Police officers face chaos in Congress rule with multiple transfers in quick succession 

The ongoing transfer season within the police department has plunged the system into chaos. Senior officials are grappling with unpredictable behavior from the Congress government, unsure of when transfer orders will arrive and where they will be relocated. Dozens of officials are caught in this whirlwind, leaving the governance system stumbling. Lower-ranking officers are also affected, facing uncertainty about the arrival and tenure of their superiors.

Since the Congress assumed power in the state, police transfers have turned into a mockery, with no stability in sight. The recent transfer of senior police officer G Sudhir Babu has become a statewide topic of discussion. Initially serving as the Joint Police Commissioner of Hyderabad Traffic Division during the elections, he was later appointed as the Police Commissioner of Rachakonda under the Congress government. However, he was abruptly transferred to the position of IG Multizone-1, only to be left without a posting shortly after.

Similarly, AV Ranganath, who held the position of Warangal Police Commissioner during the elections, faced four transfers in the last four months alone. Vishwaprasad, another senior IPS officer, served in three different roles within three months after the Congress government came into power.

Even IAS officer Sarathchandra Pawar, who served as the SP of Mahabubabad before the elections, found himself shuffled around, landing in the role of Central DCP of the city, before being transferred once again as the SP of Narcotics Bureau. Non-cadre SP Saishri’s journey reflects the chaotic nature of these transfers, moving from DCP of LB Nagar to East Zone DCP, then to DCP of Cyberabad Special Branch in a quick succession.

The frenzy extends to DSPs as well, with Adinarayana, Prashanth Reddy, Samala Venkat Reddy, and DSP KV Suryaprakash Rao experiencing multiple transfers within a short period. In Adinarayana’s case, after getting transferred to Paloncha and reporting there, he was moved again within a day of joining, epitomizing the erratic nature of the process. There are several other instances where even the senior IAS and IPS officers are being shuffled around due to lack of clarity from the Congress government. 

This incessant shuffling not only disrupts the functioning of the police department but also raises concerns about stability and effectiveness in maintaining law and order.
