Kothagudem: Yellandu Municipality Commissioner P Saraswathi was surrendered to her parent department following allegations of misuse of power and her alleged politically motivated actions.
The District Collector Rajat Kumar Saini had issued on Friday night.
The official hails from Yellandu and served as an Assistant Section Officer in General Administration Department (Vigilance and Enforcement) before her deputation as the Commissioner of municipality.
A former ward councilor and leaders of MRPS have lodged complaints against Saraswathi of harassing locals and deliberately supporting some politicians. The formation of new wards in which she was involved as the Commissioner led to many allegations.
In the ensuing municipal elections, Saraswathi would be Assistant District Election Authority in view of her post. But as per a circular from the State Election Commission, as she is native of Yellandu she could not be assigned polling duties, an order from the Collector said.
Paloncha Municipality Commissioner Ch Srikanth was given full additional charge of the post of Yellandu Municipal Commissioner, the Collector Saini informed.
