While CM K Chandrashekar Rao criticised the Intermediate Board. His subordinates, however, say that Ashok, who has been at the helm of affairs is an able official committed to students welfare.  Sources in the Board told Express that on several occasions the Globarena Technologies representatives were at the receiving end of the secretary’s wrath for doing a shoddy job.
