Jhansi Sadar of Uttar Pradesh has faced a case of resignation due to non-discharge of CO Manish Sonkar (Jhansi CO Resignation). Sonkar resigned from his post accusing police department officials of insensitivity. He sent his resignation to the Governor through SSP Rohan P Kanay. However, the resignation has not been approved yet.
After resigning, the CO has written an open letter. This letter is becoming viral on social media. The CO's viral letter says, 'I am the UP PCS officer of 2005 batch. Currently I am appointed to the post of Jurisdiction of Sadar in Jhansi district. My wife and 4 year old daughter are living with me. For the last 12 years, I have been serving with full devotion and mindfulness while discharging the duties of my post. No matter what the circumstances have been, no matter what has happened in the family, no matter how sick someone has been in my family, no matter who has died, someone has always put the police service ahead of themselves, trying for some alternative arrangement. And I was able to do this only because the family, especially my wife, was always supported.
Family needs in times of epidemic
Actually CO Sonkar's wife was having high fever. Manish himself also suffered from high fever since 20 April. He did the test five times, but the negative report of Corona came. Therefore, he continued to do duty after consuming medicines. The wife further wrote in the viral letter, 'Despite this, in the era of this epidemic, when my family once needed me, it started torturing rather than helping. According to Manish, he informed the SSP about his position and asked for leave for 6 days from May 1, but his duty was put in the counting of panchayat elections of Bargaon block from May 2 to 3. After this Manish resigned from his job. It is being told that after the resignation the SSP discharged him.
