In a surprising turn of events, the Election Commission has decided to revoke the suspension of former Telangana Director General of Police (DGP) Anjani Kumar. The senior police officer found himself in hot water on December 3 when he was suspended for violating the Model Code of Conduct. The reason? A seemingly congratulatory visit to Congress leader Revanth Reddy on the day of the election results.

The Suspension Saga:

Anjani Kumar’s suspension came as a consequence of his impromptu visit to Revanth Reddy’s residence, armed with a bouquet of flowers, as the votes were being counted. The photographs and videos capturing this exchange went viral on social media, prompting swift action from the Election Commission. The suspension was a result of what was deemed a violation of the code of conduct, raising questions about the impartiality of law enforcement officials during critical political events.

Political Interactions:

The controversial meeting took place between Anjani Kumar, Sanjay Jain (state police nodal officer), and Revanth Reddy before the election results were officially announced. Revanth Reddy, a prominent Congress leader and contestant in the Telangana Assembly polls, eventually played a pivotal role in securing a victory for the Congress in the state. The Congress emerged victorious with 64 out of 119 seats, forming its first government in Telangana.

The Congress’ Triumph:

Revanth Reddy, hailed as the star campaigner for the Congress, directly challenged Telangana Chief Minister and BRS supremo K Chandrashekar Rao. The Congress’ resounding success marked a significant shift in the political landscape of Telangana, as it secured a simple majority in the Assembly elections. The BJP won 9 seats, the All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) secured 7 seats, and the Communist Party of India claimed 1 seat, further diversifying the political representation in the state.


The decision to lift Anjani Kumar’s suspension raises eyebrows and sparks discussions about the intersection of law enforcement and politics. As Telangana navigates this intricate web, the political dynamics continue to evolve, leaving observers and citizens alike curious about the future implications of such incidents on the state’s governance and electoral processes.
