Mukul Goel Removed – CM Yogi did not like DGP Mukul Goyal
It is not hidden from anyone that the Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath Mukul did not like Goyal as DGP. Yogi had publicly reprimanded him in many meetings. But the matter escalated when the CM did not even call Mukul Goyal in an important meeting. While he was sitting in his office. After becoming the CM of UP again, Yogi had called a meeting of all the senior IAS and IPS officers. The agenda was of law and order. In this meeting, officers from Additional Chief Secretary Avnish Awasthi to DIG rank were present. But the DGP was not called. Since then, there was talk that Goyal’s chair will no longer be left, after all it happened.
For the first time, Mukul Goel came into controversy when, a few days after becoming the DGP, he suspended the Thanedar of Hazratganj in Lucknow. But his decision was counciled by the Chief Minister. Goyal wanted an inspector of his choice to be a Thanedar, but Lucknow Police Commissioner DK Thakur refused. Later this matter reached the Chief Minister. Then, looking at Mukul Goyal in a meeting itself, he said that the DGP and the CM office should stay away from the posting of Thanedars.
Mayawati also suspended Goyal
Goyal has been shifted from DGP to DG Civil Defense. Even before this he has been in controversies. While Chief Minister, Mayawati had suspended him for his involvement in the police recruitment scam. Mukul Goyal, a resident of Muzaffarnagar, is a BTech pass from IIT Delhi. He also has an MBA degree. He has also been the SSP of important districts like Varanasi, Gorakhpur and Meerut. During his posting at the center, Goyal has also served in ITBP, NDRF, and BSF.
