IAS officer, who sparred with Shiv Sena before polls, yet to be given new posting

In its second major bureaucratic reshuffle, the Maha Vikas Aghadi government has moved Ashwini Bhide from her position as managing director, Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation Limited (MMRCL). She has been replaced with Ranjit Singh Deol, an IAS officer of the 1998 batch. Mr. Deol was the vice chairman and managing director of the Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation. Ms. Bhide has yet not been given a new posting.

She had locked horns with the Shiv Sena before the elections, especially with the present Tourism Minister, Aaditya Thackeray, who had opposed the cutting of trees for the Metro 3 car shed in Aarey. According to sources, her contract with the MMRCL, which is a joint venture between the Centre and the State government, had ended in December.
