IAS officer Praveen Prakash and principal secretary in the Andhra Pradesh chief minister's office who served show-cause notices before shunting of the chief secretary LV Subrahmanyam is once again in the news.

In a most surprising note, the IAS officer wrote a letter to his salary drawing and disbursing officer and assistant secretary in the General Administration Ch Rama Rao, asking him not pay his salary until the contract and outsourcing employees are paid.
