Retired High Court judge, Justice P. Lakshmana Reddy has been appointed as the new Lokayukta of Andhra Pradesh on Monday. Reddy is the first Lokayukta of the Andhra Pradesh since its bifurcation and will hold the position for the next 5 years.
Justice Reddy began his career as an advocate in the district court before making his way up to the high court and retiring as the judge of Andhra Pradesh High Court. He played a crucial role in the unearthing of the Yeluru Land compensation scam where crores of rupees released by the government for the farmers were misappropriated by unrelated parties in the 90s.
Before Justice Lakshmana Reddy, Justice B Subhashan Reddy last served as the Lokayukta for Andhra Pradesh during the combined state days back in 2012. However, after his retirement, the post has been lying vacant. The institution continued functioning without a head all these years
While cases were being heard till December 15, 2017, since then, not a single case has been heard.
