Jagan Refuse CAT Order On ABV, Approaches High Court

Sunday, June 23, 2024

Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy, who is continuing his victimisation against senior IPS officer and former intelligence chief AB Venkateswara Rao, since he came to power seems to be determined not to allow him into government till his retirement, scheduled to be on May 31.

Though for the second time the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) found fault in the government’s suspension orders against him and directed for his immediate reinstatement, refusing to honor the verdict. Earlier, the government also ignored the Supreme Court’s directive and also CAT’s verdict on his suspension.

The government has approached the AP High Court seeking an interim order to stay the execution of CAT orders, expressing its determination not to take him into duty.  IPS AB Venkateswara Rao, DGP and Union Home Secretary have been named as defendants in the lawsuit.

The summer vacation special bench will hear the case on the 23rd of this month. IPS AB Venkateswara Rao approached CAT against the order issued by the AP government suspending him. The CAT held that the two suspensions on the same charge were invalid.

It ordered the state government to lift the suspension and hand over the responsibilities immediately and pay the salary arrears. However, Jagan Mohan Reddy’s government, which is targeting and harassing IPSAB Venkateswara Rao,  filed a lawsuit in the High Court after the CAT verdict was not accepted.

 In the lawsuit filed by the Deputy Secretary of General Administration G Jayaram filed an affidavit on his behalf of the Chief Secretary. Jayaram stated in the affidavit that the CAT erred in passing the order lifting the suspension.

He said CAT did not consider the fact that there were sufficient reasons for the suspension. He said that CAT has failed to comply with the judgments given by various High Courts. CAT orders are not rational.

He said that the chargesheet has already been filed in the case registered against Venkateswara Rao in 2021 and the central government has given permission for the investigation in this case on May 2 this year. He said that if he is reinstated in the service at this stage, it will affect the trial in the lower court. In this context, they want an urgent inquiry into their lawsuit.

Earlier, IPSAB Venkateswara Rao had requested the Chief Secretary to implement CAT orders after issuing them. When the Chief Secretary forwarded the file to the Chief Minister, he ordered to challenge the CAT order in the High Court.
