In a development that has shocked many, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jaganmohan Reddy has removed Chief Secretary LV Subhramanyam from his post, Subrahmanyam has been the CS of the state since the state elections in April, and has still six months of service to go.
It is being reported that Subrahmanyam had to pay the price for seeking an explanation over violation of certain business rules form Chief Minister's Principal Secretary Praveen Prakash. This reportedly caught the ire of the CM who stood by his Principal Secretary and chose to make this move.
In the past week, the two officers have been embroiled in a spat, with the Chief Secretary serving a show-cause notice to Praveen Prakash. Earlier, it had been reported that the notice was served for including certain topics in the cabinet meeting held on October 30, without following due procedure.
In the meanwhile, chief commissioner of land administration, Neerab Kumar Prasad, was given the additional charge of the top bureaucratic post in the state.
This is only the second instance of an unceremonious exit of a chief secretary enforced by a political boss in the last two decades. The first time it happened was when Ananda Rao was ousted as the CS of combined Andhra Pradesh by the then chief minister N. Chandrababu Naidu during the late 90s. All other chief secretaries but one other CS have completed their term and retired in the Telugu states.
Subrahmanyam has now been posted as Director-General of the AP Human Resources Development Institute in Bapatla.
