Gagandeep Singh Bedi likely to be transfered

New government assumed power, already there were shuffle in top-level bureaucracies, next step would be to shuffle District Collectors and Police Service officers. We are likely to lose District Collector Mr.Gagandeep Singh Bedi, who was with us during the period of great distresses. He as a sole man took great pains in transforming Cuddalore. But three years is a smaller period to transform a town which has faced centuries of discrimination. Cuddalore is mentioned as 'Black Town' even in the history. An unfortunate town. It has every potential to grow into a metropolitan, but due to discrimination and "unsympathetic government policies" it lacks the development it deserves.Gagandeep Singh Bedi was the man who came to rescue. Unfortunately he is likely to be transfered.

Its worthwhile to recall Prime Miniter Dr.Manmohan Singh called District Collectors as "critical agents" for ensuring a new deal to rural India, on the District Collectors meet held on May 19 & 20, 2005. In the meet Prime Minister strongly insisted that District Collectors should not be transfered often, as it prevents them from effectively carrying out the developmental activities.He reiterated the same atleast on three other occassions.

Let us see whether the new government in the state which is in coalition with Manmohan Singh's Congress party abides to this.
