Justice Reddy came into the Goa Lokayukta chair amidst controversies and agitation from local activists in particular Aires Rodrigues. In fact his swearing-in ceremony was greeted with Black Flags.
In September, two Goa government departments which had made recruitments by the hundreds before the 2012 Assembly Elections were issued notice by the state Lokayukta.
Justice Reddy had asked the Goa Medical College and the state health department to explain the process followed in the hiring drive.
Also last month, the YSR Congress had lodged a complaint with the Nellore IV Town police station against Justice Reddy for his alleged derogatory comments over the Seemandhra agitation at the All India Telangana Writers Forum (AITWF).
