At the cabinet meeting, the IAS officers protested with full force, but this time the soft corner of CM Kamal Nath was towards the IPS lobby, so a total of 15 posts of ADG were given temporary approval.

What arguments did IAS officers give

Additional Chief Secretary Anurag Jain said that "As the posts become vacant, promotion will take place." You should not give so many temporary posts. Two officers of my own batch in the IAS cadre could not be promoted to the post of ACS. Mohammad Suleman and I are done. ”Chief Secretary to the Chief Minister Ashok Varnwal reiterated the same. On this, Chief Minister Kamal Nath said that IPS officers say that wherever they go, their promotions are not happening. Therefore, the posts of ADG should be approved.

The announcement was stopped by the IAS lobby on 15 August

It is worth mentioning that on August 15, CM Kamal Nath was going to announce the implementation of the Police Commissioner System in Bhopal and Indore when IAS officers stopped him. Later, both the IAS-IPS delegations met the Chief Minister and made their stand. During this time also the situation remained the same. IAS officers described the commissioner system as unusable and harmful while IPS officers called it mandatory and useful.
