Hyderabad | 7th September 2018
Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) Treasurer Gudur Narayana Reddy on Friday demanded that all the Advisors to the government of Telangana be asked to quit or be removed from their posts.

"In view of the dissolution of Telangana Assembly, a regular government has ceased to exist in Telangana, and the present government is just a caretaker government. Therefore there is no need for any Advisors, at least for now. Governor E S L Narasimhan should either direct all the Advisors to resign from their positions, or issue orders to scrap the post," Reddy said.

The Congress leader said that the Advisors to the government had all been appointed via nomination by the TRS government. They were holding cabinet ranks and getting the facilities that that entailed.

"There is no reason for them to stay in office with the government being of a caretaker nature and with the council of ministers having no decision-making powers. Their continuance in office will not only be a burden on state's exchequer, some of them might also influence the upcoming elections by taking advantage of their posts. Therefore all of them must resign immediately," he said.

"The Congress also demands the immediate resignation of the chairmen of the various corporations, and others holding nominated posts and taking perks from the treasury. Various departments having liaison officers with a PR brief should also quit with immediate effect," Reddy demanded.

The Advisors to Government of Telangana are:

Dr Rajiv Sharma (Chief Advisor)
A K Goel (Planning & Energy)
A Rama Lakshman (Welfare)
B V Papa Rao (Policy & Institutional Development)
K V Ramanachary (Media Affairs)
G R Reddy (Finance)
Dr G Vivekananda (Inter State Affairs)
A K Khan (Minorities Welfare)
Suddala Sudhakar Teja (Architecture Building and Planning Wing of the R&B Department)
Dr Rajendra Prasad Singh (Energy Sector)
Anurag Sharma (Home)

Commenting on the dissolution of the Telangana Assembly, Reddy described the decision as suicidal for KCR. "The decision to dissolve the Assembly eight months in advance shows the anxiety and fear of KCR, also evident from the language he has been using of late," he said. He added that the Congress was all set to win the next elections under the leadership of TPCC President N Uttam Kumar Reddy.
