Election Time: BRS busy posing yesmen as RDOs?
With elections fast approaching, the ruling BRS in Telangana is working overtime to ensure that pliant officers are posted to man key assembly constituencies. The officers at the RDO level will work as the returning officers for various assembly constituencies. Hence, appointing right officials at the right places is of crucial importance for the ruling party.

Highly placed sources say that the BRS government is now looking to make transfers of key officials as per the guidelines imposed by the election commission. At the same time, it wants favourable officials to be posted in key constituencies to help the party win the election, allege political rivals. Hence, a massive exercise is on in the secretariat to effect transfers and postings.

If sources are to be believed, CMO's key official and KCR's favourite civil servant Smitha Sabharwal has been entrusted with the responsibility of preparing the list of the officials who would be transferred. Sources also revealed that Minister Harish Rao is actively involved in the process. They point out that Harish Rao had spent the whole day in the secretariat. Sources also revealed that he worked quite late into the night to finalise the list of the officials.

Saturday was Harish Rao's birthday. He usually prefers a quiet birthday and likes to spend time with the family members. But, he had to keep his personal engagements aside and spend the whole day at the secretariat assisting the senior officials in finalizing the lists. The BRS feels that ensuring that favourable officials are posted in the right constituencies is of utmost importance in ensuring the party's victory at the hustings.
