Telangana DGP Suspended for Meeting with TPCC President

HYDERABAD, India – Telangana Director General of Police (DGP) Anjani Kumar was suspended today by the Election Commission of India (ECI) for violating the model code of conduct.

Kumar met with Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president A Revanth Reddy at his residence yesterday, while the counting of votes for the Telangana Legislative Assembly election was still underway. The visit raised eyebrows as the Congress had already established a clear lead in the election.

The ECI considered Kumar’s meeting with Reddy to be a violation of the model code of conduct, which prohibits government officials from engaging in activities that could be seen as favoring a particular political party.

In addition to suspending Kumar, the ECI has also issued show-cause notices to Additional DG Law and Order, Sanjay Jain, and ADG CID, Mahesh Bhagwat, who accompanied Kumar to Reddy’s residence.

The ECI’s decision is a significant development in the Telangana election, as it raises questions about the impartiality of the state police force. The Congress party has welcomed the ECI’s decision, while the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) party has condemned it.
