Raju Swamy wins; Kerala CM rejects proposal for his termination

By IndianMandarins- 24 Jun 2019


Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has rejected a proposal of Kerala chief secretary Tom Jose to terminate the service of Raju Narayana Swamy (IAS:1991:KL) who is considered clean.

Swamy, who holds the rank of additional CS, has alleged that he was being targeted as he took stern action against corruption in the Coconut Development Board and that he even rejected union minister D V Sadananda Gowda's request to help the accused.

Indianmandarins has learned that the Chief Minister returned the recommendations against Swamy by seeking some clarifications, including the status of a petition Swamy filed against his abrupt removal from the Coconut Development Board chairman post by the center. The CM also wanted to know whether there were adverse remarks in Swamy's confidential reports.

Swamy was appointed as Coconut Development Board chairman in August 2018. But he was removed from the post in March this year. He, then, moved the CAT against the abrupt removal and final orders are expected in July.

Swamy had claimed that he took stern actions against corruption at the board's regional offices in Bengaluru and Kolkata. He even alleged that union minister Sadananda Gowda wanted him to revoke the suspension of corrupt officials, which he rejected.
