He appears to have submitted a biased report to the Government
of Andhra Pradesh. Based on which the Government of Andhra
Pradesh issued, Social Welfare (J) Department
dated 20.3.1984 cancelling the Scheduled caste certificate issued
to Sri Chandrasekhara Lingam. Before cancelling the said certifi-

casue notice to Sri Chandrasekhara Lingam. The Government of
Andhra Pradesh also did not furnish a copy of the report submit-

said G.O. was issued cancelling the caste certificate. Question-

20.3.1984 the Government of Andhra Pradesh issued another
Memo No.543/J2/84-1 dated 3.4.1984 which was communicated

(Budaga) jangams in Telangana area and all the social status/caste
certificates issued to number of candidates and employees study-

celled and benefits if any given to them on the basis of the certifi-
cates must be recovered and prosecution should be launched
against them for producing false certificates.

proceedings, the 1st respondent cancelled Memo No.B/55 dated
