Govt plans reshuffle in top bureaucracy

The government is going to reshuffle the top tier of the civil bureaucracy as several officials are going on leave preparatory to retirement (LPR) in the next two months. At the same time, the government will reshuffle the field administration by withdrawing at least 15 Deputy Commissioners (DCs) from the field as a number of district magistrates were serving in same districts for more than two years, sources in the public administration ministry said.

The sources said that at least 10 secretaries in different ministries and the divisions are scheduled to go on LPR by January 2020.

Of them, Prime Minister’s Office principal secretary Md Nojibur Rahman, cabinet secretary Khandaker Anwarul Islam, Secondary and Higher Education Division senior secretary Md Sohorab Hossain, fisheries and livestock secretary Md Raisul Alam Mondal, food secretary Shahabuddin Ahmed, public administration secretary Faiz Ahmed, and social welfare senior secretary Zuena Aziz will go on PRL this December.

Energy Division senior secretary Abu Hena Md Rahmatul Muneem, Prime Minister’s Office secretary Sajjadul Hassan, social welfare senior secretary Zuena Aziz, and Land Appeal Board chairman Md. Abdul Hannan will go on LPR in January 2020.

Of them, some secretaries were pursuing the ministers concerned to extend their job on a contractual basis, the sources claimed.

At the same time, some additional secretaries with links to the Prime Minister's Office and the ministers concerned are trying to become secretary.

A senior official of the public administration ministry told The Independent, on condition of anonymity, that they will fill up the posts of secretaries from the additional secretaries who are efficient, honest, and have good track records, though everything will depend on the decision of higher ups.

“The jobs of some secretaries may

be extended through a contractual basis if

the authorities concerned think it is required,” he said.

The official also said that the reshuffle would

be carried out to address the discontent in the  administration as well as to reorganise the administration to carry forward various government programmes.

According to the official, at least 15 DCs would be withdrawn from the field and new DCs would be posted from the existing DC-fit list, prepared by the public administration ministry, within January next year.

A total of 75 secretaries and acting secretaries are working in different ministries and divisions as against the sanctioned 78 posts.
