LDF govt transfers Devikulam Sub-Collector Sriram Venkitaraman

However, the party will not go for open criticism or public fight over the transfer.

The state cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan here made a decision to shift Devikulam sub-collector Sriram Venkataraman, who has been promoted and appointed as Employment and Training Director.

In his drive against land-grabbers, Sriram's immediate boss-revenue minister E. Chandrashekaran from junior alliance partner Communist Party of India-had strongly backed him.

Interestingly, Chandrashekaran, who had previously ruled out transferring his officer, Wednesday said it is a normal promotional transfer.

Even though revenue minister and CPI leader E Chandrasekharan, while talking to reporters played down the transfer as but a routine administrative decision, grapevine has it that the minister wasn't on the same page as his cabinet colleagues over the decision to transfer the young sub-collector. The CPI has been backing the sub-collector and Chandrasekharan did not attend a high-level meeting on Munnar convened by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Saturday. A large section of the population in Munnar had migrated to work at the plantations there decades ago, and still do not have proper land deeds.

An IAS officer, who had taken a strong stand against encroachers on government land at the hill station of Munnar in Kerala's Idukki district, was on Wednesday shifted by the state government. He took over as Devikulam subcollector in July, 2016. Sriram had sent an eviction notice to the resort, and the owner had challenged it in the court.
