The Uttarakhand government has withdrawn its decision of posting Indian Forest Service officer Sanjiv Chaturvedi as OSD, National Green Tribunal. Chief Secretary Shatrughna Singh has been asked to withdraw the decision taken regarding the posting of Sanjiv Chaturvedi as Officer on Special Duty (OSD), National Green Tribunal, Chief Minister Harish Rawat told reporters yesterday. The officer will now be given a fresh posting of his choice, he said. Chaturvedi is said to have not been very interested in taking up the assignment as OSD, NGT where he had to represent Uttarakhand in over 180 cases related to violation of environmental norms. In a letter to the Chief Secretary earlier this month, the officer had offered his services in the state Vigilance department or state Anti-Corruption Bureau. Chaturvedi was shifted to the state after his appointment as OSD to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was struck down by the Centre.
