Amaravati: This is the situation in AP. According to a media report, IT and Panchayat Raj Minister Nara Lokesh will get an honorarium of over 1.5 lakhs. But the OSD for the minister has been drawing remuneration of more than 2 lakhs.
Gutta Kiran who is OSD for Lokesh will only look into IT related matters. There is one more OSD to look into the Panchayati Raj issues and he draws that much handsome remuneration.
By the way, this Gutta Kiran is close relative to Vemuri Ravi President of APNRT who was in news in the recent times for making CM Chandrababu's US tour most controversial.
There is a rumour already that Vemuri Ravi and his brother Hariprasad are having total control over the IT deals of the AP government and that right from MOUs they have control on every move of a transaction. Now Gutta Ravi too has joined the team of Vemuri Ravi who is a close aide of Lokesh! Appointment of Gutta Kiran like people is not something new or strange in AP government and rumours are that most appointments are inappropriately done to favour nepotism!
