Even as there was pandemonium, board member Challa Babu has submitted his resignation. Singhal then suggested that it is the norm that whenever there is a regime change, the members of the boards appointed by the outgoing regime have to resign on their own on moral grounds. But, TTD chairperson Putta Sudhakar Yadav challenged this and said that if the government wants, it can dismiss the board.
It is clear that the current TTD board, which has political appointees, are determined to create a scene. The precedent of 2014 shows that when the regime changes, the board chairperson and his team put in their papers. Kanumuri Bapiraju did this after Kiran Kumar Reddy took over from Rosaiah. Let's see how Jagan deals with this issue. It will also be his baptism by fire. Let's see if Jagan can score a six on TTD's sticky wicket.
