose between 214 pre-registered castes that have been allotted to individual codes.
