Video: Shivraj Singh Chouhan 'suspends' official on stage

Before being suspended, the official was reprimanded by the CM for failing to meet the target of issuing an adequate number of cards under the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala scheme.

In an utterly embarrassing incident, an official in the Madhya Pradesh government was fired by chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan publicly during a programme in Dindori.

Before being suspended, the official was reprimanded by the CM for failing to meet the target of issuing an adequate number of cards under the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala scheme.

A video of the incident shows Chouhan pulling up the DSO (District Supply Officer) identified as Tikaram Ahirwar on the stage.

During the event in Dindori, Chouhan was being briefed about the status of the Ujjwala scheme. Under the scheme, LPG connections are distributed among women from Below Poverty Line (BPL) families.

He was informed that the district had not met its targets. Seemingly annoyed at the report, Chouhan then asked the official to call the DSO on stage and explain.

While the DSO reported progress and reasoned for the failure, MP CM said, “Go, you’re suspended.”

The suspension is yet to be confirmed officially.
