HYDERABAD: This is not an imposter, D Krishna Bhaskar was to say Monday to a curious citizen, Bharath Reddy. Reddy found the district collector Rajanna Sircilla on Twitter, and also active. “Are you Krishna Bhaskar, IAS garu,” said Bharat Reddy, to whom the collector replied with a smiley, saying he was not an imposter in the twitter world. Reddy’s astonishment was not without reason because the majority collectors who had received tricks from the state government did not make themselves accessible to the people on the microblogging site.
The Minister of Informatics, K T Rama Rao, is active on Twitter and the expected collectors follow their example.
Although some babus are scholars, most feel handicapped by technology or marry on communication skills.
And this includes the district collector of Hyderabad, Rahul Bojja, and the district collector of Ranga Reddy, M Raghunandan.
The urban collector of Warangal Amrapali Kata is not active on Twitter, but she took the micro blogging site to name and shame someone. On April 18, the collector tweeted a picture of a bus stop saying: Shaaaaaaaaaame !!!! Shikara Academy scrolls our freshly painted bus stop in Nakallagutta!
