The ongoing internal squabbles within the bureaucracy of YSR Congress party Government in Andhra Pradesh headed by YS Jagan Mohan Reddy led to the  sacking of CS LV Subramanyam with only five months to retire

The  abrupt transfer of Chief Secretary LV Subramanyam on Monday has exposed tne internal squabbles within Jagan regime. Subramanyam was shunted out of his post by the same IAS officer Praveen Prakash, Principal Secretary (Political) in the Chief Minister’s office (CMO), against whom he had issued a show cause notice three days ago.

This is for the first time in the history of Telugu States or any State that a CS has been transferred abruptly. Normally, senior IAS officers towards the fag end of their career are appointed as CS and they retire from the civil services as CS. Subramanyam, who is still left with five moths service before he retires,  was transferred as director general of AP Human Resources Development Institute at Bapatla in Guntur district, an insignificant post for his stature.

The 1983 batch IAS officer was asked to hand over the charge of chief secretary to another senior IAS officer Neerabh Kumar Prasad, chief commissioner of land administration.

N Chandrababu Naidu had sidestepped him  in the appointment as chief secretary. Naidu preferred Anil Kumar Punetha as the CS. But he was chosen by the Election Commission of India just a week before the Lok Sabha elections in April and allowed by Jagan to continue as the chief secretary  till now .

He was relieved of his duty with immediate effect, giving the charge to the chief commissioner of land acquisition, Neerabh Kumar Prasad. Obviously he differed with  CM Jagan on Rena, not the Kalam award as YSR award.Secondle he questioned the authority of Praveen Prakash in   Issuing GOs independently without seeking approval of CS.

In addition to the delay in orders, the chief minister was also upset with some of the IAS officers still reporting to Chandrababu Naidu.
The copies of the GOs are sent to the TDP chief by some IAS officers before they were numbered and released.
Though the chief minister asked the CS to identify such officers and take action, Subrahmanyam did not make any move to arrest this leakage, leading to his transfer.
