AP CS Adityanath Das writes to DoPT
AMARAVATI: Andhra Pradesh Chief Secretary Adityanath Das wrote a letter to Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) secretary asking not to consider the censure orders sent by State Election Commission against Panchayat Raj officials Gopala Krishna Diwedi and Commissioner Girija Shankar.
He mentioned in the letter that the SEC has no authority to take action to censure the IAS officers and it can recommend only to the state government. It comes under the duty of the state government. It is known that SEC Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar censured two IAS officers for failing to update the electoral rolls.
