Lucknow: An Uttar Pradesh official was transferred after he clicked selfies during an official meeting.
On Monday, District Magistrate Yogeshwar Ram Mishra conducted a meeting in Barabanki for district officials.
During the meeting, Mishra sought answers from many officials, including Block Development Official (BDO) Mangal Pandey.
But Mishra did not get a response from Pandey as the latter was busy clicking selfies from his mobile phone. The district magistrate immediately announced Pandey's removal from his post.
The action stunned officials into silence. Sushant Singh was posted as the new BDO of Suratganj, an official told IANS.
The office of the district magistrate also issued directives that officials attending meetings should avoid using cell phones during deliberations.
