`Bias, prejudicial: Telangana IAS Association condemn Revanth Reddys diatribe against Bihar officers

Hyderabad: Telangana IAS Association has condemned the statement made by Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee President A Revanth Reddy against civil servants from Bihar.

Revanth Reddy accused Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao of retaining the officials from Bihar State for pecuniary gain.

To substantiate his charge, the TPCC chief said all the important departments in the State have IAS and IPS officers belonging to Bihar. He said that IAS officers Special Chief Secretary Rajat Kumar, Municipal Administration, and Urban Development Secretary Aravind Kumar, IT department Secretary Jayesh Ranjan and PR department secretary Sandeep Kumar Sultania belonged to Bihar.

The TPCC chief alleged that the presence of Bihar IAS officers was causing injustice to the IAS officers belonging to the State. He questioned the Chief Minister whether there was no talented IAS officer from the State to hold important portfolios. He said both CM and Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar introduced the Dharani portal. But, he alleged that the portal has several mistakes and causing disputes.

IAS Association said that they strongly condemn these statements. The Association noted that All India Service officers are allotted to a particular state as per Service Rules and are given postings by the governments concerned.

"Targeting a few officers from a particular state reflects bias and lack of understanding of the character of All India Service. It also amounts to intrusion and interference in the discharge of official duties by the officers. These statements have the undesirable effect of needlessly dragging officers for the sake of publicity," said IAS Association.

The Association asked the political functionaries to refrain from making such misconceived and prejudicial statements in the future against members of All India Service.
