Raipur: The BJP government in Chhattisgarh on Sunday transferred an IAS officer following his comments about the late Jan Sangh leader Deendayal Upadhyaya on a social networking site.

A senior official of the state government said that the officer, Shiv Anant Tayal, who was the CEO of Kanker Zilla Parishad, was transferred to the state Secretariat.

BJP is currently celebrating the birth centenary of Deendayal Upadhyaya.

Mr Tayal, a 2012 batch IAS officer, had posted a critical comment about Upadhyaya’s contribution on Facebook on Friday, after which, BJP leaders demanded action against him.
