Srinagar, January 10

Shah Faesal, who announced his decision to quit the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) on Wednesday, has cancelled his meeting with Valley youth in Srinagar on Friday in view of the weather forecast. He has also acknowledged the response to his decision to quit the elite service both as supportive and adverse.

“Due to the adverse weather forecast for Friday, the proposed youth interaction in Srinagar is postponed. We shall meet soon. Thank you for showing interest,” the first IAS topper from Kashmir wrote on his Facebook account.

In another post earlier on Thursday, Faesal, who topped the exam in 2010, said his next course of action would depend on what the people of Kashmir wanted him to do.

“My choice of politics will be decided by real people not Fb likes and comments,” he wrote.

“It has been a storm of abuse and adulation. Hundreds and thousands of people reacted to my resignation in hundreds and thousands of ways. I totally expected this,” he wrote.

“As of now I have quit the service. What I am going to do hereafter also depends on what people of Kashmiri want me to do. More so the youth,” he wrote in Facebook post.

Faesal asked people if they had any ideas for him before he takes a final decision about his future.
