Somesh Kumar assumes office as Advisor to Telangana Govt.
Hyderabad, May 12 (Maxim News): Somesh Kumar, Chief Advisor to Chief Minister assumed office on the 6th floor of the Secretariat today.
Priests performed puja in the chambers of the Chief Advisor. Later officials and staff of the secretariat greeted Sri Somesh Kumar on assuming office.
The Chief Advisor expressed his gratitude to the Honourable Chief Minister for once again bestowing faith and giving him an opportunity to serve the state.
It is known that barely a month after taking voluntary retirement from the IAS, former Telangana chief secretary Somesh Kumar has returned to the state power corridors in a crucial role as the Chief Minister and Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) supremo, K Chandrasekhar Rao or KCR, appointed him as his chief advisor in the rank of a Cabinet Minister.
Somesh Kumar, 60, will hold his new office for a period of three years, according to an order issued by the state government.
On December 31, 2019, KCR appointed Kumar as the CS (chief secretary), superseding at least 10 other IAS officers senior to him.
Sources said KCR had made this move as he was impressed by Kumar’s work to increase the state’s tax revenues and GST collection during his stint as the principal secretary (revenue).
The CM depended on Kumar to give shape to several welfare schemes that the BRS government has launched over the past few years besides overseeing their implementation. KCR has praised the ex-CS at several public meetings, stating that his contribution to improving the performance of the revenue department and transforming it in addition to digitising the land records, has been “invaluable” for the state.
