IYR Krishna Rao writes to Union Cabinet Secretary urging to cancel extension of Mohanty
March 5, 2014 - Hyderabad
Chief Commissioner of Land Administration, IYR Krishna Rao requested the Union Cabinet Secretary Pulok Chatterjee to cancel the extension given to Andhra Pradesh Chief Secretary PK Mohanty.
In a letter addressed to Union Cabinet Secretary, Krishna Rao termed the decision to extend as irregular, undemocratic and in violative of laid down rules in force. He disputed the contention of vacuum in the administration on the charge that the retirement of Mohanty was notified by the State Government way back in November 2013. He could very well hand over charge to a senior. Krishna Rao quoted the Business Rules that say extension could be given only in public interest and in the instant nowhere it is mentioned.
He wanted the Union Cabinet Secretary to cancel and be given to an officer of competent in the State.
