Naidu opposes upgrading of e-office files!

Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu on Thursday strongly opposed upgrade the existing e-office version of the Andhra Pradesh government under the instructions of the Union Ministry of Electronic and Information Technology and the Network Interface Controller (NIC), New Delhi.

In a letter to Governor Abdul Nazeer, a copy of which was sent to the Election Commission and other top officials of the state government, Naidu asked him to initiate measures to immediately put an end to the process of upgrading the e-office of the state government. 

According to the latest order issued by the state government, due to upgradation of the e-office, the services of the existing e-office application are not available for the Chief Minister's Office (CMO), the Chief Secretary's office, various wings in the State Secretariat and Heads of Departments (HoDs) from Friday till May 25.

He expressed apprehension that the timing of the exercise is fraught with possible mischief of deleting the important files and documents relating to the decisions taken by the Jagan government involving omissions, commissions, irregularities, deviations and diversions of resources to favour the contractors besides some YSRCP leaders.

Pointing out that the State Government, violating the regular practice, has not been uploading the GOs on its website, particularly some GOs relating to major decisions, thus keeping the crucial decisions under the wraps, Naidu said there is absolutely no transparency in the administration and cases are being foisted against those who are raising voice against the irregularities in the governance or opaque decisions.

“Some mischief is likely to be resorted to by the outgoing government in the name of migrating to new e-office version, particularly when the election process is on and many officers, including the HoDs are drafted for the poll duty who are not available at their respective headquarters,” he said.

He suggested that the decision can be postponed till the new government is in its place and appealed to the governor to issue directions to the chief secretary to that effect.
