Telangana NGOs have alleged that some senior IAS officers, who are likely to opt for Andhra state after the division, are harassing Telangana employees and transferring them to different places. The transfers are in violation of GO 610, the Presidential orders and other service rules, they said.

TNGO representatives, headed by association president V Srinivas Goud, met chief secretary PK Mohanty and lodged a complaint to this effect on Tuesday.

Speaking to reporters later, Srinivas Goud alleged that some senior IAS officers, who were likely to opt for new Andhra state, were transferring Telangana employees violating rules. The officers were also regularising lands notified under Urban Land Ceiling Act, allotting government lands, with the confidence that they would be working for the new Andhra state.

“The corrupt officers will not be tolerated. Even if they go to Seemandhra, the investigating agencies will probe their affairs,” Srinivas Goud said. The land allotments were being made in revenue, housing and irrigation departments, and in APIIC, he said. Already, around 60 to 70 Telangana employees in panchayat raj, municipal administration, and stamps and registration were transferred, Goud alleged.

He also wanted the government not to create trouble in the police department. Goud said a reserve constable raising Jai Telangana slogan at APNGOs meeting was not a big issue. Telangana was not a banned word, he said. Even after the division, the some police personnel would work in Hyderabad and the government should see that there was hormony among police personnel belonging to all the three regions.

Meanwhile, Telangana Secretariat Employees JAC chairman B Sravan Kumar Reddy and convenor P Raj Kumar Gupta told reporters that the Save AP meeting of APNGOs listed out the losses for Seemandhra, but failed to show at least one benefit to Telangana in United AP. Secretariat Seemandhra employees’ leader Murali Krishna has admitted that the chief minster was backing their agitation, and it shows that who was behind the meeting of APNGOs, Sravan Kumar pointed out.
