Chhatarpur (Madhya Pradesh):
Chhatarpur deputy collector Nisha Bangre has resigned after being denied permission by the state government to attend the inauguration of her newly built home.
Nisha Bangre, who was posted as a deputy collector in Chhatarpur, resigned on Thursday.
According to her letter of resignation, a copy of which is with ANI, she wrote: “I am deeply hurt by the department’s letter for not allowing me to attend my own home’s inauguration program. My religious feelings have also been hurt by not allowing me to undertake a darshan of any religious program at the said post therefore I do not think it is right to continue the post of deputy collector by compromising on my fundamental rights, religious beliefs and constitutional values. Thus, I am resigning from the position of deputy collector effective immediately on June 22.”
After stepping down, rumors circulated in the corridors that Bangre was likely to join politics and run for election in the forthcoming parliamentary elections to be held later this year.
Speaking to ANI, Bangre called the rumors unfounded and said she resigned because the state government did not allow her to attend the inauguration of her home, which is scheduled for June 25.
“I have no such goal, and no such proposal (to join politics) has come to me from any political party. My resignation has nothing to do with politics. The inauguration of my house is scheduled , a religious event, Lord Buddha’s ashes have come into the program; and I am not allowed to attend, and this kind of behavior is not tolerable at all,” she said.
When asked about running for election, she replied that if there was a proposal, she would think about it.
