Finally, TS follows protocols for Govenor
HYDERABAD: State government officials followed protocol for Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan after a long time when she visited NIT-Warangal to take part in a programme. Hanumakonda district collector Sikta Patnaik and Warangal police commissioner A.V.Ranganath received the Governor, in a departure from the recent practice.
The Governor had been facing protocol issues for two years after the reported differences with Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao.
Collectors and SPs are supposed to receive the Governor when she visits the districts but they stayed away under one pretext or the other. Governor had lodged a complaint to the Centre.
But the recent thaw in relations, where the Governor approved the Budget Session and the government invited her to address the State Legislature appeared to have brought protocol back on the rails.
