Senior journalist and advisor to the Andhra Pradesh government Kondubhatla Ramachandra Murthy understood to have resigned from his post today.
According to a reliable source in the government, Ramachandra Murthy resorted to the extreme step as he is said to be unhappy with his position for what they termed ‘getting pay without work’. The septuagenarian apparently had no work to do anything practically not even advising neither officials nor CM himself as he holds the Advisory position to advise on policies relating to health, education, Dalit and tribal welfare.
Earlier, he worked as the editorial director for Sakshi Media Group owned by the AP CM YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and previously he was MD and CEO of Hyderabad Media House Ltd which runs HMTV, a Telugu news TV channel and The Hans India, an English daily paper. He was also a chief editor of both HMTV and The Hans India for some time.
However, the senior journo, however, confirmed his resignation but refused to elaborate further saying he would love to continue in his first love – Journalism.
