ECI Reinstates Telangana’s Top Cop, Anjani Kumar, Following Counting Day Controversy In a surprising turn of events, the Election Commission of India (ECI) has decided to revoke the suspension of Telangana’s Director General of Police (DGP), Anjani Kumar. This decision comes in the wake of allegations that Kumar had violated the model code of conduct on the crucial day of vote counting for the Telangana assembly elections.

Anjani Kumar had faced suspension after a controversial meeting with Congress candidate Anumula C, who eventually secured the position of chief minister in the state. The meeting, which took place at Kumar’s residence in Hyderabad, involved the presence of key figures such as Revanth Reddy, state police nodal officer Sanjay Jain, and nodal officer (expenditure) Mahesh Bhagwat.

The suspended DGP had presented a bouquet of flowers to Revanth Reddy, a move that raised eyebrows and led to swift action from the ECI, citing a breach of the model code of conduct. In response to Kumar’s suspension, the ECI appointed senior IPS officer Ravi Gupta to assume the full additional charge of the Director General of Police in Telangana.

The reinstatement of Anjani Kumar adds another layer of intrigue to this electoral saga, leaving many questioning the motives behind the Election Commission’s decision. The controversy surrounding Kumar’s initial suspension has undoubtedly added fuel to the already intense political climate in Telangana.

As the state grapples with these developments, political observers and citizens alike eagerly await further insights into the intricacies of this unfolding narrative, pondering the potential implications on the region’s political landscape.
