Just before the 2019 elections, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy led a delegation of the party leaders to Delhi complaining to the Election Commission that 36 DSPs newly appointed in AP belong to Chandrababu’s community and they will rig the election in TDP’s favor.
Earlier in March this year, the Jagan Government itself in the assembly admitted that the information is factually incorrect.
The Government has given a written reply that only five out of the 36 DSPs belong to Chandrababu Naidu’s community.
Cut to now, Jagan Mohan Reddy Government had transferred 53 DSPs across the state. New DSPs were appointed in the place of current DSPs in 30 Police sub-divisions.
Of that thirty, eleven belong to the Chief Minister’s community. That means 37% of the new DSPs belong to the Reddy community.
Of those currently working as DSPs now, nine have got crucial postings. Four of them belong to the same community again.
Usually, the DSPs transfers will happen every two years. That means they will come in handy for the 2024 elections. Unlike the last time, these are not baseless allegations. Here is the list of the eleven Reddy DSPs.
