Retired Babus Condemn Chandrababu!

The unsavoury comments made by Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu against chief secretary L V Subrahmanyam incurred the wrath of retired IAS officers.

As many as 13 retired IAS officers including I V Subba Rao, S Bhale Rao, K V Rao, T S Appa Rao, A K Parida, S K Sinha, Sutheertha Bhattacharya, Vidya Sagar, M G Gopal, C V S K Sarma, Vinod K Agarwal, J C Mohanty and Dr Vijaya Kumar wrote a strongly-worded letter to Naidu for making derogatory comments against Subrahmanyam.

It may be mentioned that Naidu had called Subrahmanyam a covert of YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy and a co-accused in Jagan’s case. He also questioned Subrahmanyam’s appointment as CS and his meeting with DGP R P Thakur.

The retired officers said Subrahmanyam was known as an outstanding officer and the high court had quashed all the cases against him. They wondered how he could be called an accused.

“We request the chief minister to avoid such comments in future and withdraw them at once and apologise,” they demanded.

They also found fault with Naidu for going to the office of Chief Electoral Officer and talking to him in strong words.

“It is also not in the best traditions of administration and will send a message of intimidation. We request the chief minister to desist from such actions,” they said in the letter.
