Bengaluru (28.11.2022): With the Assembly election in Karnataka coming closer by the day, there is a buzz about a likely major reshuffle of senior IAS officers. Several departments including urban development, finance, revenue, and planning may also be changed in BBMP, but it might require the approval of the election commission as some senior officers have been holding election responsibilities too.
In a separate development, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai is said to have taken to task a senior officer of the urban development department (UDD) for showing the chief minister's office (CMO) in poor light. The UDD's letter that went viral had urged the CMO to return a file that was sent a year ago. Assembly elections are likely to be held in April or May 2023.
