The sudden decision of several IAS officers belonging to weaker sections to float a separate platform for themselves to fight against alleged discrimination against them in postings has triggered uproar in political circles of Telangana on Tuesday.

More than 20 IAS officers belonging to SC, ST and OBC sections had a secret meeting at Begumpet on Monday and went in arms against the Telangana Rashtra Samithi government headed by chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao for the injustice meted out to them in postings.

They alleged that several senior IAS officers belonging to these communities were given insignificant posts, while non-cadre officers and those belonging to upper castes were posted in prime positions.

They said they would make a representation to Telangana chief secretary in a day or two explaining their issues.
