Mayor lodges protest with Minister on protocol violation

Sunday, November 26, 2017

Rajamahendravaram Municipal Corporation Mayor Patntam Rajani Sesha Sai registered her protest in protocol violation in the presence of Agriculture Minister Somireddy Chandra Mohan Reddy.

She was invited to the stone-laying ceremony of an agriculture college at Katheru, in which Chandra Mohan Reddy was the chief guest. After unveiling the plaque, the Mayor was shocked as her name was not mentioned on it. When she brought it to the notice of the Minister, he reportedly said it was an issue to be dealt with the protocol officials. Not convinced, she left the programme. None of the leaders including MLAs and the MLC tried to stop her.

Rajamahendravaram Rural MLA Gorantla Butchaiah Chowdary found fault with Rajani and said that it was not correct on her part to leave the programme when a Minister was present. He said that the protocol violation should be condemned but the way she handled the situation was not commendable.
