‘Will Contest Against Yogi,’ Says Amitabh Thakur

Amitabh Thakur, former Uttar Pradesh cadre IPS officer whi was given early retirement will now contest state assembly elections next year against Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

“Sri Adityanath undertook many undemocratic, improper, suppressive, harassing and discriminatory steps during his tenure as Chief Minister,” she alleged and “hence, Amitabh (Thakur) shall be contesting the election against Sri Adityanath from any place he contests.”

“It is a fight for principles for him, where he shall be presenting his protest to the wrongdoings,” said Amitabh’s wife.

On March 23, following a decision taken by the Union Home Ministry Mr Amitabh Thakur was given a compulsory retirement in “public interest”.

The former IPS officer would have completed his tenure in 2028 otherwise, but the Union Home Ministry had said that he was “not found fit to be retained for the remaining tenure of his service”.

“In the public interest, Amitabh Thakur is being given premature retirement before completion of his service with immediate effect,” said the ministry’s order.

In 2017, Amitabh had also requested to change his cadre state.

He was also suspended on July 13, 2015, after he accused Samajwadi Party’s Mulayam Singh Yadav for threatening him.

A vigilance enquiry was also prompted against him.

Although, the Lucknow Bench of Central Administrative Tribunal stayed his suspension in April 2016 and ordered his reinstatement from October 11, 2015 with full salary
