KCR opposes Centre's amendments for AIS:- Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR) opposed the amendments that are announced by the Centre for the All India Services (AIS) Cadre Rules, 1954. The new amendments will allow the Centre to choose the AIS officers without the consent of the governments of the respective states. KCR penned a letter addressing the Prime Minister Narendra Modi calling that the amendments are against the federal structure. He said that the government of Telangana strictly opposes the amendments made and proposed by the Centre. KCR demanded the Centre to cease and desist the proposed amendments at the earliest.

"Considering the functions of the AIS officers in the respective states, the new rule will unilaterally disturb the position and fame of the officials. The power of the officers will be taken on deputation without the involvement of the state government. This would be a dangerous move and is against the Indian constitution. This would destroy the spirit of federalism. This move would give the Centre an indirect control on the officers that are working in the Indian states. This move also interferes into the functioning of the state governments and there would be harassment of the officials. This would also have an impact on the accountability of the AIS officials" wrote KCR in his letter.
