Ratlam | A tehsildar in Khachrod town of Ujjain district purportedly took a jibe at the famous tagline Mera Desh Badal Raha Hai, which encapsulates various initiatives of the Narendra Modi government, by posting a comment on a social networking site, but deleted it following a flutter.

In his Facebook post yesterday, the officer, identified as Sanjay Waghmare, purportedly stated that nothing is actually changing on ground. When contacted, Waghmare said today, I have removed the post and I don’t want to comment on it. He struck off the post apparently after it went viral and started attracting ‘likes and comments’.

The incident came on the heels of two IAS officers from state inviting the wrath of the government for their comments on the social media. The government recently issued a show cause notice to Narsinghpur district Collector Sibi Chakraborthy for purportedly posting a post congratulating Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa.

The FB post was, however, deleted within few hours. A few days back, Barwani collector Ajay Singh Gangwar was shunted out after he had praised former prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru in his Facebook post. He was slapped a show cause notice on Monday for allegedly advocating a ‘jan kranti’ (people’s revolution) against Prime Minister Narendra Modi through a Facebook comment.
