Ex-EO of Kanaka Durga temple back in plum post!

Within five weeks of getting shunted out of the post of executive officer of famous Kanaka Durga temple in Vijayawada following allegations of irregularities, senior endowments department official M V Suresh Babu is now back in a plum post.

The Jagan Mohan Reddy government on Monday posted him as the Regional Joint Commissioner Endowments Department, Rajamahendravaram, which is a sort of promotion for him. Orders to this effect were issued by principal secretary of revenue(endowments) department Dr G Vani Mohan.

In the first week of April, the state government transferred Suresh Babu from the post of Kanaka Durga temple EO, following several complaints of irregularities allegedly indulged in by him. 

The Anti-Corruption Bureau sleuths conducted raids on the temple premises for three days in February which exposed the dereliction of duty by temple staff, contract works for sanitation, engineering and irregularities in the temple administration.

The ACB in its report pointed out that Suresh Babu had made payments against the wish of the Endowments Commissioner. While 15 employees of the temple were suspended, Suresh Babu was spared initially, but was shifted out of his post later.

Surprisingly, after the transfer, Suresh Babu was posted as Regional Joint Commissioner Endowments Department, Rajamahendravaram, with immediate effect.

However, following criticism from various quarters, the posting was cancelled and he was asked to report to the government.

But after everybody forgot the scam in the Kanaka Durga temple after a month, the government quietly posted Suresh him as RJC, Rajahmundry. He would be taking charge in a day or two.

Sources said Suresh Babu is a close associate of endowments minister Vellampalli Srinivas Rao and hence, could easily escape the punishment and instead, got the promotion.
