The state government has issued orders transferring Nagpur revenue divisional commissionerate-based assistant director of municipal councils Babasaheb Manohare as the full-time CEO of the Aurangabad smart city. The order signed by state additional secretary Sachin Sahastrabudhe was issued on February 1.
Manohare, who has been promoted and posted, said, “As per the state government orders as well as directives from the urban development department, I have reached the city to take charge as CEO of Aurangabad Smart City. I will take forward all the good works that have been initiated by Astik Kumar Pandey.”
However, Aurangabad Municipal Corporation officials said that Pandey, on Wednesday, wrote a letter to the urban development department registering his objection to the orders appointing Manohare as the fulltime CEO of the smart city. Pandey is said to have sent the letter citing a communication (dated June 18, 2016) and stating that the post of the smart city CEO on priority will remain with an officer of IAS cadre.
Since taking charge of the AMC in December 2019, Pandey has been shouldering the additional charge of the smart city. During his term, he launched a series of projects including the smart city headquarters operations command centre (OCC), integrated municipal e-governance system, smart mobility, master system integrator, construction of 150 bus shelters on PPP basis, conservation of historical gates as well as Shahgunj clock tower.
The smart city team, during the initial stages of the Covid-19 pandemic, had also played a very crucial role in identification and admission of the people infected with the coronavirus.
