Hundreds of Bengaluru residents have signed an online petition to demand that the recently transferred IAS officer Randeep D be brought back. D was the Special Commissioner (Solid Waste Management) of Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike but was transferred along with 11 other IAS officers recently.
They are signing their petitions using hashtag #WeNeedRandeep.
“Shocking that IAS officer Randeep was abruptly transferred just when he was starting to make an impact. He is effective, clear-headed, clean and cares about the city and its citizens,” tweeted a Bengaluru resident Priya Chetty. According to people, D was instrumental in implementing solid waste management in the last two months.
He was posted as Commissioner three months back only.
He also played a role in putting up conditions for the new garbage tender, which was expected to be called by December first week.
He ensured that all the auto tippers and compactors are fitted with the GPS so that they can be easily monitored.
