Hisar, November 21

The state government has reverted secretary of the marketing committee Sultan Singh to the post of assistant secretary after an inquiry found him guilty of misconduct and dereliction in performing official duty.

In another incident, Sultan Singh had landed in a controversy when he was allegedly thrashed by BJP leader Sonali Phogat in full public view at a grain market in Balsamand village of the district in June. The police had registered criminal cases against Phogat and Sultan Singh. The matter is in court now.

The Chief Administrator (CA) of Haryana State Agriculture Marketing Board issued the orders of his reversion to the post of assistant secretary for the next five years.

“Charges of misconduct and dereliction of official duty have been levelled against him at various occasions in his career earlier also. Such an official has no right to remain in government service and is liable to be dismissed. But the earlier disciplinary proceedings should not affect the fate of the present disciplinary proceedings as the same will be against the principle of natural justice. Therefore, taking a lenient view in the matter, he is awarded punishment of reversion to the post of assistant secretary,” mentioned the order by the Chief Administrator.
