Congress demands removal of Somesh Kumar as GHMC Chief

The Telangana Congress is gearing up to launch a campaign ‘Somesh Hatao, Shaher Bachao’ demanding transfer of Somesh Kumar as the Commissioner of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation.

Speaking to media persons here, Congress MLC MS Prabhakar accused Somesh Kumar of working like “Chief Election Agent” of Telangana Rashtra Samithi. He said continuance of Somesh Kumar on the post would not ensure free and fair polls. He said while the High Court has directed the government to complete the GHMC election process by December 15, the GHMC chief has been deliberately delaying the process.

Prabhakar said Somesh Kumar was appointed to the Andhra Cadre. However, he has been continuing in Telangana in violation of the rules. (INN)
