Congress MPs and MLA from Telangana and on Wednesday met Governor ESL Narasimhan at Raj Bhavan and submitted a memorandum demanding dismissal of Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission Chairman Y Venkatarami Reddy as allegations of irregularities pouring against him.
Talking to media persons after submitting the memorandum to the Governor, MP Mandha Jagannatham said that the delegation sought action against the APPSC Chairman for serious irregularities in recruitments.
He revealed that the delegation also urged Governor to cancel the Group-1 preliminary examination which was conducted by APPSC on September 5 as the question paper was leaked inside 15 minutes from the commencement of the examination.
Mr Jagannatham revealed that the delegation had also urged the Governor to order the APPSC to re-conduct the examination as thin attendance was reported in many Telangana centres due to bandh call given by Telangana Rashtra Samithi which was spearheading a demand of 42 percent quota in recruitments for Telanganaites.
He said the governor responded favourably to the delegation demands but also expressed helplessness to initiate steps in this direction as the APPSC is a constitutional body.
MP Sarvy Satyanarayana also spoke. The delegation comprised of MPs G Surender reddy, Rajaiah, Balaram Naik and MLA R Damodar Reddy.
