Don't teach lessons to Modi, Mr KCR!

Telangana Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday strongly reacted to chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday alleging that the Centre was usurping the powers of the state on IAS officers’ deputation.

In a statement, Telangana BJP spokesman K Krishnasagar Rao said KCR must understand that state governments have no right or role in dictating terms on service rule amendments of All India Service officers to Central Government.

“The chief minister should also understand the difference between amending laws and amending service rules of Central Government employees. Central Government does not need parliamentary bills or discussions to make executive decisions,” he said.

He wondered how many amendments made by KCR, including the recent changes though GO 317 on employees’ and teachers’ transfers have been discussed in the state assembly.

“There's not even a violation of law or statute, leave alone the Constitution. Service rule amendments are routine government decisions. Small issues can't be made big, just by writing big letters to the Prime Minister,” he said.

Rao said it was unfortunate that the chief minister, who was elected for a second term, is worried that the entire state government and its administration will become unstable and chaotic, if a few officers are transferred to the Central Government on deputation. 

KCR has been using some IAS & IPS officers as his party members and extended family for many years.

“He is clearly worried, that if they are transferred on deputation, his big secrets might not remain secrets anymore,” the BJP leader said.

He said the BJP refuted and rejected all accusations made on Narendra Modi and his government by KCR in his letter, as baseless and silly.
