Chennai: Tamil Nadu Government on Thursday revoked the suspension of former state chief secretary K. Gnanadesikan and Geology and Mines Commissioner Atul Anand.
Gnanadesikan was suspended last year in August from service on charges of alleged irregularities and for certain decisions on power tenders and contracts during his tenure. Anand was suspended after being accused of having links in beach sand mining.
The suspension of both the senior bureaucrats was issued by late chief minister J. Jayalalithaa after a high-level meeting last year.
The suspension of Gnanadesikan had led to widespread condemnation from bureaucrats across the state.
The revoke comes amidst the existing political crisis and the power tussle between O Panneerselvam And Sasikala rooting for the Chief Minister’s post.
