“The state government has again posted Jamod as the collector of Ashoknagar,” a public relation department official said.

Jamod was transferred after the Congress complained to the EC about irregularities in the electoral rolls of Mungaoli Assembly constituency where a bypoll was conducted on February 24. Mungaoli falls within the limits of Ashoknagar district.

Following the complaint by the opposition Congress, booth level officials were also removed.

Jamod today replaced V S Choudhary Kolsani, who has been posted as collector of Katni in place of Vishesh Garhpale.

In other orders, the state government appointed Garhpale as managing director of MP Eastern Area Power Distribution Company Limited, Jabalpur in place of Mukesh Chand Gupta, who has been posted as secretary in the finance department.

The state government also posted Anoop Kumar Singh as chief executive officer of Anuppur district panchayat.
