AP: IAS officer Nimmagadda reinstated after SC pulled Jagan Reddy Govt

On April 10, the YS Jagan Mohan Reddy government removed Ramesh Kumar Nimmagadda (Retd IAS:1982:AP) from the post of SEC through an ordinance, which sought to reduce the term of the SEC from five years to three years and appointed a retired Madras high court judge V Kanagaraj in his place.

The Andhra Pradesh government issued orders reinstating retired IAS officer Nimmagadda as the state election commissioner a week after the SC pulled it up for defying the state high court directions.

A government order reinstating Ramesh Kumar as SEC was issued around midnight by Principal Secretary for Panchayat and Rural Development department Gopala Krishna Dwivedi (IAS:1993:AP). A gazette notification was issued subsequently restoring the position of SEC to Nimmagadda.

The notification says the reinstatement would be subject to the outcome of the case in the Supreme Court, which is hearing a petition filed by the state government challenging the high court ruling on the reinstatement of Ramesh Kumar.

Accordingly, orders were issued ending the term of Ramesh Kumar who had just completed four years and retired Madras high court judge V Kanagaraj was appointed in his place.
