Telangana Non-Gazetted Officers Association (TNGOA) has elected Mamilla Rajendar as its new President following the retirement of outgoing president Karam Ravinder Reddy from the government service.
The state executive committee which met here today at its association office here in the city today has unanimously resolved to elect its serving general secretary Mamilla Rajendar as president of the association. Rajendar is currently working as Superintendent in the District Medical and Health Department (DMHO) at Sangareddy.
He was earlier worked as the District unit president before being elected as General Secretary of the state unit. He was at the forefront of the Telangana Movement under the leadership of former President Devi Prasad.
The TNGO leaders have been calling shots in state politics, especially during the Telangana movement. Subsequent to the formation of Telangana and TRS assuming power, the TNGO leaders like Swamy Goud, Devi Prasad could call shots in securing plum posts politically. Devi Prasad is now currently chairman of Telangana State Beverages Corporation. Earlier, Swamy Goud who worked as the President of TNGO was later elevated to the post of Chairman, Telangana Legislative Council.
The trend, however, did not continue after the formation of the state as hopes of getting a plum post for the outgoing TNGO president Karem Ravindar Reddy appears to be bleak. If one goes by the developments over the last 5 years, the importance of TNGOs have not just come down but was completely eroded with TRS boss and the Chief Minister refusing even appointment leave aside entertaining them.
The scenario forced Rajendar’s predecessors to go into oblivion and retire dignifiedly instead of taking ‘panga’ with his political bosses. Now it is to be seen how best the new incumbent Rajendar can manoeuvre to get the long pending demand of PRC from the state government. Rajendar, however, declared that his immediate task is to get the PRC as it has been pending for 7 years.
