Madhya Pradesh IAS officer Sibi Chakkravarthy M, who had congratulated J Jaylalithaa on her victory in Facebook post got notice.

On May 19, the day the poll results were declared, Chakkravarthy put up a Facebook post that said, “Congrats Amma”. He deleted the post within a few hours.

This comes a week after Barwani collector Ajay Singh Gangwar was transferred after he praised first PM Jawaharlal Nehru on Facebook.

Earlier this week, Gangwar was also issued a notice for his allegedly advocating a civil revolution against PM Modi in a Facebook comment.

General Administration Department (GAD) Secretary, Rashmi Arun Shami confirmed issuing the notice to Chakkravarthy for violating the civil service code for his posting a congratulatory message to J Jayalalithaa on her victory in the assembly polls in Tamil Nadu in Facebook.

She said, “Yes, the notice was served to Chakkravarthy. Reply is going to come shortly.”
