According to sources the tension between the revenue employees and the CM is not a new one. Meanwhile, KCR has been adamant and has not been granting an appointment to these officials, they have tried to use other influential people who could put a word to the Chief Minister about their woes. Furthermore much to their dismay, KCR has decided to go ahead with his own plans. Reportedly one really doesn't understand if the new reforms promised by KCR would reduce or eliminate corruption or the current disputes and the TRS Chief's idea is not a new one. Meanwhile during his Chief Ministership in united Andhra Pradesh, after Telugu Desam Party swept into power, Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao (NTR) had taken up similar reforms in the revenue department.
Apparently, he had replaced the five-tier structure in the department with a four-tier one. Perhaps this later paved way for the Mandal Parishad reforms, with the abolishing of village accountants in 1985. Hence despite triggering protests from revenue officials and those who lost jobs, this move of NTR was received well by people who were looking for a solution for land disputes. Moreover, in case of KCR, he has not made any specific announcements apart from the need for an inclusive title for landholders, with respect to the changes he has promised to initiate in the revenue department.
Perhaps he has made it clear that he is hell-bent on taking up the reforms, political observers say that corruption in government is also linked to political corruption. Accordingly, KCR's promises seem utopian, without addressing the problem of political corruption, a lot of information points to how he is taking a leaf out of NTR's administration and reforms.
