Amethi: Officials need to identify Union ministers at any cost. If they failed to do so, then their job would be in jeopardy. The same incident has taken place with an official in Uttar Pradesh.

A lekhpal, who failed to recognise Amethi MP and Union minister Smriti Irani over the phone has been ordered to be probed, officials said on Monday.

On August 27, a resident of Poore Pahalwan village in Musafirkhana tehsil wrote to Irani, claiming that his mother, Savitri Devi, is entitled to a pension following the death of his father, a teacher by profession. But Lekhpal Deepak failed to do his verification.

The complainant, Karunesh (27), added that this prevents his mother from getting the pension.

Regarding this matter, Irani, Union Minister of Women and Child Development, phoned the lekhpal, but he failed to recognise her.

Ankur Lathar, Chief Development Officer (CDO) of Amethi, on Monday said that as per the letter of Karunesh, Musafirkhana lekhpal Deepak  took the matter like a cakewalk, and he wasn’t able to discharge his duties.

Lathar said that sub-divisional magistrate Musafirkhana has been asked to investigate the matter, after which action will be taken.

When the Union minister called up the lekhpal on Sunday on the complaint of Karunesh, the lekhpal didn’t recognise her. After this, the CDO took the phone from the minister and told the lekhpal to meet him at the office.

Currently, the lekhpal is posted at Gautampur gram sabha under Musafirkhana tehsil.
