Chief Minister wrote a letter to the Prime Minister to keep the cadre rules of All India Services in place

Chief Minister Shri Bhupesh Baghel has written a letter to Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi regarding the recent amendments proposed by the Government of India in the Cadre Rules of All India Services. He has urged the Prime Minister to keep the cadre rule of All India Services unchanged. The Chief Minister has clearly mentioned in his letter that due to the proposed amendment in the Cadre Rules of All India Services, the administrative system may collapse and a situation of instability may be created. The Chief Minister has written that while proposing amendments by the Central Government in the Cadre Rules of All India Services, the opinion of the State Governments has been sought on those amendments. The proposed amendment empowers the Central Government to post officers of the All India Services, unilaterally without the consent of the State Government or the concerned officer, which is completely contrary to the federal spirit adopted and outlined in the Constitution. The officers of the All India Service are basically posted in the states and are posted on deputation in the Central Government. The deputation is generally done after the consent of the State Government. The State Governments have been giving their consent on Central deputation, taking decisions on their administrative needs. Officers of All India Services in Chhattisgarh State have been discharging their responsibilities in various important administrative works including law and order, eradication of Naxal violence, all round development of the state and conservation of forests. are being As a result of these amendments, it is natural to awaken a sense of instability and ambiguity among the officers of the All India Services, who are posted on various important posts from the districts to the state level. Due to this, there will be confusion in the discharge of official duties by them and due to political interference, it will not be possible to work impartially, especially at the time of elections, due to which the administrative system may collapse and instability may be created in the states. It has been said that there is a great possibility of misuse of these rules in the near future. There are instances of action being taken by unnecessarily targeting members of All India Services in several incidents in the past. There are adequate provisions in the present rules for balance and coordination between the state and central governments in the past. The Government of Chhattisgarh strongly opposes the amendment in the Cadre Rules of All India Services and demands that the cadre rules should be kept as before.
