Warangal: TPCC president A. Revanth Reddy on Saturday demanded Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao be booked for causing the death of a job aspirant, who died by suicide in Rajanna Sircilla, following the cancellation of TSPSC examinations.

Chitikena Naveen Kumar, 31, allegedly ended his life hanging at his residence of B.Y. Nagar in Sircilla town on Friday night when his parents went to work at a beedi company.

Naveen was the third and the youngest son of Nagabhushanam and Susheela. A graduate in hotel management, he qualified in the Group-I Preliminary examination held by the TSPSC and was preparing for the Mains examination with the confidence of securing a government job.

But after learning that the Prelims examination has been cancelled in the wake of question paper leakage, Naveen slipped into depression and took the extreme step, according to family members.

In the suicide note purportedly written by him, it was mentioned: “I’m useless for all jobless. Unsatisfied life. No one is reason for this. Thank you to my family. I quit.”— undersigned as Naveen.

Responding to the incident, Revanth Reddy through his Twitter account tweeted, “Under the cruel ruling of KCR, one more unemployed youth ended his life. Day and night after working hard when Naveen Kumar of Sircilla town was qualified for Group-I examination, with ongoing leakage of question papers in the BRS government, he was depressed and took the extreme step.”

The state government must help the bereaved family by announcing `1 crore ex gratia immediately and registering a case of murder against KCR, he demanded.
Meanwhile, the IT Minister and Sircilla MLA K.T. Rama Rao spoke to the father of Naveen over the phone and assured the bereaved family of support from the government. He also ordered the Sircilla municipal officials to help the family with his final rites.
