Continuing with big internal reshuffles,Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Commissioner Shrikar Pardeshi on Monday ordered transfers of 57 junior engineers from the civil department of the civic body,who were holding the same posts for a considerable period of time.

With this,the tally of internal transfers within Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) effected by Pardeshi has reached 300.

Significantly,this decision has come in the wake of ongoing speculation about his own transfer,allegedly sought by local NCP leaders over PCMC’s drive against illegal constructions.

Pardeshi,who had prepared a list of staff sticking to one department for more than three years,soon after taking over the reins of PCMC,had transferred about 34 executive and deputy engineers.

He had transferred around 250 employees since he took charge. To start with,he transferred 74 employees,mostly head clerks. A few months later,he transferred 142 more. In another major reshuffle a few days ago,he ordered the transfer of six senior officials.
