Shah Faesal (IAS:2010:J&K) who had irked the Centre by his tweet on ‘so called rape culture, has resigned from the service. Reportedly, he may join National Conference to pursue active and electoral politics. Faesal was the topper of his batch (2010).

 

Former J&K chief minister Omar Abdullah welcomed Faesal’s decision saying; “The bureaucracy’s loss is politics’ gain. Welcome to the fold @shahfaesal,” Omar tweeted.

 

Faesal has submitted his resignation to the government. Reportedly, Faesal could be the NC’s candidate for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

 

A doctor by profession, Faesal was the managing director of the J&K Power Development Corporation (JKPDC) before he went to Harvard University in the United States to pursue further studies. He was supposed to join his department in June this year.

 

Irked over his tweet the Centre had asked the J&K General Administration Dept to initiate an inquiry into his tweets, as he “allegedly failed to maintain absolute honesty and integrity” in discharge of his official duty.
