By the way : Awaiting poll results in UP

uttar-pradesh-mapCivil servants in Uttar Pradesh are a fidgety lot these days. The ongoing assembly elections and fast-changing political scenario has forced even senior civil servants to plan the next five years cautiously. Though there is a conducive atmosphere for UP civil services in Delhi as the Cabinet Secretary himself hails from the cadre, most have wilfully chosen to stay in Lucknow rather than to move on deputation to the central government under the Modi dispensation. The divided house of Mulayam Singh Yadav has, however, made their job difficult. The UP civil servants were quite comfortable till the formal split in the ruling family took place. Most of the civil servants were divided in three camps, one camp of those loyal to Akhilesh Yadav, another associated with Mulayam Singh Yadav and the last and the most powerful coterie was of Shiv Pal Singh Yadav. Nobody is sure what will happen after the UP assembly election results. Even if Akhilesh Yadav comes back in UP, the scenario is likely to be very different.

Whatever the outcome, it is especially going to be tough for loyalists of Shivpal Yadav to maintain the status quo. Insiders inform that a very powerful Brahmin lady civil servant is on the radar of many agencies. It has to be seen what will happen to her after the UP elections.
