Deputy Collector Nisha Bangre has been in the news for resigning from her post after six years in service.
The lady bureaucrat resigned from her post after she was denied the holiday that she had requested, a report in DNA India stated.
Now, former SDM Bangre is aiming to contest the forthcoming state assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh.
“I will definitely contest the election. I want to be a part of democracy – becoming an MLA is a part of it. I will definitely file my nomination,” Bangre was quoted as saying to ANI.
Hailing from Balaghat district in Madhya Pradesh, Nisha went on to pursue engineering after completing her schooling. She completed her engineering in 2014 and got a job offer from a multinational company in Gurugram.
However, after working there she decided to prepare for the UPSC. She worked day and night tirelessly for the preparation. As fortune would have it, her hard work paid off and she cleared India’s toughest exam UPSC in 2016.
She was posted as a DSP in Madhya Pradesh until she decided to resign from her post.
Explaining the reason for her resignation, Bangre said, “I was not granted permission to participate in the inauguration of my own house. All this is happening due to political action. I always want a good system to be maintained in this country. The systems are made by the officers and our public representatives.”
