3 Bellampally municipality officials pulled up for missing KTRs birthday celebrations

Hyderabad: A memo has been issued to three officials of Bellampally Municipal Council in Mancherial district seeking an explanation on why they did not attend the birthday celebrations of Telangana MAUD minister K. Taraka Rama Rao.

The programme was held at Bellampally Government Hospital.

The memo noted that all staff members were told, via a WhatsApp message, to attend the programme. "But the messages were ignored and the memo was issued due to poor attendance," it read.

The memo, dated 25 July, was issued to T. Rajeswari (senior assistant), Punnam Chander (junior assistant), and Mohan (system manager).

The memo further said disciplinary action will be taken against those who fail to respond within 24 hours.

Bellampally municipal commissioner G. Gangadhar told NewsMeter that no action has been taken against any employee. He clarified that a second memo was issued on 27 July to four officers – T. Rajeswari, Punnam Chander, M. Sravan (bill collector), and Mohan.

He said the memo was issued to the officers for not attending two events that were scheduled on the same day. The first event was the plantation drive held as part of KTR's birthday and the second was the identification of dilapidated houses in view of the rain.

In response to this, KTR tweeted: "I am the last person to encourage sycophancy in politics or administration.

Read about an over enthusiastic Municipal commissioner issuing a memo to subordinates for not attending my birthday celebrations!"

He said that he asked Commissioner & Director of Municipal Administration-Telangana to suspend the Bellampally Municipal Commissioner 'for his absurd behavior.
