Chandigarh, March 3 : In another “war of supremacy” between Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and his Home Minister Anil Vij, the latter has expressed ‘annoyance’ over granting extension to state police chief Manoj Yadava for one year.
Despite Vij’s reservations, Director General of Police (DGP) Yadava, who was due to return to central deputation, on Tuesday got a one-year extension to continue in the state.
On the day of getting the extension, Vij wrote a letter to express his ‘annoyance’, saying “it is so kind of the Intelligence Bureau Department (MHA) for extending the terms of the DGP only for one year”.
Admonishing the police chief, Vij, in a missive dated March 2, wrote, “He should be given extension only up to the time next arrangement is finalized because he is an incompetent officer.” “Law and order situation of the state cannot be kept under control so long he is head of the police force because he has no control over the officers of his department.” The letter further says “Moreover, the way he has mismanaged the farmers’ agitation, it is not in the interest of the state to continue him as the DGP. Therefore, the work on the panel sent by the ACS (Home) should be expedited so that the process of appointment of the new DGP is finalized at the earliest.”
