U V Jose Appointed Kozhikode District Collector


Thiruvananthapuram: In a significant bureaucratic reshuffle, U V Jose IAS, Director, Kerala Tourism has been appointed as Kozhikode District Collector replacing N Prasanth IAS, popularly known as ‘Collector Bro’ with his large following in social media.

However, Prasanth, who was recently issued a show cause notice by S M Vijayanand IAS,  State Chief Secretary, over his spat with M K Raghavan MP, has not been given new posting by the State Cabinet which met here the other day.

The public fight between the replaced Collector and the Kozhikode MP over the spending of MP funds may have cost him dearly, according to sources.

The State Chief Secretary had served a notice on Prasanth stating that he had been charged with misconduct over his public confrontation with the MP.
