The order to transfer 10 IPS officers of the Deputy Commissioner of Police ( DCP) rank officers of Mumbai Police and its revocation has mounted trouble yet again among the three-party Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government. 

A day after the reversing of the transfer orders, the political situation in Maharashtra has witnessed a major stir. It is learnt that on Monday evening, Senior MVA leaders including Sharad Pawar, Anil Deshmukh and Jitendra Awhad reached Matoshree to meet Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. 

Senior Shiv Sena leader and Maharashtra Industries Minister Subhash Desai also reached Thackeray’s private residence. The discussion was likely held on ensuring smooth coordination on important decisions. 

The media reports suggest that the meeting at Matoshree was called to make sure that the allies in the MVA are not on different pages in the future. Yesterday, it was learnt that Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh met Thackeray at latter’s residence. 

The order to transfer 10 DCPs of Mumbai Police was signed by Singh but the proposal was never submitted to the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO). Thackeray sought details and learnt that Deshmukh, who holds the Home Ministry, was aware of the transfers. 

The CMO and Home department office revoked the order to transfer 10 DCP-rank officers. However, Deshmukh had claimed that there was good coordination among the MVA allies. 

Earlier, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar met Thackeray at Matoshree to discuss the COVID-19 situation. They both met after lockdown measures were initiated in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR). Pawar was reportedly upset over NCP not being taken into confidence regarding the decision. 

Speaking on the decision to reverse transfer of 10 DCP-rank IPS officers of Mumbai Police earlier, Fadnavis accused the Uddhav Thackeray government of lack of coordination. 

He said that Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh should have briefed the Chief Minister properly. The transfer order was reversed due to lack of coordination or confusion and it can be an error on the part of the home minister.
