Shah Faesal, the Jammu and Kashmir cadre IAS officer who resigned from service, is likely to return to work after his resignation was declined by the Centre, reported IANS.

Faesal, who had decided to form his own political party after resigning from service, became disgruntled with politics and later stepped out of it by giving up his position in the J-K People’s Movement.

He formed the J-K People’s Movement on February 4, 2019, but resigned from politics on August 10, 2020.

He stood first in the 2010 Civil Services exam and was allotted home cadre. He has served at different positions during his service period.

Faesal said on Twitter that he is likely to get the Jammu and Kashmir cadre and would serve the people to the best of his capacity.

In a series of tweets Faesal said: “8 months of my life (Jan 2019-Aug 2019) created so much baggage that I was almost finished. While chasing a chimera, I lost almost everything that I had built over the years. Job. Friends. Reputation. Public goodwill. But I never lost hope. My idealism had let me down. 1/3.”

He added, “But I had faith in myself. That I would undo the mistakes I had made. That life would give me another chance. A part of me is exhausted with the memory of those 8 months and wants to erase that legacy. Much of it is already gone. Time will mop off the rest In believe. 2/3.”

“Just thought of sharing that life is beautiful. It is always worth giving ourselves another chance. Setbacks make us stronger. And there is an amazing world beyond the shadows of the past. I turn 39 next month. And I’m really excited to start all over again. 3/3.”
