K Rosaish today shifted the controversial DGP SSP Yadav and appointed Girish Kumar to the top police job. Yadav has been posted as VC & MD of APSRTC.
Intelligence chief Aravinda Rao has been posted as Director General of Anti Corruption Bureau while Dinesh Reddy who was in RTC has been appointed as the Chief of Vigilance and Enforcement. Another IPS officer Gautam Kumar is the new Principal Secretary, Home.
With these postings, political observes say that AP Chief Minister K Rosaiah is consolidating his grip on the administration. There are reports that a large number of IAS officers also will be shifted and given new postings.
After Rosaiah moved into the official chambers of the CM, this is the first major shuffle of IPS officers in the state. There are also media reports that Rosaiah has been given the green signal by the Congress High Command to reshuffle his cabinet also. There is speculation that some pro-Jagan ministers may be dropped and some senior MLAs may be inducted into the cabinet.
