IAS and IPS officers have said that Shah Faesal’s quitting IAS, the country’s elite service, won’t make any difference as there are thousands of IPS and IAS officers who work for the public welfare and maintain political neutrality in discharge of their duties.
When contacted Athar Aamir, who bagged second position in the IAS examination few years back but was allotted Rajasthan cadre, told, “I know Shah Faesal. He is a good friend of mine, but can’t comment on his decision. He must have taken the decision after giving a serious thought to the idea of quitting of IAS. He could contribute immensely as an IAS officer but he could contribute a lot as a politician also. I wish him best of luck in his future endeavors.”
A senior IPS officer of J&K cadre Vijay Kumar told “Shah Faesal’s quitting IAS won’t make any difference to the people who are in IAS and IPS services as there are thousands of IAS and IPS officers working with dedication and commitment for the public welfare across the country.”
