CS Jawahar Reddy

Jawahar Reddy’s tenure as Chief Secretary under YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s administration has been marked by controversy and allegations of favoritism. Despite being sixth in the seniority list, he was appointed as Chief Secretary, bypassing more senior officers. This appointment, along with several of his actions during his tenure, has been criticized as politically motivated, aimed at benefiting Jagan’s government.

As the government changes, Jawahar Reddy finds himself in a less favorable position, now ranking sixth in the seniority list behind Nirab Kumar Prasad, Poonam Malakondaiah, Srilakshmi, Karikala Valavan, and Rajit Bhargav. The General Administration Department (GAD) has updated the seniority list, reflecting these changes.
