AE suspended for negligence
GHMC Commissioner B Janardhan Reddy suspended an assistant engineer attached to electric wing on charges of negligence. It was the commissioner who lodged a complaint, on myghmc app stating that a streetlight was not functioning on the Tank Bund on February 10. Any complaint received through GHMC app should be resolved within 24 hours. But AE Ramesh contacted the complainant on phone after three days without knowing that the person was the commissioner himself.
When Ramesh sought more information about the complainant, the commissioner was aghast and revealed his identity and wanted to know the reason for delay in not attending to the complaint. Though the AE explained that he was on leave for two days, the commissioner said emergency complaint should be tackled immediately and issued orders suspending Ramesh for his negligence of duty.
