Lucknow: Urban Development Minister Azam Khan on Wednesday blasted bureaucrats saying that they understand only the language of ‘cane’.

Addressing the party workers in the presence of SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, Azam Khan said that the officials’ habit has taken a nose dive. The officials do not work for the welfare of public instead they eye on promotions and transfers.

Hinting at major administrative reshuffle, Mulayam Singh Yadav also said that there must be a overhauling of bureaucracy in the state.

Mulayam Singh on Wednesday was present among the workers at party headquarters when Azam joined him. The heavy weight minister lost his cool while listening to the problems of party workers. “You will have to keep a whip in hand to keep the officers working, said Azam.

Notably, the minister earlier too snubbed some senior officers for their absence from a meeting.
