I am deeply inspired by Pakistan PM Imran Khan and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal: Ex-IAS officer Shah Faesal

New Delhi: Former Kashmiri IAS officer Shah Faesal, who resigned from his post two days, on Thursday addressed a press conference in which he spelt out his reasons for quitting the civil services. Faesal reiterated his belief that Muslims and minority communities were being “marginalised” in India and also hit out at the NDA government over the alleged “undermining” of institutions like CBI and RBI.

The former IAS official, a 2010-batch officer who was also the first person from Jammu and Kashmir to top the civil services exam, said that he found it impossible to express his concern over the marginalisation of minorities and the curbs on freedom of speech while he was in service.

“Today as i chose to spoke out, i feel extremely relieved,” he said during the press conference.
